    32 pick up on scimitar chassis

    Have been working on this since last September, another club member changed his mind about building a Scimitar rod so as I had a body available and I am unable to resist another project.

    It is the same ex Bay area rods body that Hardy county used to sell so is not an accurate replica.

    I unchopped the body 2" and took the slant out of the windscreen ( pics form last build as I did not take any this time)









    Following pics are the actual body





    Bent some channel to make guttering



    After lots of filling and sanding



    Plan is to fit a 1.8 zetec engine with Lexus is 200 6 speed gearbox on an unmodified chassis





    Modify some 32 wings to make a full fendered rod













    Made some false horns and a moulding to cover the steel plate



    Out riggers are too far forward so I modified the fenders to reduce the visual impact using a quick skirt moulding from my 34 fenders





    Frame work for the shortened running boards



    Lengthen the bed to cover the rear end of the chassis





    Widen the tailgate so the rear fenders sit right on the wheels without widening them.





    Bulkhead mounted brakes with Audi pedals box and servo I had in the shed



    Home made dash using 5" gauges



    Stainless tank mounted under the bed behind cab



    Prepping the fenders for paint this weekend.

    That's very nice. The fenders are like English 'b' ones with your '34' bit added. Neil.

    Great project, you are creating something special without spending a fortune, just good old hotrodding ingenuity.
    Please keep the updates and pics coming
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!
