  • Hawk body tells a story

    We have been welding on this car for a couple of months now and We now see what the big problem with this car was, the support that attaches to the firewall was in bad shape. It was broken off from the support area. I now see why the drivers door and it's frame support was broken away from the lower hinge support.We were surprized at the damage at the driver's side of this car, I am so lucky to have a parts car, We were able to tie in these critcal areas to make the car stable. I see why the car was passed around, the only way to fix it was to remove the motor and fenders, we noticed how easy it was to make the body twist by standing on the rocker. I think now everything is down hill. The previous owners did not want to go that far into this car, those repairs make the car solid. Things are moving along quickly! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...0/IMG_0208.jpg

    Well, the Hawk body is rather ordinary from an Engineering point of view, but real good-looking from a styling point of view.

      We were cleaning up this radiator bracket and noticed it wasen't quite right could not get the radiator to sit in it. Maybe we were doing something wrong or a part is missing? any thoughts!

          That might have to be a RBFH...

            With a heat wrench, you'd only need a BH.
