      Hi all,
      I have decided to build a resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build 3 window as a chopped, channeled and sectioned Rat Rod. The plan is to build it with a 5 inch section, 6 inch channel and an 8 inch mail slot chop. She will be running in the weeds.
      The power will be a flat head with trips (subject to change). Being built as a 50’s rod I don’t think I will box the frame. I can’t remember but I don’t think it was done back then by the back yard hot 32 Three Window Rat Rod build rod builder. Tires and Wheels will be wide white walls with red wire wheels and moon centers. Interior is going to be simple wood floor blanket covered seat or aluminum aircraft seats. I may open the door on the driver side not set yet. The plan as of now is to paint her in black Hot 32 Three Window Rat Rod build Rod Primer 32 Three Window Rat Rod build with a pin-up girl painted on the trunk or on the doors, that part is way down the road. This is the plan and that means if you have a plan you have something to change.
      So here are the first three pictures in the build.

    Dave, I know you are not "the Boss", but, on this tutorial to me you are! Nice top chop, too. I love that rear window. Rick..a suggestion to align the front posts...section the door vertically and pull the cowl section backwards. I don't know if that is too much work, but, it seems more natural.

    Rick, I will align the post as I did when chopping my 5 window except all space will be made up in the front. The cutting of the cowl seems to add more work to me but still a viable solution.

    Dave, I see the roof cuts. I did'nt think of that. I did section a roof on a 49 Merc from AMT 32 Three Window Rat Rod build They showed how to do it in the kit booklet. The sectioning of the door vertically still seems less work to me. Since the lower cowl section is loose you would only be sliding it back a bit when you put the door pieces back together. You would not be adding to the roof formation. I watch your work on this eagerly to help me with mine. I love the red 5 window. I think I remember seeing it in the gallery. Awesome....and thanks again for more insight!

    Yup, the Show & Shine is the end of May Dave. Even if your car's aren't finished, they'll be welcome, including that old red one.

    Wow, I'm really loving what you guys did with the 3 window. We're really talking in da weeds here. Talk about your traditional rods.

    This is very interesting just a few shots of the roof area. I filled in the cut section with some plastic and put on some Glazing Putty 32 Three Window Rat Rod build . Now the sanding 32 Three Window Rat Rod build and contouring.

    I think I've seen that rod somewhere too. I also saw one like that but it had Olds Fiesta hubcaps and it looked great.

    Thanks Rick, I will be gone for a few days anyway as I'm heading out on the first fishing trip of 2008.
