    I have been collecting parts for my 34 roadster for a couple years. I finally have a couple months to work on it and some of my other projects.

    I got a deal recently for a rear clip and 3 doors (well 2 1/2 doors) to go with my cowl.

    I started with the 1/2 door first... the skin was pretty straightforward... the door edge is going to be tricky.

    Here are some pictures of progress with the door wood frame. I was lucky to have picked one set to use as a template.

    Looks great! Looks like you’ve found some good doors. I think you are doing the right thing in making your wood. I am going to do the same on my Phaeton after buying the wood available for one door. The finish work was what I feel is pretty rough for the $1050 cost of it.

    I got the cowl last year from a guy in Southern California, the rear clip and doors came from a friend in Northern California.

    RonaldR here looking at the cowl it appears that the throttle is on the right side, must have come from down under.

    The key is having a template... I did the b-pillars for my three window last year with my fathers help and have him for this project also. He is the wood guy.

    Yes, the cowl is originally Australian. The roadsters were imported in pieces from Canada and the cowls were modified with a pie cut to fit the Aussie doors. I will reverse the modification to fit the American doors.

  18. It is neat that your Dad gets to help out! Your a lucky fella. Enjoy the moments.
     
  19. That wood work is tooo pretty to cover up, I'd have to just leave the panels off & stain the wood & call it done.

    Looks good! If you end up with an extra door top and want to sell it, let me know. I could use something as a pattern, even if it's shot.
