    Anyway alot has changed since my original first hotrod build thread where I was originally building a T and had started on a frame and whatnot. Whoops hit enter way too soon better edit and keep typing.

    Anyway again I recently got the chance and took the chance to buy this project.

    Here is the pic from the add, it is only mocked up in the pic. There is alot of work to do here.

    I would say it needs a little bodywork.

    I had a mate who knows model a's go look at it, it is rough has no floors, but the rust is minimal besides what you see on the surface, and bottom of the cowl and doors. It is mostly dents and botched panel work that someone has done.

    The cool thing is it is a real model a roadster.

    As I warned my boss, and I even have it on a t-shirt. "Warning may do stupid things at any time."

    It probably will look quite different from the mockup, that is how the seller had it advertised in that mocked up stage. I must admit he has good taste as his mockup is cool.

    Yeah still doesnt feel real yet, I think it still needs to sink in that its really mine. I am one step closing to feeling like I can say I am a hotrodder, it goes beyond just being into hotrods. Right of passage you could say.
