On one of my friends…
12 years, 5200 hours (conservatively), and a VERY patient wife…
He designed and fabricated the dash and center console, plus the wiring harness, and that was just the start of it!
And a show winner the first time out!!!
He literally did EVERYTHING from design and assembly including body work, engine design and assembly, drive line suspension, interior, frame, brakes, AC, exhaust, fuel, electrical, cooling, stereo, etc.
1933 3 window coupe 3” chopped and frenched with suicide doors, Ford 351W 430 HP 430 FTLbs, Tremec 3550 manual, leather interior and trunk, chromed grille, mirrors, headlights, taillights, and windshield surround, AC, PB, Manual steering, Power Windows, Power trunk, wipers, 8 speaker stereo, 4 wheel disc brakes, 4 link 9” rear 3.73 ratio
Yes, he is a ‘tad’ anal retentive, but it paid off… Proud of you Brian, and Kim for putting up with your ‘obsession’ !!!
