Our good friend Jerry upholstered the top for a killer old school tuck and roll look. Thanks for watching! Be sure to like and subscribe to keep track of all of our builds and adventures.

Hey Matt it's matt here in nashville TN. I'm building my first AV8 and need some serious advise..I'm getting all my parts together, so far I've got.. I've got a 31 roadster ( original car). I bought a 40 ford coupe and pulled the flathead v8 and trans. But then I sold the rest of the 40. Now I'm hearing that I should have used the 40 front axle and brakes and rear end out if it. So I can buy another 40 ford sedan for 1500 bucks. It's a junk heap but has complete drive train and front/ rear end with beakes. Should I but it for the front end and rear with brakes? What about steering? Should I put the 40 steering in it? What's your opinion? Thanks.
I like coupes better the roadsters
Great work as always

Looks great.

Great work on the car, ditto on the music being too loud. The intro music on all of the videos is quite louder than the dialogue.
Very nice showing the effort needed. My compliant is why does the music need to be so loud? 🙂
Caleb Taylor
nice coupe done the right way

How to Make Trunk Panel Ford How to Make a Metal Roof Insert 2 days ago   28:46

In the last episode we finished up making the braces inside the trunk area, which hasn't been a whole lot of fun. Today we are going to move along to a fun project where we are actually making patterns and shaping some metal, instead of making small brackets from scratch.  The first panel we are going to attack is the panel that is located below the trunk lid.  The panel is beyond any sort of repair that would be any quicker then building a whole new piece. Follow along for a step by step instruction on how to build one. Thanks for watching! Be sure to like and subscribe to keep track of all of our builds and adventures.
