    Got an oil-painting from a known swedish artist that was inspired after seeing my car on the internet.He was also visiting me at the time I started the project so he was in a way contributing to the project as he came with some comments on the flow of the roof that made me cut it up one more time....The artist is not a car guy,by no means.The painting looks really good to me in real life.

    First test drive with the English Coupe.Interior and electrical stuff is finished.Needs a little filler and sanding on the body and one leaf in the rear spring and its ready for the final colour on the body.Is it anybody that know where the firewall and seats came from??This is another very low budget prosject.Lots of fun for the dollars.Next up is a knucklehead bobber.

    You my friend have amazing skill. Not just fabricating, but an eye for flow of a car. I have seen many folks with one or the other, but both seems to be rare.

    Your English Tudor Sedan turned English 3-window Coupe looks fantastic!

    Wow, you've got to be kidding me....

    I saw this post back when the you had started it with the 36, but I totally missed the 32. And you have yourself another winner my friend. Looks great.

    I can't even get a 34 PU to look like a 34 PU and your turning a tudor into a coupe....jeez some guys get all the brains and some guys get all the talent, the rest of us pay them to do it for us.....

    My excuse is always that I don't have the right tools - then you go and say that you make those too!!!! Piss off.

    I don't recognize the origin of either one. They both look great. Please tell us.

    Hi there 50fraud.I was asking just for fun.The seats came with the english sedan body i bought for 600usd.I made some bomber seats in alu that came out very nice and even a two seater.But ended up fixing up and installing the original seats.
    Never seen such seats before so I believe they didn't come in the US models.
    The firewall I got for free.Its from a 1,5 ton truck from 1932.I scaled it down to fit the body that was cleaned for all parts worth having.
    Nowadays I'm restoring a Romertsch body in aluminium for a friend of mine.

    Its only a cheap primer on the body now...I traded it against some english-wheeling.
    So,Bobo,I'm going to put some paint on it when I have the time.Any suggestions maybe?Thinking of a grey-greenish light kind of vintage colour.
    I was thinking of riding my bike to Uddevalla,but a friend of mine is riding the English coupe,if he like.
