The Jalopy Journal
Haven't been able to really work on the car lately. But got a free minute tonight to slap it together.
[ATTACH] tearing apart the 38 banjo I got. Pinion bearings are froze up but all in all it looks good. Does anyone know what other years had the...
Got my other quarter today. [ATTACH][ATTACH]
The little tail panel that goes below the trunk should be here soon. Need to make a couple patch...
No thanks. Just want the parts to look right.

And that's what I'm trying not to do.
So I'm trying to be as correct as possible and was wondering what an a roadster built in the late 40s-55 would have looked like. Like what...
Got the quarter in place. [ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]
Yeah it was. The car was dudes yard art for the past 15 years. He said Dracula has been there for the last 5 years. So he said it had to stay.
Couple more pieces to this puzzle thanks to hamber wild bill I now have my gas tank and passenger quarter panel. [ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]
Awesome. My quarters are coming in the mail Friday. So I need to kinda line everything up
Oh I forgot. From the peak of the wheel well arch to the other peak would be awesome too. Thanks
Can someone please get me the measurements of their trunk opening on a 28-9 coupe. From corner to corner in an X and from top filler piece to the...

Think I would be better off having the axle in the pictures dropped or getting something else?
The plan is for them to go under my model a sport coupe.
I was told the front end was out of a 39. The spindles are the round backs. From what I understand I can't use 36 drums with 40 backing plates....
And let me know on that door too bill.
Few more pics as I beat up on the body a little. [ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]
And yes I made vroom vroom noises.
It'll be a coupster. Dreaming of 32 rails but more than likely an A frame and if I can find it I'll have it on a wide 5 set up with a heavy...
If the engine has a bit of angle back and to one side it could explain the one cylinder fouling if u have a drip.
Yeah I work for Camel Towing. My boss is on here too.
And it's on 6 stands now not just three.
The guy I got the body from told me I had to keep ol blackula in it till I took its place.
Here's my rough start. [ATTACH][ATTACH]
