    Hi everyone!

    Welcome to this exciting new section of the VFF for all modified Fords, from the Model T to the Y block era .
    This is where we can talk about and show our builds, and throw around our ideas.
    Everything from mild to wild is welcome here. Ratrods to Restorods, and everything in between.

    Here, we respect original
    sheet metal. So please, no showing or pictures of current top chopping, sectioning or butchering of any original Ford exterior sheet metal.
    If you have already done this or have acquired your car like this,
    you and your car are still welcome.

    Just PLEASE don't show us or tell us about your current sawzall skills.

    If you have to chop, then show us only after it is done.

    Acceptable body mods as an example are, firewall, dash, door locks, fitting a 32 grille to a Model A, different tail lights, lowering and/or raking of open car windshields,dechroming and/or shaving of door handles on a shoebox, etc.

    Mods to chassis, changes of engine, speed equipment, drivetrains, wheels, interiors, steering columns etc. are all welcome. This is what makes our hotrods unique!

    The Projects section is where you can show your
    projects that you are currently building or have built so others may get guidance and/or ideas.

    You can even start a project topic with a single part and a vision as to what it will be, and edit and add more as you progress.

    Please post your for sale and wanted items in the Modified Classifieds forum only.

    Have fun and remember, everyone likes pics!

      It will be interesting to see if this restriction makes sense for this section, given that most Ratrods and Restorods do have some metal slashing and bashing. But, regardless, thanks for adding this section, which I think will be very interesting when it catches on.

        Hi Corley,

        yes, lots of ratrods are chopped /sectioned/channeled, and if they are already done, then it is too late.

        All we ask here is, if you are currently doing the above mods to your car, just do not show us you doing it in the process.

        What is seen can't be unseen.

        Show us everything else of the building process but not the actual in process sawzall job.

        But even though we don't like nor condone "extensive" modifying of external sheetmetal, we will welcome your car into this community.

        A hotrodder is a builder of the whole car , not just a shiny painter, so
        we do not just want the car here, we also want his/her personality and
        input.

        Have fun.

        your roadster is real sweet.

        Only problem is, we cannot see it all.

        Hey Mitch , I want to thank you for all the Expert Advice on getting my A up and running. With out your passion for the VFF a lot of car guys would be missing out. I knew absolutely zero about these vehicles , and several years later I found myself helping and sharing my knowledge I inherited from VFF and its members. Truly a top choice service. Unfortunately for me , location for parts, service of engine/transmission components are non existent, funding a hobby by waiting sometimes for months isn't fun anymore....but...I am proud to drag my sorry ass over to VFF Modified section, no sheet metal changes , no chopping ...

              2nd Chance Tool Display Case Raffle!!
              by Mitch
              The lucky winner of the tool case raffle, Bobm90, had already purchased a display case from Jamey E some time ago, but entered the raffle anyway to support the VFF. And now he has generously decided to donate his prize back to the VFF!
              After some discussion, we have decided to raffle this custom case again, for 1/2 price! The proceeds from this second chance raffle will benefit the Model A

              Are all "indents" created equal?
              by Mickey
              Is it the indent on a late '31 coupe firewall the same shape as the indent on the Budd CCPU pictured on the left below?
              After closer examination the indent on my '31 coupe appears to be mis-shaped to fit a heater or something (picture on the right)....

              Installing Lower Coolant Pipe/Hoses
              by Jim/GA
              Hello, all!

              I am gathering information to write a short article for Model A owners that want to work on their car, guiding them on replacing the upper and lower radiator hoses. I want to go a bit beyond what Les has in his book. I would like the benefit of your experience, not just mine. Whatever I write, I will then go out into the shop and carefully follow my instructions to make sure...

              Technical Articles: by Larry Jenkins
              by Mitch
              With a tremendous amount of advice and encouragement from Mitch, I present a Series of older Articles I wrote pertaining to the restoration of the 1928 to 1931 Model A Fords. These articles span from 1976 to 1998

              This is also in recognition of those current VFF Members who asked to see my old Articles here on VFF after reading my opening statement when I joined the VFF. Thank you! Most

              60-A and 60-B (2-Window Fordors) Body Tags
              by Steve Plucker

              “Most Body Tags for the 60-A and 60-B were nailed to the wooden cross sill just below the front seat…Some were also nailed to the wooden side sill just below the bottom of the front right or left door.”

              Do you know where the first location came from? I’ve been telling people to look only on the wooden rail next to the front passenger’s right foot, so I would like to know if
