    Model A Sedan -- Pendine 2020 -- take CONTROL

    OK guys here goes.... Not strictly in my shed,,, and I'm getting a lot of help

    The 1930 Model A sedan build is underway...at a top secret location in the south of England, just off the A35 ...Now I'm sure its a handy place to get to for you southern jockeys (South is anywhere below Preston to me, apologizes to the midlands, once you hit Oxford you may as well be in France) anyhow it's an 8 hr drive for me to get there .....So this better be a winner, or mebe I just need a faster car.

    It has been stripped to reveal the bones of the beast... After a few cuppas and a lot of chin rubbing..the plan is :-

    32 model B chassis , pinched to accept Model A body
    40's Ford rear axle and transverse spring
    Buick drum brakes
    3" roof chop

    It already has a magnificent Flathead, which is how/why I started this whole thing off in the first place

    body will be taken back to bare steel.....I've not decided how to finish it off yet.....but cost is a big part so it'll not be getting a flash paint job ....

    However my daughter suffers from severe epilepsy and their colors are Purple...and 'take CONTROL' is a phrase used in the literature ...So dark grey and Purple are high on my list to use.


    Anyhow I'm not too up on tech but apparently there are the current pics ...

    As an ex-Cumbrian now living the dream in the sunny South I'm intrigued by this although my browser won't support the pics! I was lucky enough to have a quick look around a local 'Speedshop' and there was a very nice A sedan body in progress, might image stumbled across the lair of the beast? . If so , give me a shout if I can be of any assistance , I well remember the long drive from the Great Border City to the south coast, not easy.

    UPDATE ...... CHOP CHOP ..... 3 and 1/4" comes out ....Roof line gets some attitude.








    And I'm happy to admit it's not me doing all the hard work (Go Jim and the Boys n Girls ) ....but I am knocking my pan in to be able to get this done .....I'll happily tell the full story to any of you if you ask me at any of the 2020 meets I manage to get to.

    Current plan is to be at Hot Rods n Hills, so fingers crossed it all comes together.....

    Its now at the blasters to clean it up and uncover any remaining Sh**e bodges from the previous place it was painted...you can't see from the pics but there were bits of panels stuck on with NO MORE NAILS, then bondo and painted over ..... turns out you can polish a TRUD..so first it is being UNPOLISHED

    I don't have pics cos I don't have access to instagram ......( cos I refuse to register with the several well known media platforms of instagram, twitter, faceache etc and all that other stuff that I see as crap underhand ways to just annoy me)

    Anyhow apparently there are some pics of the car at ..... qsemetalblast ...
