Hand Fabricated 1930 Model A roadster pickup. (just beginning)

Here is the start of the newest project. This will be almost all hand fabricated from steel. Including body, suspension, frame, dash, and whatever else suits the theme.

If you have any questions or opinions, i would love to hear them.

Cool, cool, cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My kind of build with tons of fabricating.  Just wondering why you are "pie cutting" your square tube rather than using your Model 32?  Isn't that a ton more work with all the welding and grinding.  Keep us posted with all the pictures.  Thanks, Rhys.

I have to admit, I haven't broken down and bought square dies for the bender, yes it's a lot more work, but I am also teaching my apprentice welding and smoothing of steel.
Thanks for the comments and I'll try to post each step as I do it.
If anyone has questions, feel free to ask or stop by.

That's pretty cool! When I saw the thread title and your avatar, I was thinking you were building a table top version - not the real deal!!! impressive!

are you going to be adding the (i think its called) the belt line molding or 'bead rolled raised area' later or a you going for a completely smooth appearance? not suggesting one way or the other just wondering what your doing  (the 'bead' is at the top of the verticle panel running horizontally just before it goes over the gas tank).

Nice job Ryan!

Looks like you've got a great start on this build. Keep the photos coming.
