    She's rough but I'm sure when it's all said and done you'll have that old Ford looking factory fresh. Let the magic begin!

    Flop, I guess it's nothing new to say that watching you work is very interesting and enjoyable. Love how you just cut it completely apart like a jig-saw puzzle...so you can fix it right. Keep on...

    You’re definitely the best guy for that job!!!!!!
    When this is as one again, that owner will surely appreciate all of your time and effort to give that body a life again. :).
    Happy New Year

    Hey Flop !!!! Is this YOUR baby ?? The roadster stashed for your own affections .... not too long ago ? Instagram or here ... I remember the commentary.

    Boy if it is .... you'll surely earn some scars with this one. Latched on for an additional thrill at life after rust !

    That is a wounded warrior for sure...that looks like something from North Country. Even to a seasoned Metalsmith its got to be a daunting adventure in decision making.

    Happy New Year to You and Your Family @Flop...;)

    After watching you fix ‘32’s I’d imagine a ‘29 Roadster will be a piece of cake Flop!

    That’s nothing to be shy about. That’s a 1929 Briggs Leatherback Sedan. One rarely see one these days... You could’ve driven that on the Horseless Carriage Holiday Motor Excursion today here in Pasadena. Might take ya a lil while to get here though ;)........Happy New Year!!!!!!!
