      PROJECT ONDSKAN 800HP 1935 Ford Truck

      Well since I have a couple of builds going on at the same time I decided to separate them before I started posting more pics. Here we go people. I had 57 Bel Air chassis with c4 corvette air ride suspension from a previous build that didn't come to fruition. I wasn't sure what to do with the frame until I came across this rat rod near the arizona/california border.

      I don't think I have ever seen hairpins on the rear end like that, I bet it would ride rough :(

      It didn't seem crazy to think I could make the Bel Air chassis work with a few simple modifications so off to the fabricators it went. Not just any Fabricators but the builder and caretaker and mechanic for "THE BIG RED CAMARO" Dave Ward...Precision Welding..Rialto CA. Quickly Dave and Rick got to work. Dave knocked out the roll cage in just a couple of days, I was bummed I didn't get more pics of it before we put the body back on.

      Rick started to do some body work, he built the new firewall I designed and suicide doors when he found about a half inch of bondo on doors. rRealized we needed to send the cab to the blasters.

      We got the cab back from the blasters and you could see that the previous owner had only spot welded the chop job and then just added bondo over it..... boy was i glad we decided to blast it. I had Rick make the side molding around the front of the firewall into a scallop type tooth.....i love it looks amazing....He also fixed and finished the chop job the right way....as well as notching and extending the body along the frame..love the doors and rockers he did!!!..Dave made the tunnel....oh yah the body is welded to the frame...no was turning back after that...Haha

      I know it looks cramped but I am 6 foot and I"m all legs so we measured the length to fit me perfect....when I post the custom seats we made it will make a bit more sense

      I wanted floating bucket seats. Dave and I decided that the best way was to have them mounted was directly into the roll cage.

      When trying to figure out how to build the seats I explained to Dave that I wanted to do a chopper style pan...Dave was a little stumped but when I found these old style tractor seats...Dave made em fit pretty damn well....you can see how the seats float so happy with Dave pulling this design of for me...nephews loved a sneak peek.... I had not shared any of it with my family or friends until this day... I know that the seats may look uncomfortable but I have to tell you they are actually very comfortable...can't wait to see and sit in them when they have been covered by Duane Ballard from DBcustomleather.com His work is insane!!!! A real Artists check him out.

      I built a mock up of what I wanted the radiator shroud to look like...came back 4 days later and Dave had it built and started on molding the frame rails into the shroud.
