Bob That Sled!

1932 Ford rear end.

When some people have too much rear end, they get lipo-suction. When we have too much rear end, we cut it off!

Scott works on body. Rear panel removed.

First we chopped off the rear frame horns and kicked up the rear rails. Now we have to modify the body to match. This modification was done in concert with the modification of the rear wheel wells. It begins by cutting out the bottom half of the rear panel.

Modified panel installed.

The panel section that was removed was chopped about 3 -inches and re-installed.

The bottom of the rear panel will be rolled under using steel tubing cut in half.

Positions for new taillights from Bob Drake.

A new streamlined rear-end requires new taillights. The ones we'll use are 47-48 passenger / 42-47 Ford truck lights from Bob Drake.

We want to French these taillights, so we'll make the recesses on the bench and weld them into the new rear panel.

Looking Good!
