It’s all good, it seems to falling into place so to speak.
There’s no rush, especially with the flu.
I am thinking of using Cyprus as it strong and termite proof.
Any extra information or images are greatly appreciated as I have been unable to find any detailed close up images of the roof bow.

That’s a very good point. Is this what you mean ?
It’s finally ready for trial fitting and final trimming.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] That’s interesting, I have managed to shape this as a single piece. It’s just pine but once completed I will be using it as a...
Thank you for those measurements, that will really speed the process along, I will post of some photos of the pieces when I get them made up.
Thanks for the help, this is the piece I need the measurements from. I am not worried about the slight radius, just the thickness.
It’s looking increasingly like I will have to estimate the dimensions for these pieces.
I have already made up contour gauges for the piece...
I need measurements of the thickness of the timber, especially the rear panel that the fabric tacks into. Also the overall dimensions of...

I don’t own any 35 stuff, but plenty of Model A stuff including a 28 Pheaton and 29 Cabriolet. And the Cabriolet definitely has longer doors....
That’s a highly impressive truck, it takes the expression between a rock and hard place to another level. Not sure how you would drag that out of...

It’s a 29, different shape to the 30 so it won’t match, but thanks for the offer.
That’s good to know, I have three tulip panels to work from.
The other measurement I need is the inside flange that attaches to the centre window panel.[ATTACH]
For the last few years, I have been collecting panels to put a 1929 Model A Coupe together.
Around Christmas time I was able to get a...
It looks pretty straight foreword. It all comes down to the patterns you make. Get some magnets and craft sheet sized cardboard, place the...
Thanks for the fresh measurements, it’s really pushing me along to get this underway. I made up a paper pattern about a week ago and finished...
Here are some samples. The first one is a 30 Pickup Cab I am reproducing.
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] I have done both, had them machined locally and used existing ones. By far the best combination I have ever used is a set of...
