Michael sent these pictures of his 1936 Ford frame as he installed a set of our 1935-40 Ford boxing plates (which are still currently on sale!).
We have had quite a few questions about installing our Mustang II kit in cars that don’t lend themselves well to a conversion. Sometimes “modifying the frame rails” is necessary. What exactly do we mean by that?
I thought I’d put together some pictures that show a few frames that have been modified to accept a Mustang II crossmember. If you have any questions about your frame or any of our parts, please email or call toll-free: 1-888-648-2150.
If you’ve put our in something “weird”, please send us some pictures!
Grant Schwartz built a killer Model A frame using a bunch of Welder Series frame parts.
How to mount our sway bar to a round tube.
Terry just sent us an email with some pictures of how he used our frame curves on his '48 Chevy. I thought it was most worthy of being shared!
Well, the body is off and it's time to start welding up brackets and tabs that were just tacked in place this whole time.
Dear Welder Series…
I am building a Model A style frame and I am going to use manual brakes on it. Which master cylinder bracket kit and pedal should I use?
If you are using an automatic transmission, the WS13704 kit was designed for the Model ‘A’.
It is available ready-to-weld or welded.
Is this the frame that you got the frame curves for?
Thanks for looking at Welder Series, Ryan.
Dear Welder Series…
Great products, great videos and product info on YouTube.
Can you recommend which master mounting bracket and pedal to use for a
model A, and is there one available that has both the brake and clutch
Thanks for looking at our parts, Alan. Check out 20281. Any clutch and brake is very crowded in a Model ‘A’. We can swap the offset brake pedal for one with no offset. Then you can bend both pedals symmetrically to go around the steering column.
I hope we can help you with your project.

“Canuck” over on the HAMB sent me this information on a possible candidate for a brake pedal return spring. Here are the original dimensions of the spring (the one in the picture has been trimmed): OD = 1.655″, ID = 1.375″, Length = 3.575″, Wire Dia = .135″, 6 coils, Min length when coils bind = 2.768″, Compression = ~~ 22 lb.s/inch compression. Straight spring, no taper. This came off an ’89 Cadillac Fleetwood.
Thanks for keeping me in mind!
If you didn’t see my pedal return setup, here’s a picture:
Here’s a setup that Lowdown Hotrods made… it looks like they’ve used a tube threaded on to the booster plunger with a jam nut sandwiching an aluminum disc which holds the spring. You can always expect clean work from these guys! Check out their site for a whole bunch of project pictures.
Horton History #4 focuses on two hiboy roadsters built in the mid 80's.
The emergency brake handle mount is a neat little piece, but I don't think I explained how it attaches to the floor.
