Iron Trap has got all kinds of great projects, but this ’32 Ford Roadster is going to be something. It’s weird to see them getting new parts for a car like this, but it is the right choice to make this car as “original” as possible. Check out the two videos below that show how this project is getting started and then follow along as we’ll bring you regular updates.
While driving home from Michigan earlier this summer Matt and Steve stopped at Brookville Roadster for some parts for the DeLorean roadster. Today Matt is going to be using the roadsters frame as a fixture for the replacement subrails and floors. First step is to bolt down the subrails and weld in the cross braces. Once the subrails are fitted to the frame, Matt works on fitting the floor pans. To attach the floor pans Matt drills holes to plug weld around the edges. In the next video Matt will be pulling the body down from storage and start cutting out the old rotten floors!!
In the last video on the DeLorean Roadster Matt got the floors and subrails welded together, now its time to bring the body down to the shop. Matt and Steve drag the body back down to the shop and use the lift to pick the body off of the body cart. One the body is hanging in the air Matt gets to work cutting out of the old floor and subrails, but while cutting he caught the cotton in the door in fire!! Once the fire is under control Matt finishes up cutting out the floors and finishes up removing the old sound deadening added to the inside of the body. Off camera Matt is going to clean off the rest of the sound deadening to prep for welding the body to the new subrails!!
