    I am interested in following your progress of your coach, as I have just purchased most of the remains of a 1928 2 door coach here in Australia. I will be picking it up in the next couple of weeks and then putting the panels into a molases bath to remove all the rust.
    If any one has any dimensions of a 28 chev coach that would be handy ie the distance between the door posts at the top middle and centre from left to right and front to back. they would be much appreciated
    sorry for hijacking your post
     
  7. My car is a cut down tourer (phaetom [sp?]) so no roof, but you can see how I did the floor and A & B pillars
