    You have new tops for your cowl posts. Are they something you made or are they purchased? Great work.

    Any cracks in the edge of your fenders? Be interested to see how you fix them.

    No the are perfect . But if I have a bead break to fix you replace the wire that's cracked then replace some of the bead as well .

    Got a 28/9 winter front for the roadster !

    A winter front for a roadster?
    The motor can warm up but how about you?
    You gonna put a heater in the car for you?

    eBay seller "crazyleeroy" sells replacement cowl post tops/windshield post mounts. No personal experience with them, but they look to be well done. Might be an alternative to cutting up an (expensive) Brookville cowl post.

    I too have a set of those bought a couple years ago. mine don't have the bar and round bungs on the back side, just a couple square nut's tacked on. made out of very thin sheet metal and fit like a saddle on a sow. another 100 dollar piece in the junk pile.

    Full fendered? Dang, I just got motivated and the wife and I decided to ditch the fenders. Between this and Ryan's & Rex's tub, I may need to reconsider my '28 roadster with fenders. LOL!
