The title should say 32 Ford "SCALP'T" 

thats a good one yes :) hahahaha love that !!

the chrome left on the pics is stuff that would not come of after de-chroming i had this before and i know that after primer you wont see it ..

got the partsboxes out and started to look for usable parts to get the engine blown :)

started with ....

734980_248005745332343_489766624_n.jpg

then added the red plate ...

and the top pulley is actually one that was part of the system that belngs to this engine

i cut away the rest and used that on top

64293_248005855332332_204754781_n.jpg

then took ablower belt and drilled a hole in the center of the top pulley

164408_248005768665674_886145647_n.jpg

wich then slided over the top one i already fitted

150039_248005805332337_2067271043_n.jpg

then made a top plate and added a offenhauser dueal carb system , the valve covers on the engine are offenhauser as well , after paint i hope the offenhauser text is better visible

back plate

603083_248005865332331_911032617_n.jpg

found these brass stacks , they where on a iron string , dont know what they where

550144_248005958665655_1208162649_n.jpg

thnx guys :)

now that the flathead is pretty build , i can really dryfit and check dimensions started wotk on the undercarridge / chassis
and used the axle supports of the kit , dechromed them cut them up in pieces and placed them like this , bit fantasy-ish
never did this much chassis work , but i'm also still growing and inspired by loads of awsome build here i just keep getting more and more idea's
next time i really want to buy styrene and get what i really need to really be able to build it even better

734664_248095215323396_1023313802_n.jpg

so to hide the uglyness due to the angle styreen i closed the cross member behind the cab and made round openings for the axle supports

529040_248095358656715_334651388_n.jpg

then made a plate op styrene on the back side of the chassis , behind the axle

555393_248095225323395_329608882_n.jpg

cut up the gastank so the axle and springs would clear and kind of used that to finish it of looking decent

64982_248095745323343_1378400489_n.jpg

dryfit and the stance , this is the final ridehight

Nice clean work!  For future reference, if you want to be prototypicaly correct, the idler/tension pulley for the blower drive should go on the slack side of the belt i.e. the left side, when looking at the front of the engine (car engines rotate clockwise).

 

found these brass stacks , they where on a iron string , dont know what they where

 

They look like "ball ends" from guitar strings. :)

I kinda like it in a weird sort of way.

 

 Keep it up.

 

A local shop owner friend of mine cut up a real 1932 Ford coupe a couple years ago for a client.  He chopped it , recessed the frewall and moved the rear inner wheel wells in about an inch on each side.

Last I heard the car still wasn't done. Owner was planing a blown flat head Ford V8 with a 5 spd behind it

thnx guys , and about the pulley , then i have fitted it upside down ..
didnt think to check and did it because i could drill out the bigger pulley and slide it over the one i made on top on teh blower ...

but i love to hear these things because since i came here and saw a lot of great stuff .. i'm really trying to step it up on function and accurate stuff (as much as possible , sometimes a bit od cheating is nessecery to get your idea's transfered to styrene)


some progress

took 2 aircleaners , most people here recognise them from the revell kits

533607_248834485249469_939539731_n.jpg

and drilled them open in the center and used them as base for brake drums .. > wip

556610_248834501916134_1354532694_n.jpg

primered the engine

155049_248834465249471_2070358770_n.jpg


387057_248834641916120_1255924138_n.jpg

then started the front suspension , in the future i want to make them more acurate , lowered the front axle so changed the shocks and replaced the center leaf spring

59505_248834518582799_1184256409_n.jpg

the leafspring

482928_248834658582785_1663436332_n.jpg

then did the first total dryfit with everything in place

everything runs free radiator shell and radiator fit , steering rod clears , engine clears , drive train fits and clears
