      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痴 rod I don稚 think I will box the frame. I can稚 remember but I don稚 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.

    This is the type of build we love to see Willys. Chopping up the body will make a great tutorial so please keep the photos and build techniques comming. We'll be looking forward to seeing it at the Show and Shine.

    Looks like we've got something really good going on here. I'll definitely be following this one, Dave. Your plan sounds really solid.

    I'm going to love this one, you are right, the rails weren't boxed...just gussets wherever it looked like there might be stress or flex. Split bones and a lot of backyard ingenuity. Puter's, Billet and aftermarket parts.......huh? Eyeball engineering at it's finest.

    Hi Willys,
    I see you are starting with the eDeuce. I am glad you are sectioning the body, too. I want to do that to Dan's chopped 3 window. I have show rod plans, but, can't wait to see what you do to section it. Eyes wide open here. I have been drawing all over the body to see what I want to do. It looks like a map now. Thanks for starting this! I have big channeling plans too, but, the top is staying where it is at.

    Hello again,
    Last night I did more sectioning. The other side was cut off and I removed 5/8 of an inch (= 5 inches) from both sections. I used a #11 blade to scribe along the line and slowly moved along the line time after time. After many scribes I used a razor saw and used the inside end to drag along the line till it cut thru the resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build . Cuts went quicker than using the # 11 blade.
    Next I cut along the rear doors fit half’s in place cut off extra to align the door jam. Then I re-cut the door jams so when you put the parts back together the seam lined up. After all the cutting I taped the pieces in place.
    The picture shows this and in the last few pictures you can see the difference with 5 inch sectioning.
    The next step will be to chop the top.

    Thats the best way to show everyone how your doing it. Looks great......

    If you get the time might I suggest a personal album in the gallery then upload all your build pics there for easy future reference.

    That's a masterful job of sectioning, Dave. When it's all taped together, it looks like it was originally made that way. This really is coming out well. Post more pics by all means.

    Dan I have a question can the pictures in the gallery be edited to add text or just when you down load them?

    Theres no text editor on the photo upload. You can add a description to the photo allot like in a post, you can add a title and keywords for easy searching but no text overlay.

    I followed "the Boss" Willys41's tutorial on sectioning the Deuce body tonight and this is where I ended up. I am doing Dan's chopped Deuce...the eDeuce setting next to it in the pic to see how radical it has been changed. Thanks Boss!!!!!. I bought this aluminum firewall and accessories on eBay for this or the eDeuce build. I picked up the photo etched grille detail set from the Model Car Garage, too. Not sure if it will work with the sectioned build....have to wait and see. I have a resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build '34 grille to try out, too. I'm not going to copy kat" W41....from here on out it is custom show rod. Hemi, 4-link rear end, wide rubber in the back in tubs....I love 8scale! Thanks Dave, Your info allowed me to take my deuce to it's next stage of build. Before your pics I was not sure what to do to section the body. Rick

    Hi all,
    The next step has been done. I took the can opener to the top and chopped it 6 inches ( セ of an inch). I decided to cut the front section of the roof at the top panel seam instead of the rear section because of the thinness of the resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build . As you can see there is a hole in the rear roof on the right side. Resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build with all the thin and thick areas does pose issues. The eDeuce bodies also have lots of air pin holes that always seem to be in the right lower door section. Next I will use a section of the 5/8 of an inch resin 32 Three Window Rat Rod build that I took off the side to fill in the added section on the roof to align the door posts.

    Rick I’m glad that this has helped you with your build. Rick please don't confuse me with the "Boss" I'm just a model builder that loves to cut and build the cars I could never have. I will cut out the firewall from the cowl and either build a firewall or use the stock one from the kit with modification for the channeling.
