Default 32 Ford - wood kit and top install - PICS Added 8/29/2010

Hey All,

Any pics, advice, instructions? I ordered a new wood kit for the top of my 32 4-door. I also have a new LB top kit I got last week.

Not sure if the wood comes with instructions or not. It's supposed to come this week.

The LB top kit has instructions but I am always open to advice.

Any tips are appreciated!
Thanks,
Vinnie

You can check out the build thread on my 32 sedan and see how I did it. I used the same kit you are using. If you have any questions while you are installing it PM me. I can tell you what I did. Not sure it was the "right " way but it worked.


Good Luck
Mike

Here are a few more pics. The wood actually went in fairly easy. We built the outer frame outside the car then just inserted it through the top. There is enough play to move it around and get it in. Here are some new pics:

Vinnie,

If you keep the chicken wire from grounding out on the body I have been told you can use it as a radio antenna. Anybody out there with first hand experience with this?

Mike/Vinnie,

Please post instead of using PM's as I am interested also.
