    Wow, thats amazing, I would think you could use the whole thing as a buck and make a few bodies to pay for your hotrod!

    When you get done with the metal car, you ought to make the buck into a really nice wood car. You have better craftsmanship in the buck than most woodie guys have in their cars.

    Jimmy, You are sure doing a great job on this roadster body. Will it have working doors ? If not your idea must be to make it low slung. You know the old step over the body and sit on down ! It sure looks good from these pictures. Good luck with making some buck$ !

  20. Thanks Dave, this body will have the left door welded shut and the right door operational it will be channeled and left hand drive. It will be lower than my 1st roadster and better thought out.

    Hopefully there will be an interest in the bodies otherwise I'll have a stash of future projects :p
     
  21. Very impressive Jimmy.
    I cant wait to watch how it turns out.
     
  22. WOW! Now that's sweet! I'm inspired!
    Got any plans yet for some unique grill shell?
     
  23. Its not often you comment on the quality of the timber work on this site, very impressive!
     
  24. Very, very cool.
