    Thanks for keeping us warm inside viewing all of your progress. State side most guys would have gutted that car and thrown rust bucket away. Be interested with info on vent windows, as I need to make up some for my chopped '51 Ford coupe project. It is great that you are using the slow times at your shop, because hopefully business will get better and not have much time for your project. Economy for most over here not good either.

    Wow, you ´ve got all of my respect for what you´re doing!
    I dig how you figure out all the details, like the hardtop roof or the transmission. You just make it work without all that chinese 1-800 mailorder stuff! Great job, keep us updated!

    Stefan,

    Once again I will chime with the bandwagon "well done", "I am amazed","I'm in awe". WOW!

    One more question.

    With the bell housing welded, are the internals of the transmission still serviceable for a rebuild later if needed?

    Good work Stefan! The only thing I would change is the rear quarter windows. I would radius the corner on the quarter window. It's a lot of work, but I think it would look much nicer. Good luck on your build.

    The intermals parts of the gearbox are still accesseble as before the rewelding of the bellhausing
    i have hide nothing of screws, lids and like that.

    I have begin to weld the drivers doors bottom

    I think i must change the lower part of the door skin on the right door

    [​IMG]

    I have repared to big holes in it but ther is more on it so it maybe better to change it

    Looks great Stefan.

    How much of the skin are you going to replace? Looks like the top half is savable, or is it hiding the rust underneath the old paint?
