Ok, I finally took some pictures today. The first one of the frame is when I tore it apart last fall. The second one is of the mods I had to do to the "X" member. The third one is the rear end and the fourth is the front axle after the POR-15. Fifth one is just some small parts. I forgot to take one of the frame with the POR-15 applied and I'm too lazy to go back out and take it. I'll take a finished frame shot after I get it put back together.

A little update on the coupe. I went and got the '36 today. First pic is the finished frame, second I'm ready to roll. The '67 made the trip, no problem. The third one is after Ron and his wife, and I, put the body back on the frame and a couple when I got it home..

Re: The '36 Ford Coupe Rebuild

Leon, I have to admit. I really have looked up to you. Your not just a dang fine gentleman, but you have great taste! what a cool ride and a great story behind it! Pat is a lucky lady indeed, or is that the other way around?!

I am officially subscribing to this thread. I salute you, sir.

Thanks Doug. I think It's the other way around... Behind every successful man there is a woman.... pushing, pushing, pushing.. Seriously, I'm pretty lucky to have a really understanding wife. I would have driven any normal woman crazy by now.

I didn't even go myself. I'm a tight a$$ so I wouldn't spend the 13 bucks to get in.... I'll wait for the cruise nights.
