Drivers door with a new jam
First time I've seen your thread. Like what your doing. Tim
I really dig the route you're taking with this build.
Where'd you get these shockers from?
Five years !! MUCH respect man !!!!! Good for you. That looks awesome. I love it.
They are old indi friction shocks I got from a good friend Ernie Harmon
I don't suppose he has any more?
Fixed my cowl

At vintage hammer
Yummy, you're livin' right
I used a LB '32 stock top on mine, and it's chopped 3".
I installed it around the tack rail first, then trimmed the 3" extra off at the rear top bow. The rear panel has the stock gypsy curtain, and it comes with no window cutout so you can center and place your rear window frame. They also sell the chopped window frame. It's a VERY nice, complete kit with easy to follow instructions. The ONLY problem was some of the screw-in rail snaps were easily ruined screwing them in, even with predrilling the holes. LB gladly replaced them. Tip: don't use their tacks, they are hard to install and don't hold. I used a pneumatic stapler, and it worked perfectly.
Thanks so much for the info I need to know about their products
No Pre-war roadster had an open drive shaft, especially if you are running with 36 wishbones in rear. You might want to re-think the direction you are headed with that. People will see that and wonder what you were thinking.....
Just my .02
(is the back half of the car Brookville?)
Yeah that was the old set up. I'm running a full 34 rear end 39 gearbox with a 34 21 stud closed driveline. aluminum heads
The rear quarters are and the subrails are Brookville . Every thing else is real
This is what the roadster looked like 4 years ago when I bought it as you can see the doors are laying up against the Rhino to the right this is all I had to start with and the chassis by the way is real with clear numbers it is now registered as a 32 roadster in California with 32 plates and cleared 32 numbers
