The initial hard part of the job is over. In the last issue, we showed you the process of creating the transmission cover for a T5 in a Flathead-powered '33 coupe (along with ways to make that popular engine/transmission matchup work). It takes a lot of skillful sheetmetal manipulation to create those complex tapers from a single piece of 16-gauge, and Ben Vasquez at Stone's Metal Shop knocked it out in a day. We won't say he made it look easy. He just made it look perfect.

This month, we're showing you the rest of the job as the under-dash floorboards are constructed and grafted to the tunnel.
