If you are a streetrodder that likes to build, fabricate, design and create when you put a rod together, or if you have ever wondered "HOW" someone else does the same job or a certain procedure, then welcome to Streetrod101.net. Our DVD is an exceptional tool used to teach, train, substitute and stimultate your mind to create that "one of a kind" project that you have been thinking about for years, or perhaps finish the project that you started some time ago. Either way we would love to help you get that procrastination monkey off your back and get started!

Our DVD is the place to get you going by taking you step by step through the backbone of any project - THE FRAME! From the frame we move through the setup and fabrication of everything needed to mount a coil-over rear suspension. Moving forward you will learn how to setup up the engine and transmission, the steering system, folllowed by a traditional front end. Along the way you will see how to fabricate virtually every piece and component you will need to hold this project together.

Tips, tricks, jigs and fixtures are shown that you can use or simply apply the concepts you learn to make your project enjoyable instead of frustrating - not to mention expensive - along with the satisfation that comes with DOING IT YOURSELF.


 

 
 

The Following Pictures are some of the examples of the Frame and Chassis construction that are shown in the video. All of the construction on this frame and chassis were done at home in my shop. The frame, brackets, tie rod, draglink, radius rods, panhard bars, shock brackets etc. were fabricated in house and no aftermarket components were purchased other than the stainless headlight mounts and stainless rod ends used for the radius rods on the outside of the chassis. These too could have been constructed in house from mild steel then chromed or painted.

The cars shown were all built using the same techniques and concepts shown in the video and these too were built at home. Construction of a frame and chassis is basically a matter of general knowledge of basic hand tools, a welder, a few power tools, and patience, as well as a strong desire to be creative. Any lathe work is minor and can be handled at a local machine shop at a reasonable price. Getting to know the machine shop instructor at the local high school, meeting someone that has one, and paying a small fee or trading labor, signing up for a class in machine shop at a local junior college, or better yet - purchasing one for yourself. This does not have to be an expensive lathe. The main requirement is that it needs to be able to take up to a one inch diameter piece of round stock.

Frame and Chassis construction is the first in a series of videos that are designed around the construction of a 1928 Ford pickup with a fiberglass body and a hand made metal bed which is very close to an original and was made in my shop from sheet steel.

The next video in the series will be the modifications that the fiberglass body underwent in order to incorporate a functional third door, extensively modified dash, construction of a dual brake pedal assembly, hand controls, a slide out seat, heater, a modified fiberglass top that is hinged to the rear of the body, along with pull switches and cruise control. The car was designed for a disabled friend to enable him to enjoy the sport of Street Rodding.

The third video in the series will be the construction of a Model A pickup bed that is made from sheet metal using a homemade roller, built from an old drive shaft and piece of pipe that will duplicate the bottom curve of the stock Model A pickup bed.

The videos are designed along a generic theme which will enable the information to be used in the construction of most hot rods. It should also trigger new ideas from you, the builder, to help with the other projects that are in the works or up-coming.
