    Finally back on the sedan. Got the quarter tacked and the floor replaced behind it. Also have the drivers side inner fender back together and ready to weld back in. Just waiting to get the passenger side to the same point.

    And of course the reason I was away from the car for a bit. Got the future shop all up and dried in. Saving for concrete now.

    I thought the rust in my 41 poncho was bad - after seeing your Chevy I was lucky !! I'm enjoying your build.
    BTW any reason for using a timber frame in preference to steel for the shed?

    I used the wood because we were able to build it this far without the slab. For a steel frame, I would have needed the slab first. Additionally, I grew up with wood barns. Dad and I felt a lot more comfortable with it.

    That's fine, I like timber as well. I was just curious, as I see steel construction in about 50% of residential construction all the time.

    We have built wood structured my whole life. Framed Houses to pay for college. More of a comfort level thing.
     
  11. Love your progress so far. Keep at it!

  13. Hello everybody. I have a uncle who has a 1941 Sedan 2 door for sale. He has extra parts for it as well. I will get pictures I am surprised he is selling it but he is on Hospice and no longer wants it. I will get pictures up soon. We are located in southern california.
     
  14. The front facade is reminiscent of the Alamo..........Hmmmm........ Alamo Rod Shop has a nice ring to it.

    The small room is actually a single bay. It's 14x24. Plan is for a "clean" side of the shop for when it gets finished. There will also be a small 8x10 in the main portion that will hold the air compressor, engine stand and lift.

    And set it back in with trans so that I could get the trans cover modified.

    Need to pull it again to finish welding up the firewall holes and then the front legs of the body.
