    Yes, a shroud. I'll form a horseshoe with "L" tabs and mount it to the radiator shell. Will post pics.

    Another helpful tidbit....while closing in on the end....using "British" push together "butt" connectors. I use them for anything I might intend on removing for service: dash, headlights, taillights, etc.
    They are simple, do need a special crimping tool for the wire end bullets.
    But, easy to pull apart when you have to. IMG_20200612_082053572.jpeg IMG_20200612_082239834.jpeg IMG_20200612_110053200.jpeg

    A smidge off the thread direction, but someone else posted one like this, I believe cornhusker. With his thought of grafting this Anglia dash I pulled mine out. It's 2" each end short of full width '32 Ford dash. But I'ma sure someone could figure the artful fit. I save this stuff as paying homage to the ol school tool and die craft. This is made outa "bakelite". IMG_20200624_095606923.jpeg IMG_20200624_095756863.jpeg IMG_20200624_095613557.jpeg IMG_20200624_095652946.jpeg IMG_20200624_095712134.jpeg

    Love the fenders are you going to keep them and run rear fenders also? IMG_20200131_165130343_2.jpeg

    Well, as the inch-a-long continues...circling back around....
    Completely rehabbed the E&J's..mods for high and low halogen lamp with adaptor I made, parking lamp, kellerman turn signals, clean all the brassie, paint, rewired. Introduced "jose cuervo" to calm the nerves... tedious and time consuming now the Packard doo to put them into operation..

    I failed to point out (jose probably blurred my cranium), that the typical E&J model 20 has 50 plus pieces/parts to the assembly. Incredible for after markets headlights let alone for the early '20's era. If you look at the patent doc typically found its clearly short on showing all the pieces. I know, I've counted and compared. They are an engineering/manufacturing collasal feat. Especially at an optional price of $48 in the '20's.. IMG_20200712_122815592.jpeg

    Ultimate...Just ultimate.
    Amazing, the profile/stance. My red '32 Hiboy (1959) sat close to identical. (4 jug flathead, Hali Quickie, reversed Merc steelies, Merc caps)
    A sound recipe, to be sure. '32 5 window, tall.
    At 77, I remember the Bear super clutch. My knee...Ow!

    Mike, hate to lay down, but the '32 has a 200R4 due to new knees, new hips, back surgery, and worse: Arthur Ritus....plus many other non-original goodies.
    My German father-in-law famously said frequently..."jim, it's a damn site easier getting here than outa here". No truer words ever spoken.
