wingedexpress, that is just nuts - you cannot do that!
You must have used CGI to fool us all into believing what our minds know is just an elaborate trick!
It must be, 'cause I seen it but I still don't believe it!
I tips me hat to ya, I do. (Mostly because I just feel so inadequate now - ho hum).
NEXT!!!!!!

WOW nice job, both on the door and the tech! Not only did you make your door, but after reading your tech thread, I wouldn't hesitate to try making one myself. Thanks!

You the man and you have my vote! I wish I'd have just built a pair of new ones before I redid my trashed beaters. They did turn out OK though.


Great work!!!!!

Good call. You know your Model "A"s! The windshield chop is 4 1/2", which makes the door chop 7/3/8" to line up. The most critical part of chopping a '28 is splitting the top of the window frame so your glass will work properly. I'm putting a sedan style back window in, (hammer formed as you have done), to carry the upper body lines around the back. This is being put into a flat panel instead of the stocker. There wasn't much to work with on my body, most people with a brain would have just scrapped it, so I don't feel bad violating the rules. The hardest part is going to be getting the raised panels behind the doors to line up with the windows.

I'm following your thread for pointers.

great work on the door.
Did you do anything on the inside for Rust protection before adding the door skin?

Thanks for the votes .I think you could do two almost as fast as one because you could do your measuring,layout,set up your tools and do each step to both doors at the same time.
