    The grill and 37 handle arrived this week. Work has been busy, so no real progress.

    Original bezel came with a sectioned insert. If it was full height I'd repair it a little, and run it!

    Moving ahead slowly. Almost finished replacing the cowel top and the louvered deck lid and dash repairs are also close to being done.

    A little color on the louvers makes a difference. Take sooo long to clean up, so at this stage I'm doing it row by row. I'm wnodering if someone could help me I.D a couple of superchargers I've stumbled upon? Pretty sure one is a 4-53 detroit, but I'm unsure on the other.

    I've worked it out, the other is a 6-53 detroit. I'm not sure how good the application on a flatty would be for either of them but they're reasonably priced....

    20180616_175147.jpg What transmission cover is that, original '32?? Seems taller than an original. Would love to find one just like that for my 5w floor.

    The trans cover is 1932 hillman. I bought a heap of panels cheap and that's about all I kept.

    received_10154292948477894.jpeg received_10154292948302894.jpeg I bought these panels for $70 with the 2 chassis and sold them for $450 which paid for some parts on the roadster! Trans cover fits well!

    I've just found your thread, wow! A bunch of great finds! I'm slowly trading my way into a 35 sedan, all good fun. Have subscribed.

    It really is good fun! The hunt can be more fun than the build, and keeping it as a low budget car built on profit from saving and selling rusty tin has made it very satisfying! 2017-05-26 11.05.09.jpg Still a long way to go for me though!

    I'll bet there is not to many(none) 1932 Hillmans in the states.

    Yeah I'm guessing they would be harder to find than 32 parts over there.
