I decided to toss the coilovers and go with airbags.

The bags.

I added some braces to the frame. It still needs a trans mount, but I'm waiting on an engine so I don't know where it needs to go.

While I'm waiting on a motor, I decided to work on the interior. It's now cemented to the chassis floorpan, the start of the tunnel for the rear to tuck into, and a platform to mount the dash/console from a 39 Wagon Rod. The seats are also from the Wagon Rod. The dash fits the windshield contour perfectly.

While I had the Wagon Rod open, I played around with it for about 20 minutes, this is what I came up with so far.

A little more work on the interior.

Reworked the tunnel and added the accent piece for the rear tunnel.

I really didn't like the "Euro" look of the Wagon Rod dash, but the shape was something I thought I could work with. I made sides for the center section of the dash that flows back into a console out of .030 sheet and covered the top with .010. I'll laminate that with a second layer later.

In place with the seats, everything fits well.

I still can't believe how perfect a fit the dash is. I still have to cap the ends of the dash, but that will have to wait until the door panels are figured out.

Thanks guys.

A little more work on the interior, swapped out the Wagon Rod seats for the Mustang ones. Made a steering column with turn signal and tilt controls for the PE wheel.

Thanks. Your '41 Plymouth is looking good.

The Wagon Rod does come with some neat stuff, airide suspension with tubular A arms up front and a 4 link in the back, LS5 (I think ) engine, some cool looking modern seats, it's definitely a good donor kit.

Not from what I've seen of your work. If you have the patience and skill to do those wire wheels, you could easily tackle a job like this.

Now go cut that Woody up! B)
