    Unfortunately I do not own an English wheel so it makes this a little more difficult to make I do have some tools but most of it is hand tools I do have a sedan lower door patch that I will be splicing in at the bottom to ensure it flows well and will have to make a brace for the inside middle of the door but the advice tips and tricks are very helpful and if you have anymore please keep em coming I could use all I can get thank you

    Listen to these guys. Most of us follow along, maybe occasionally offering some "atta boys" but don't have the experience to help. But we are watching! Thanks for sharing.

    I'm a rookie for sure at this, I know it's not the prettiest work but I'm trying to do right by it! I have got a lot of learning to do still but if I am not happy with it I'll cut it out, I greatly appreciate everyone's input and "atta boys" haha Thank you!

    I have always wondered why as well, especially since his prototype looked so good, I suppose he wanted to release it as an All New idea and body in 32 and that coupe looks very nice what make?

    Its a 28 dodge brothers.It would be interesting to know why ford didn't start to mass produce 3 windows till 32.Not sure if dodge brothers had something to do with it.

    It's a possibility as the dodge brothers worked for Henry before the went in business

    The Dodge brothers were out of Ford around 1918 & both died in 1920. The family sold the company to the investment bankers Dillon, Read. They sold Dodge to Walter Chrysler in the mid 20s, so Dodge had nothing to do with Ford's lack of a 3 window. All of Ford's aesthetic decisions were made by Edsel Ford, as Henry couldn't care less. So your guess is as good as anyone else's.

    I most confess I lifted them from here.
    The HAMB has everything.

    Some guy posted the 68 pics, and claimed he saw it. But I forgot who posted them.
