  1. Here is your roadster, its a drawing.
  2. My pulley is different than all of those and no balancer. I had the crank, rods, fly wheel and pistons balanced. These cars must have a bunch of different things put on over the years.
  3. I bought ECI kit last month, even with custom wheels I had to grind the caliper a tad. Master cylinder is on its way from ECI this week. I had to put a left steering arm on the right side.
  4. Are these the ones that are 1700.00? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1946-1947-1948-Chrysler-Desoto-Dodge-Plymouth-swan-neck-mirrors-2-Need-work/274063744900?hash=item3fcf78df84:g:KXkAAOSwThNdr16Y
  5. I've Always owned Mopar's. In 1988 my first car was a 1967 Dodge Charger it had a 318 with a broken crank. Towed it to high school and rebuilt the motor. It was light yellow with white interior. My most recent Mopar is my 1949 first series P15C. My favorite Mopar is a 1969 hemi GTX.

    49 P15C off frame resoration

    This an update for the last couple years. My work solowed down after my secound son was born in January. And an accident at work left me with a broken leg and months of recovery. Now three years later after saving my marriage. I'm starting to prep for paint, matte finish gunmetal. Look close at the fenders, I creased them to look like trim. I will use the original color on the firewall and roof, in gloss. I'm thinking of no bumpers, but murphy's law tells me to install them, maybe custom fit.
  7. I'm 46, My first car was a Mopar and I've owned about 20 more, mostly muscle cars. My outlook is that all of us are keeping the classic cars and trucks alive for future motor heads. That's a great thing for a world that is steering away from combustion engines. I hope future generations think about our contribution.🌎
  8. I ordered my wheels from Vinteques in Feb. and haven't got them yet. They have a supplier problem in China, they weld the drums to the centers. So call them and get lead times. If that's the route you choose.
  9. Great work Nick, Looks like your making good decisions. Brakes look great.
  10. I had to cut mine out with a Dremel tool on my 49. I took the bearing and had the SN looked up. It was from a 47 Plymouth truck. So my axle was changed, must have been a bad accident.
  11. Has anyone heard from the Plymouth doctor lately? My 49 P15C is only waiting his parts to weld on and then ready for paint. His voice mail box is full, I've talked to a few guys that have not been able to contact him.
  12. Nick, I did the same as you. Look at my photos in my profile. A word of advice, don't rush. You will regret it later. The floors took me three or four months and just weekends. I'm at the body work stage after putting the body back on the frame, watch Eastwood videos if you don't know about fillers. These cars have a ton of curves, so they show everything. Keep the updated photos coming.
  13. Hi Everyone, Here is my work in progress and another I found that I like the stance.
