I think we need to have a photoshop expert take some of the ugly off and see what it looks like.
Sweet project. It looks like the body and paint are good enough to leave as-is. The patina looks awesome. What are your plans?
Go for it! If you only need to make one, I’d de tempted to not make a mold, but lay it over foam sculpted to shape.
The dead giveaway it’s a Model A is the shiny stainless cowl band. 30/31’s have that
Another photo of Woodrow Jansen’s creation. The back of the photo said “the Bat”. I’m not sure if that was what it was referred to or simply what...

What’s the story with the sedan?
Cool! It’s fun for me to see more of the vision you’re going for. I agree with moving the rest end forward. That helps a lot. What does it look...
It’s not like you’re wrecking a pristine body. I think a slight chop would make it look better, especially since it’s channeled. Go for it!
I don’t know what brand that other subfloor is, but I’d go with the Brookville. If you buy a subpar piece, you’re going to fight it the whole time...

I feel like roadster prices have been going up as of late. A restored roadster brings more than coupes and definitely more than sedans from what...
