    replicaparts GEN 2 build thread

    I am going to start a build thread chronicling the build of my first GEN 2 HotRod. I will do my best to keep up with it.

    I picked up the kit for a customer on Feb 2 2019 The car will feature just ab out every option that FFR has including the following
    IRS
    Early chevy install kit
    Chrome tilt clumn
    Wilwood brakes
    hard top
    soft top
    full fenders
    A/C and heat
    Leather seats
    Coupe gauges

    I am sure there are a few I'm missing.

    Here are a few pics of the pickup








    I managed to fit all these boxes in my SUV and a few tucked in the kit and on the trailer.
    Will need to go back for the full fender kit.








    Here are a few pics of it at my shop and being off loaded.

    I started going through the back order list and doing inventory. The back order list is very short and didn't contain anything that will slow me down right now.
    I started this afternoon by assembling the shocks. I did both front and rear. Nothing unusual or different here.



    After they were packed away I replaced the wheel studs in the rear IRS hubs. I knocked out the old ones with a large hammer. Used a hydraulic press to install the new ones. Pretty straight forward.





    Hope to really get going on it Monday morning.

    Mike,

    That roadster behind it is really dusty. Could you run a rag over it for me?

    In those pics you can really see the added Radius they put into the doors. Then I see some small changes to the frame. Should be a very nice build. Good luck.

    When you get a chance can you take a photo of your upper rear shock mounts. I have chassis #1121. With IRS and I have four different mounting points. Not sure which ones to use. Thanks

    Use the wide ones that are directly above the lower mount. FFR has been shipping the wrong bolts though. You will need to buy longer ones. Pretty sure they are 1/2-13x4.

    Thank you for the quick response, that’s what I thought. And yes, The bolts were wrong that’s what caused me to think about it. I guess I’ll have to Get some different spacers also.
    Thanks
