  1. Working really hard to try and make the dream cruise this year. Fingers crossed.
  2. Correcting the record. Visited my Grandpa the other day and asked more details. Recollection of story was not clear only that Mr. Robert's dad, Joseph was involved in the automotive industry. Robert passed away a long while back so no way to reconfirm the specific without more records. However, my grandpa gave me a shaving cup that belonged to our Joseph Frazer (picture below). I pointed out that we had the wrong Joseph in mind. Our Joseph may have been involved in the auto industry, but he wasn't Joseph Washington Frazer 😎. I'm keeping the cup though because it's pretty cool
  3. My first welding rig. Okay its not so straight, only three of four wheels touch the ground at a time, and it cost more to make than to buy, but look at that weld. Okay that's on the thicker stuff. I'm still working on getting the thinner gages clean. Advice for others just learning like me, forget about the flux core stuff. Go straight to the shielding gas set up and your welds will be much cleaner and easier to form. I'm using 75% Argon 25% CO2
  4. Hi Larkin Im working on my first car as well 47 P15.. The guys on this forum have been awesome.
  5. Close. Engineer by education and one time rally car builder and racer for fun. He has the coolest old mazda with a rotary engine in his shop that had all kinds of roll bar support and electronic modifications. Looked like a space ship from a really old time movie. he told me his welds were just as rough a first and i'll be drawing a good bead in no time.
  6. Learned how to weld today from a family friend (same friend lending us the rotisserie). Its a little rough right now but had a blast learning. Our plan is to build a cart for our own welding unit next weekend before trying to weld on the Plymouth. Mom and dad learned how to weld also.
  7. We live just down the Highway from the Plymouth Doctor (Mr. Brandon) and his parts are the the mounts that come off the frame. You need the mounts off the body. Mr. Brandon said no one makes the body side mounts anymore. Your going to have to fabricate them. I have the same issue but mine are gone all together. you can see in the photo below. I probably should have cut the ends off before having the body sandblasted, but that would have only mattered for one or two of them as the others were just gone. I would be interested to see how you do this as I'll need to figure this out soon too. Right now I think we plan to fix as much of the floor as possible before placing the body back in place and measuring for the months from there.
  8. oops I added my last to the wrong chain. Thanks

  10. Half the front suspension is apart. Seems like we are just crawling along, but dad says were making good progress.
  11. The struggle is real. None of the nuts bolts or washers survived this tear down. The one bolt that didn't need to be cut off was bent up. Cleaning these bumpers up will be fun?
  12. My paint couldn't be saved so we used a local powder coating shop. I did like the original pattern on my dash and wish we could have saved it, but person before me painted the dash while in the car with gray.
  13. We confirmed that we have the correct brake conversion kit for our spindles today so we are offering up the old front drums and parts to anyone who needs them. Please no one planning to resell. Taker will have to pay for shipping and the parts will need some cleaning but otherwise no charge and just return the favor to someone else down the road. Pictures below are for left side. We have right side too. Send request to my dad (NickPick'sCrew)
