Friday’s Tech

I am posting some pictures of my 33 roadster frame that I built in my garage without using a jig. I think it came out pretty nice.

This morning I visited a shop with a friend of mine to see about having my 32 frame done in a jig. I have always used tubing through the body bolt holes to hold the frame in shape, but I think I will let the pros do this one. I will post some pictures next Friday of the Deuce frame.

I enjoy the fabrication of the chassis more than any process of building a Hot Rod. I guess it is my engineering background, but super fabrication and welding are really works of art to me. I don’t possess that talent yet, but I am trying hard to learn. Old age doesn’t do much for a steady hand and good eye hand coordination. It sure is fun to try!

Have a good weekend. Lots going on….Early Times Picnic, Road Kings, Long Beach….LA is the best.

  1. Have you ever heard of second life (sl for short). It is basically a video game where you can do anything you want. Second life is literally my second life (pun intended lol). If you want to see more you can see these Second Life articles and blogs

  2. Thanks for the tips on credit repair on all of this blog. What I would advice people is to give up the mentality that they can buy now and pay later. As a society we tend to do this for many things. This includes vacations, furniture, and items we want. However, you need to separate your wants from all the needs. While you are working to improve your credit score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to save money or you can go to second hand stores instead of expensive department stores for clothing.
