Default new project started tribute hot rod

Christmas present to myself 3.1 gte race cam fitted re-board 17k on the clock with all the mots to back up the mileage .seems a shame to give it the chop but it will make a nice 32 ford pick up rod when its finished

Your SE5 Scimitar's wheelbase is 5" shorter than the SE6 I have on ebay, but I am sure that won't be a problem for your grinder!

Cutting doors in it isn't too much of an issue as we have a 32 coupe mould with the same length of door.

Default body gone

I need to do some repairs on the chassis so stretching it will not be a problem, I fancy going old school on the pickup bed and building one from wood add that to a 32 close cab with a roof should look sweet. need to find a good spares shop for brakes and poly bush kit if anyone knows of please pass it on.

Chris if you can give me a price for a full 32 close cab with doors bonnet a grill etc would be good cheers

engine hoist on order if not a bit late the chases is now well striped jet washed and mostly degreased going to start welding tomoz and get it repainted then rebuild the brakes by that time my kit should not be far away

Err....hate to be a killjoy....but lopping off the outriggers and making new ones to taper to the car, means the chassis has been altered, which means....IVA....
Just sayin'....

of course like all good things soon as its changed over on the documents small modifications could take place but I quite like the running board look

Could standard outriggers be hidden with running boards...maybe...?!
Sorry to put a damper on it, but hate to see you build it then have problems getting it legally on the road...
PS, hope you do build it, i love hot rods..

My G46 build was on a SE5 but seems to have disappeared. It had details of the bushing kits and brake kits I used.

Check if yours is an SE5 or a SE5A as the suspension bushes are different. Also the starter motors are different as one uses pull engagement and one uses push. Unfortunately I can't remember which used which.

These guys are good for spares : http://www.grahamwalkerparts.co.uk/S...r%20re-man.htm

Have fun

ye wish it was mine unfortunately its just to show how I plan to cover the outriggers. the kit I have got on order from chris is pretty much the same and will look the same. old school all the way no mud guards and fancy a dab of rust effect paint. doing a full rebuild on the chassis running gear so it will be all new ready to run shame about the budget lol
