  1. LINK TO BUY in the video and description above, SUBSCRIBE for future how-to videos as Matt continues building his ’32 Ford.

  2. when adding the bungs to the frame, you could get your bolt thread a normal nut then a washer then your bung to make sure you get a perfectly flat level with the frame and would take out some of the guess work

  3. Please continue this series!

  4. Very cool!

  5. Curious as to how you decided which type welder to use at each place. I understand using the tig on the frame rounded nuts but why did you use a tig on the cross channels instead of the mig? What was the advantage here?
    Thanks for the videos.

  6. Great video! Thanks for the tips.. love the music too! 🙂
