Really good work there Travis, making big progress .
Nice Mark!!! That's a good start. I was drooling at Pete's stash of roadster stuff when I was building mine, he sold me a pair of quarters.
You are welcome, I'm happy to help. Great to see a young guy interested in building a hot rod! Good luck and have fun, Ron

Done deal, PM sent
@old32 where you live? Maybe I have seen your Nomad around. Is that a 30-31 coupe I see in the background/foreground?
If you need any of the above I'm sure I can handle the shipping. No problem, my pleasure to help out.
Good luck Jim, glad to see the community come together
39 juice brakes wide five drums for me. They work great and I really like the wide five look.

Good buy bro!! Hope to see it around soon
As stated above, the end carbs are not in use until you put your foot down. That is why it is critical to seal butterflies closed while cruising....
@GordonC I see Mass tags on the 31, care to elaborate?
Hey, I recognize those cars! Haha
The coupe doors measure roughly 27 inches and roadster doors 22 and change. The roadster quarter makes up that difference 4.5- 5inches.
Wow, your quarter panels still had the attaching points to the subrails, I'm jealous.
Great project bro, keep up the great work
The repop hinges are made well. . . . The holes don't line up though! I had to re-drill. After a few weeks in the elements they look original
