Had the wood replaced on my 30 3 window coupe. This was done at local hot rod shop @ 60 per hour.
All my wood was rotten and the nails were falling out. Floor board base was replaced from cowl to rear of car. A & B pilars replaced, doors rehung, doors were reinforced with steel, dash braces and winshield mounts added,rumble seat redone in steel as was all the bracing for rear panels, along with additional frame bracing. They used 2x3 steel and some 1x1.
Inside was gutted when i got the car. so this was easy decision. A wood kit is over 5K, and you still need to install.
I am still grinding welds.
The body is now solid. no wiggle from rotted wood and nails backing out.
All in all, I think the body is better with the
steel rather then new wood
