    Interesting story and a nice coupe. Good to see how it has evolved. We could do without all of the ha ha though.
    It all gets a little annoying.

    shit another long ass time in between updates!
    i dont get on here much these days, but i thought id update this to keep track.
    The coupes slowly progressing, and last week it finally copped its first coat of primer. Since the last update, ive basically re worked the entire body, although most mods will go un noticed by the untrained eye, unless you really know your model A fords. The doors are now flush fitted instead of over lapping, and i made an outer sill much like a 32 ford, instead of the lower body line being a part of the door, its now the sill. The car now has drip rails like a 34, the roof is reshaped and smoother up more like a 32 and also has a cowl vent. The top of the cowl is peaked and reshaped to kinda mimic the cowl vent and the 32 grille shell.
    It sure was great to finally wheel the car out into the street and check out the proportions! Check out the comparison between it and my mate curtis grimas coupe, both improved A models on 32 rails but worlds apart.

    I saw it on intagram but it's good to see it in a bigger screen. Killer work, I love what you've done to the roof insert as well.
