Just when you thought I gave up, I spent another hour on it. The top half of the firewall is fitted into place now. Now I need to do the bottom half. I'm thinking ~6 more hours of work before I weld it all in.

Well, I finally started to weld it in place last night, though I'm far from done.

Here is what it looks like as of 9:30 pm 3/27/14. You'll notice it looks nearly identical to the last picture I showed you, except dustier. This time though, it won't come out again



Now maybe you are saying to yourself, "Jeremy, that doesn't look like much work, why did it take so long?" Well, the "new" firewall was crustier than a bus station, and the firewall is two layers thick. It was also full of compound curves, so it is sort of a complicated item to recreate and not have it look like amateur hour.

I can't decide whether I will keep it forever because I'm attached to it, or dump it as soon as it is together. Maybe it needs an LSx engine? Who knows what tomorrow might bring!

I need to see your new one stat!

99% welded and ground smooth. Just a few small areas to finish before I can install the cowl, and POR-15 everything.

Test fitted the original cowl metal since it's still too damn cold to POR-15.

Thanks guys! I hope to have the engine bay sprayed in the next week or so. Once that happens, assembly of the car should go pretty quickly (I hope!). Currently I am planning on selling it when I get it done (crazy I know - but I'm itching to build something from the 1920's). I know I will be losing money (and massive amounts of time) on this project, but it is/has been a really fun challenge for me. I have TIG welded just about everything so far, and gotten much better at TIG'ing because of it. Luckily, I can keep the education forever, and in the process, I will hopefully have put a rare car back on the road again. Once complete, this car should be really, really clean. I'll keep the pictures coming as it progresses!

Thanks! I appreciate it! And now I have a little more for you!

This past weekend:

I cut the Left Hand Drive subframe up (it was totally rotted out on the bottom).



I test fit the stuff on the RHD one after cutting big holes in it.



Then I fit the pieces in real proper-like.



Then I TIG welding the rascal all together.

Quick update: The subframe is fully welded now, including the steering rack bracket on the bottom. Now I just need to paint the whole thing and then I can finally have this car on 4 wheels again!

Well, you are in luck, because the car is on 4 wheels again! Sadly, I don't have a picture yet. Maybe this weekend. We'll see.

Engine bay pic



Also - I just installed a bunch more under dash junk tonight, and I sandblasted, primed, and painted a bunch of random rusty brackets that will never ever be seen once they are installed. I am not a smart man.
