Saturday progress...

tapped out 4" to be removed from A-pillar:



with the a-pillars complete, decided to shave the wipers and washer hole, along with a bolt that was in the center of the top firewall. blended the welds a bit too:



cut out the rear package tray. moved it forward 6" then another inch for a total of 7. after analyzing countless profile pics of Carson / Gaylord top shoeboxes i think this will put the new roof where it needs to be:

I like the fact that you have the patience to fix it right BEFORE cutting onn the roof. Some guys just whack it off and THEN fix the rockers, floor, bracing, and wonder why it lines up like shit. Lookin good. And lookin forward to the great outcome. Good work.

Thanks for those back bumper photos! I really like how you handled exiting the exhaust through those bullets. I'm planning something similar, and this really shows how to do it.

Nice work.

I am not a custom guy, but I really like the work your doing with this one. That rear bumper with the exhaust through the tips is just flat bitchin', and your moving the package tray forward is something that most that do this sort of thing don't bother with. I can't wait to see what you do with the top of the windshield frame to finish this beast out. You sir "get it"!

thank you all!

Sunday progress...

not too much to show for today, took the Buick out for a nice cruise with my pal. then once he headed off i stuck to the shop and pushed forward on the package tray work.

started off by making a paper template:



followed by splitting it into 2 and making them out of 18 gauge, worked one side at a time:



then worked the driver side:



in the end the 7" gap is filled. everything lined up nicely and its all tacked in place:

after the acid bath, the carb got cleaned, detailed and rebuilt:



hoped in my shop truck this morning and drove North for a good 2 hours, what for? Vert doors!



got back to the shop and placed them on the car, they will need some adjusting to look at home but they are worth the effort.

Man, what a score on the 49? convert doors

I've been following this thread thinking that if I did one, I'd want conv doors.


I also am getting interested in shoeboxes... get this story..

When I was a teen in the 60s, my car friends and I would see a 50 2dr sticking out of a shed at a local farm. Reputed to be low miles. The old dude would never answer the door. By the mid 70s, the car and buildings were gone...

A few days ago I was working at a woman's house near there. She was complaining about her 55 yr old brother leaving cars behind when he moved overseas 25+ years ago....she then said; " he even saved our uncles old Ford" , "do you want to see it?".....

Well, sad to say it's rotting into the dirt in a makeshift open lean-to. It took me 5 minutes with PB blaster to get the door open to read the mileage.... 23,780 miles...one owner, 1969 tags on the car..
