Couple of questions:
I'm curious. Many chassis' that I've seen in 50's-era Hawks have looked pretty fragile. Is anyone manufacturing new replacement chassis' that outwardly look the same but are stronger for Studebakers? Would there even be a market for them?
What's with powder coating? I can't remember anyone doing it when I was in the automotive trade 40 years ago, now it seems to be all the rage. Is it considered "appropriate" when restoring a classic car from scratch?
