  1. A little update on our project. We have the universal cross member and motor mounts on order. And found some 2.5" diameter perches for the 10 bolt rear end.
  2. I would have no idea if its good or not, but as soon as it warms up here in MN I'll try to flush the thing out and let you know. Just pay the freight and throw a couple bucks my way and its yours. You don't by chance have any spare fender lights do you?
  3. The original radiator is not efficient enough and will be replaced by a brassworks radiator. I contacted them last year but have not ordered it yet. But they have made one for a 1931 chevy which should be very similar. They want you to measure the radiator and then they'll let you know if it will fit. I will be bolting the original Radiator cap in place and turning out a new fill neck under the hood. Ordered from brassworks that way. I looked back at your previous post that others replied to and gathered that you might be interested in my old radiator core. But it sat without its crown jewel for years and so I believe that the radiator is filled with mud from wasps.
  4. Very nice well want a spare engine/transmission/carb. But cool I might need some pictures if you get the time. Good pictures of the back seat, and the front bumper. Oh and good picture of how wiper arm attaches to motor. But maybe post them via private message vs this guys thread.
  5. Thankfully this car does not have a lot of chrome. Pretty much just this shroud. And I have some companies that we work with on plating so I'm hoping that will help.
  6. The indian head already has a threaded bolt hole on the underside where the clip and gasket attached so its perfect dor bolting down. And this emblem is off a worse shroud that I bought just to get the emblem. Besides the bumpers this was the one piece I was missing.
  7. Ok so lets talk about the shroud. Amazingly one of my best friends had some stainless steel wire screening at work that he gave me that is a 100% match the the rusty plated wire in my shroud. So actually an upgrade! The plating has pealed off parts of the shroud. So what kind of prep work do I need to do to have this thing replated? The screen just unbolts as does the old radiator. Brassworks thinks they have a radiator that will work and we will put the fill neck under the hood and bolt the indian head radiator cap in place to the shroud.
  8. Ok after a hour long call from my new best friend I have some more info on the 27 Buick. Earlier picture was a different car not his. His steering is a GM saginaw power steering box for a Nova, with pitman arm. It was mounted behind the axle and then it ran to the passenger side wheel which then crossed back to the drivers wheel. He also put the master cylinder under the drivers feet and battery under the passengers feet with trap door in the floor for access.
  9. Yeah his didn't come with side mounts he added them there. We will be cleaning up two original rims and putting them in the fenders for show. I will get custom narrow rims for that area later. I'll be using the original front axle and spindles and hubs so I am planning on making an adapter plate to bolt to the 6 lug pattern and convert to the 5 bolt. We currently are trying to figure out if we can find and make a power steering unit work. Can't do mustang front end on this car. Fenders dive to fast and narrow.
  10. Rob have you posted any pictures of your car? We have a 31 sports sedan that we are doing a restomod on. It will look mostly stock. No chopping but we will be upgrading drive line to 350 ours has the two side mount tires and luggage rack on back.
  11. Stephen see link i just added above. I am using a 4wd s10 rearend that had disc brakes and limited slip. It is only 2" wider than my stock unit. So 1" conversion plate on the fronts will maker line up. For now i have some ar-762 rims but there is a company that builds new rims to look like originals and even fit original center caps. That is the end goal. Like to build a skinny set that will fit in fenders as well as full size yet skinny donuts.
  12. Very nice I'm currently working on a 1931 sport sedan. What are your plans.
  13. I wish I knew. We only met him the weekend before we picked up this car. But I did find someone that knows him so hopefully I'll hear back soon.
  14. Thought y'all would like a little update. Its not a huge step but it paves the way to getting motor/tranny (turbo 350) seated and rear end mounted. I have an S10 limited slip disc brake 10bolt rearend that is within 1-2 inches of stock width. Once engine and rearend are in place I will need to replace the leaf springs and order a drive shaft. Though im thinking I should maybe wait on that till I have the steering figured out. Then our next step will be to find a steering setup that we like. I've meet one person the put a power steering unit infront of the axle. With a couple universal joints. This is the other guys car for steering reference.
