  10. My little tub seems to have popped up here a few times...
    Here's a couple of my favourite photos of her being used and abused.

    You can delete this if you want. I just brought my 39 Tub, ( well part of it) out of storage and started the build. She's got a long way to go. Will start a thread soon.

  15. 39guy, Glad to see you're moving forward on your tub, there are only 13 body parts, hood, trunk, 4 doors, cowl, 4 fenders and center support post and seat back, do one a month and this time next year you'll be riddin' around. here's mine built on a closed car 4 dr sedan floor and cowl and rear quarters that I put tub rear quarter tops on and redid the rear doors Cut Line and I was set, go man!

    Interesting approach and it came out well . I have ordered all new sheet metal for the floor. I bought a trunk floor for a sedan only to find out I actually need a floor for coupe or convertible... I will have to communicate with the people at Absolute Sheet Metal and see if I can exchange the two rear pieces so I can have the flat floor ( just a preference). If not I will just make some new pieces to make it flat. When I start the thread you will see that this rear quarter is pretty messed up. I figure it will take a month or two just to remove all of the bondo and brazed in patches and make new sheet metal patches.

  23. 30/31 Ford tub from Ryan. This was a prettycommon practice in the 40's and early 50's to adapt 37, 38, 39 windshields to get the "V" look.
