When our client's 1931 Ford 5 Window Model A arrived, Steve quickly realized that the amount of body work the car had received over the last 83 years was extensive. In classic Rat Rod fashion, Steve decided to enhance the flaws rather than hide them. To start, the doors were straightened and the interior of the car was completely rebuilt. The floor, seats, steering column, transmission tunnel, roll cage, and dashboard were custom made to fit the vehicle. All new wiring, brake lines, brakes, fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel lines, and throttle linkage were installed. The grill, headlights, and hood also required a great deal of fabrication. The body was dimple dyed, speed blisters were added, and - to complete the Salt Flats theme - an all-metal finish was applied. The final touch was the number 13 - a special request from our client. Every inch of this car was treated in one way or another with the Welder Up touch.
