    Is the back of your cab flat like a '28-'29"? My '31 is curved. Cut down Phaeton?

    vicky bowtie - filler 001.JPG Looks great ! ...nice work...
    when i tilt the windshield posts back on a 1930 -'31 i use the '31 vicky, an A 400 or any other slant window's FILLER PANEL, [between the w/s and gastank] ...
    it is taller and has a gradually indented grove that helps the w/s frame lay flat against the "filler panel", which i call the "bowtie" cause of its shape ...
    also useing the trailing '30 -'31 door edge [skin], and it's jams, can be done so the door's skin is seen to overlap the jam, then blend the 1" of flat jam into your back panel...
    gives a factory look to the union of the quarter panel and the back panel...
    looks kinda like it coulda been a factory aussie, or canadian R P.
    just spitballing...

    So much for the "No trading on Friday"!!!!!!!!!
    Numbers were well down on the Saturday from previous years, the weather prior wouldn't have helped.

    Rebel Round up should be good. I live just up the road from the racetrack so a lot easier than getting to Kumeu.
