    7.jpg I found a roadster cowl for $300 but the piller mount were missing so I'll have to do a little sheet metal work on that, not a problem. I did a little mock up on the wood door

    Really looking good. What is the wood type you are using? It will look great once finished & stained. A Fun project!

    I like what you are doing, but feel the make or break in your project is how well you get those doors looking matching at/with the cowl pillar.
    Otherwise keep up the good work.
