    Jon, I`m a bit late to find this, but I will be following as well. Shop work and other stuff have combined to keep me away from here, but I will be making an effort to see what you are up to....

    Watching... As much as I love a nice 33/4 Tudor, I'd rather have a 3w

    Looking good, I always like seeing projects that start with a media blasted body, just makes for a better rebirth IMO. Bob

    I am stoked to watch this since I am doing the same thing! Funny there was a bunch of us Utah guys all on the same path! Glad I get to watch you with your mad skills do it first! How close is the back of the two door sedan radius to a 3 window? I am wondering if you slide the roof forward and take a pie out of it if it will work? And are you using the sedan back window? Even though they are slightly different?

    Yeah, I was planning to stitch up a few more things on the '33 "coupe" and sell it to start on the '34 instead, I don't need both. Have one guy who has first crack at it but if he passes it'll be for sale for $3500 I don't want to hijack this thread too far so if you'd be interested in being 2nd in line just let me know in a personal message.

    16 gauge was tough for me, using my caveman tools. :( and I only had to make the bottom half! :) There's a couple pics in my album.

    Yeah 16 is a workout for sure, unless it's aluminum. I'll check out your album
