    So as of late I have been sandblasting away with my harbor freight style 10 gallon sandblaster. Slow progress but getting there. This is a pic of half the cowl done. Finding some metal work that needs some TLC but it's the Joy's of a project 20181128_144229.jpg

    I raided the kids sandbox toys for a sift. I know they had a bigger one but I cant find it. So this small one works to get the trash out of the sand 20181128_154202.jpg

    So I went to hang some doors. I had two passenger side doors and one drivers door.

    The drivers door, someone had cut it in an odd place. So I took the skin and top section from the one passenger door and put it on drivers door.
    Then had to chop to fit the body

    Also fit the wood header to really fine tune the quarters. 20190514_162608.jpg 20190515_123230.jpg 20190514_131141.jpg 20190521_122737.jpg 20190523_100318.jpg 20190517_134645.jpg 20190521_122730.jpg 20190523_162503.jpg

    Thanks for sharing your build, REALLY NICE SHOP!...do you do this sort of work professionally? Also I would be interested in following the construction of your homemade pullmax, will you perhaps post this elsewhere?

    No this work is a hobby. It's being done in the back of my machine shop.

    The pullmax build is on a pause as I got sidetracked with another off topic build.
    Now I am working on the model A again .... so I go where my attention is directed

    I have a bunch of parts locked up on the opposite side of the border. :-(

    Waiting for covid cases to settle so border can re-open
