Custom Interiors by Vintage Metal

Here's a change from the typical work that we do. A customer was having his car done by a local upholstery shop but ran into issues with them so we were asked if we could pick up the 'torch' and complete the car for a large show upcomming this weekend.

This is a 32 Ford Cabriolet, body made in New Zealand. Its a smooth looking street rod with some early satin flair. Its carries a great stance and the interior when finish will set above the rest in my humble opinion.

The door panels, rear panels and carpeting are being completed by Vintage Metal.

Keep an eye out for the finish shots of the car!





1949 Shoebox Ford

More pictures of the 1949 Ford Shoebox project. One of the most important tasks on this car is to rework the chop that was done previously. In the process, there were alot of areas that showed alot of bad stress and poor welding. Now, don't get me wrong, everyone has 'their way' of doing things, but in our view and experience, there are certain ways Vintage Metal does them different from the rest.

The A pillars needed a serious re-work to get the front roof alignment correct. This includes the metal affected on the inside header of the car.

From the other pictures, you notice the obvious; Early 50's styled french headlights and frenched taillights. The rear quarter peak moulding has been removed for a more smooth but slight peak to finish off the rear in its flow towards the wheels.

Don't be bashful, if you have 'better' ideas, please feel free to comment...

How a Differential Works!

I have seen this video many years ago and was reminded again about it.

If you dont understand how the rear end in your car works, after this, you will be fully educated on the basics...and maybe be able to take it further to work out any bugs; if there are any!

Enjoy!

Roof Repair has started and the Frenching of the Tail lights the way they did back in the day.

Lead may be used on taillight portion to achieve proper shape.
