    Thanks, it is appreciated! I seldom see them completed, Throw the frame in a box and that is usually the last I see of it! Ive really enjoyed watching your quick and quality progress here. Makes me want to get back on my 30 coupe and finish it up! Thanks again for a great build thread! Nicely Done...

  27. Thanks Guys. I appreciate the nice comments.
     
  28. Small Update: I bought some old '28/'29 top irons for the roadster here on the HAMB, chopped 4" out of them, reshaped and painted 'em, and then what turned out to b a bigger job than I anticipated...the end result!!!! The car went to the upholstery shop today.

  29. Preliminary Pictures of the top...Needs to have the back window installed and adjusted some. Overall, I think it came out really well.
