    Congrats from another rough 32 3 window owner, but you know what? You have one now, and it's real steel !!!!!! I am proud you are saving it.

    All 3 windows deserve someone like you.......

    Small update: building the missing parts of the rear subrails. Pass side is just spot welded, needs to be final welded

  7. In case you all missed it, check what Adventurer did with his junk yard find 48 Ford Convertible. It was in miserable shape as well. This one may well be an easier fix compared to that 48?

    Unbelievable stuff. Make sure you join the 32 back from the dead social group. You'll be the king over there.

    Can't wait to see the what you do with the corners and rear quarters.

    Not a close up but you should be able to enlarge it. If you need a closeup I can get you one later on.

    First thing, I want to say thank you to all nice people who replied with pics and compliments. Some appreciation is needed in such a long and difficult project. My problem is that I cannot go to a meet, and find another 3 windows to get pics or measures. I have to rely on the HAMB and the internet to find the pics I need.

    As for progress, we have fixed the driver door, now shape is correct in the lower part. Problem is the upper part, where it was cut off and then welded back. We need to fix the roof and then fix the upper door...all together, to get a common shape. The driver side quarter has been cut off and hammered back into shape. But we don't have a good drip rail so can't put the quarter back on until we weld the drip rail back and get a correct shape for the upper part of the quarter. Now we are working on the pass side door, looks a little better then the driver side. I am waiting that some stuff from Brookville arrives, like the drip rail, the lower patches, the lower panel under the trunk and the quarter panel braces. Will post some pics tomorrow.

    Good thing, doors are very rustfree....but badly dented. They were the door tops cut off, as to make a roadster, and then welded back on very crudely
