        I straightened up the distortion and left a small edge around the frame. Let me know if you want the original frame in the picture cropped off. We can do some enhancing but I'd leave it alone. PM me Bill, Mitch. filedata/fetch?id=30863&d=1562194032&type=thumb

            Frame Sag
            by davew
            I checked the chassis section and could not find any information on this. If you have determined that your frame has suffered this fate how is it best fixed? Do you have to take the body off or can it be done with the body on? I have looked at the Les Andrews book. Just wondering what the thoughts were on this site. Thanks, David

            Sagging frame questions
            by Dan Kurth
            I have two frames that need to be straightened, one is down about 3/16" and the other about 1/2". I took the front axle off the first one I'm going to try, and plan to leave the rear attached to hold the back down. I have a sawhorse under the frame under the engine mounts, and I'll hang some weights on the frame horns. So, in heating the frame, how hot should I get it and how big of an area...

            Define Frame-off Restoration
            by newshirt
            Why is it called "frame-off restoration"? I don't understand how a frame can be taken off, or what it is taken off of. The wheels, yes. The body, yes. But not the frame. It can't be taken off of anything.

            Can anyone explain where this term came from? And why it is used? I understand the meaning behind it, but not the choice of words.

            Shouldn't it be "body-off...

            I've heard "just buy a repo", so what's a good repo ? I would like to try to restore a "fair", but has a rusty frame. I know it wouldn't be worth my time, but has anyone done this with success ? Any advice or pictures would be welcome. pAAt

            'A' Frame
            by KB9JLO
            If for whatever reason a person was going to build a Model A, piece by piece what would you look for in a frame, front and back axle? Obviously not going for perfection, just a good driver......

            28 windshield frame
            by pAAt
            I sandblasted the "Great" looking window frame and took it to my painter. He painted it and left it to my discretion, if I wanted more done ? More definitely, but decided to take it to Brent's first for more options. I may leave it as is, because a friend painted it, and look for a better one in the future.

            Frame sag?
            by Bill G
            This is not scientific by any means, but I am curious as to what acceptable frame sag would be. When placing a level across the driver's side frame rail. I can see a bit of light through the gap. The location is right at the point where the back of the cowl would meet the front of the body. Using a feeler gauge, a .020 will fit through, but a .025 won't. To me, this appears minimal. Comments?
