    Here's my narrowed 49 Merc dash that was really rotten, still needs some work but I'm pretty happy with how it fits and looks in the 47.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Really nice! Debating putting this one in my '53 Chevy pickup or maybe the '26 Chevy roadster. It's a '55 Studebaker Speedster dash. 100_0862.jpg

    I've got an active build thread for my 37. (Not your average 37 Chevy build)

    A few more years in the woods and she would have been "gone like desoto's"

    I've been working my self up into a nervous wreck thinking about how I'm going to fix the body on my project, but compared to most of these cars I should consider my self pretty lucky.

    At least 1/2 of the cars on the HAMB are built out of stuff we would no have even looked at in the early 60s. I take my hat off to the se builders with BALLS!

    That was the largest piece I had. The roof is off of a 5w, door skins are from the sedan, and the cowl was just a cowl I had. Rear quarter tops are actually pieces from fenders, and the body line on the quarter was made by converting a punch press into a makeshift power hammer, and pounding it out of a piece of sheet metal.if you look behind the car there is a pile of left overs from pieces I cut to make it.

    Started with some quarters off a river bank, a roof from pinstriper40, a deck lid from mr.chevrolet, some doors from eBay, a mangled 2 door sedan from a field, and a frame from another field. IMG_20170402_174421735.jpg 20171012_200106.jpg 20171210_154007.jpg

    It used to be so much easier. I did not appreciate it then.
