I've been waiting to post any pictures of my build on here long enough to feel confident it was going to actually pan out. Not to jinx myself, I think I am to that point. About two years ago I was in the finishing stages of a '63 Corvette convertible restoration with my dad and I was getting that old hot rod itch again. My avatar is a Brookville bodied car and I decided I wanted a body with some "history" this time around. I spotted a roadster project here on the HAMB. The rear half of the car was discovered in a junkyard down south. It appears to have been a race car from the 1940's (?) at some point in the Chicago area.... http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/found-in-salvage-yard.227001/ This body was passed around on the HAMB to a couple different owners accumulating other '28-'29 roadster body parts to make it more complete along the way, but no one really ever started the build. Ironically the HAMBer I bought it from lived near Berwyn, IL. Somehow the little car made it back to its midwest roots! I was hoping to save both rear quarters and the panel above the decklid from the original car, but in the end the rust damage to the LH quarter was just too much. However, I was able to find another decent original LH roadster quarter as well as a pretty nice set of '28 roadster doors on Fordbarn. This project would be my first attempt at any serious body work. Sadly it shows in a couple panels, but it is what it is! Its no where near perfect, but its very solid now considering all the patches that were necessary (both cowl posts and both quarters (in two places), plus a very difficult repair on the rear side of the RH quarter). I'll post some pics here for you guys to poke fun at.
