    Some of you know that I've been working on a 29 roadster for awhile now.
    I just wanted to share some pictures.

    Came with an Auburn dash

    I noticed there where alot of layers of paint, so I started by stripping that grey primer off and suddenly the car was yellow.

    OMG ! I love that roadster, looks like a great project. Are you looking for any history on it or no ?

    The car had two different taillights in the past, 39 Ford units and early Buick.
    I decided to go a completely different route and use 41 Hudson taillights for this car. I had only seen them successfully used on Jack Calori's 36 and I figured I'd be the first to use them on a hot rod (I might be wrong but I haven't seen any other examples).

    Hudson taillights don't have a flat mounting surface and I decided to french them in slightly, to hide any gaps.
    There are backing plates, where the lights mount to (not shown here)

    Damn, that looks great. Is that a stock hood you're going to lengthen?

    I hate doing body work, so I try to do everything in stages, a panel at a time.

    Little more bodywork. Yes the hood is still a little short.

    Really excited to see all these pics in one place. I can't wait until you get to the engine. Hey what'd you end up doing for the license plate?

    Keep it up!

    I don't really believe anyone could actually build a car out of that pile of scrap.
