Cool thread. I used to spend Sunday afternoons at my uncles house helping and watching when I was little. Currently building a 59AB for a 29...
My uncle used to have a poster in his garage. It was an ad for Levi's and was nothing but a close up of a womans naked butt with the stitches of a...
Interesting. Ive never heard of this either.
I like the idea of using wood bows similar to original, then making a vinyl top that snaps on and off...but thats just me.
Looks great. Im doing pretty much the same thing with a Tudor, but it's a real mess right now.
Following this. Also doing a 29 Tudor, currently a mess.

Please do me a favor...

I wasn't going to buy a degree wheel even though I am intrigued by the process and the science of it. But I decided to remove the timing cover...
I just read this entire thread. It answered a lot of questions. I'm building pretty much exactly what you have built. The link in my signature...

Very cool. I love the 28-31 Tudor with a flathead v8. I'm doing a 29 currently.
Nice build. Enjoying the pictures. I'm doing a 29 Tudor with the same motor as yours.
This is exactly what I'm going for on mine.
Im working on a 29 Tudor currently. It'll have a rusty old 59A motor, '39 trans, '46 banjo rear, '46 juice brakes, and '35 wheels.
I just recently...
Part four is up. Got the body on and added some bonus material on the 42-48 oil filled fan hub. Here's a link.
