Jobe's entry: 1959 Type 1. Snow drift to driver.

Postby Jobe » Sat Dec 10, 2011 2:01 am

I would like to start with a Big Thanks to the KCW crew for putting on such a cool motivational and entertaining production with this new build off contest.

My goal for the month of january is to make this 59' sedan a clean driver. a few weeks ago i built a beam for it then i did a 1-3/8" shortened panhead.

The car is dissassembled now for bodywork, interior, drivetrain, and a shit load of assembly, That I am hopefull I can achieve by january 31 with this new motivation.

As with all of my projects. all of my work is done outdoors along side my dinky tool shed, in the dirt, mud, or in the current case. Lots of snow!

Here is my entry in its current status as of tonight.

Here is the car the last time I had it halfass driving, in 09'

I know I am not the smartest on here, but what is the purpose of the shortened pan head? just to put the wheels back centered in the fender?

# 1. No need for caster shims as you can slightly piecut the shortened section to get all the caster you need.

#2. centers wheel in wheel well for better look

#3. moves wheels back away from headlight buckets allowing for taller tires on a lowered car. and eliminates rubbing issues when used along w/ narrowed beam.

Its a Millermatic 140 autoset

Working out of my yard means no 220v So i got the best welder i could run off 120v

It doesnt penetrate a big tack like a 220v but if you take your time it will burn 1/4" plate Using the "vertical, triangle" technique works really well on the thicker stuff.

heres the 1/4" thick gusset on the trimmed cradle of the the bagged 59' kombi im building for a friend.
