    About a year ago I dragged this body home and had it sitting for a while before I finally started building in february of 2017.

    this is what has happened so far, hope to have it done for next season.
    It will have some traditional stuff put in it, 39-40 mostly, but a steering box from 48 and a french flathead snuck in there. It'll all e built on a model A frame I dragged out of a barn some odd years ago that had a rotten 4 door body falling off it.

    I'm no genius and worst of all with computers so if I somehow fucked this post up, I'm sorry.

    Love it. I only wish my 27 body was as solid as yours. I'll be following your progress!

    Looking good! I just acquired a 27 roadster body. Yours looks to be in great shape. Mine needs a ton of work. Especially the rear subframe. Ill be following along. Good luck

    It's in pretty good shape for sure, some sheet metal needed repairs and its hacked off in the rockers but most of it is intact and subframe is really nice. Let me know if you need measurements or anything, I know it's simple stuff but this was still pieced together with original rivets and pretty straight.

    Was gonna post some progress today but realized all my pics are on the computer, had a break in at the garage tonight.
    They stole my welder and some tools but didn't touch any of my parts luckily.

    Made some progress lately. Had some shitheads break into my garage and steal all my tools so the build was down for a few months but now I'm back.

    Frame is about done, needs a few finish welds before paint, engine is rebuilt, just put an order for new wheel bearings and some other good stuff so soon it will be on all four.

    Hope to have it running and driving in April.

    In post number 9, is that the patch panel that is available through Macs or Howells? If so, how well does it fit?

    I bought it through Lang's, might be the same but I don't know.
    It fit pretty good, not without some modification but I feel like that's always the case with patches you buy.

    Might be the 'new Model A', but I wish they'd quit with the '28-'31 radiator shells!
