    If you are talking about where I cut the back panel out no way . I would rather spot weld the panel in like stock then have 3 feet of weld with no access to hammer it.

    Flop, is that threaded for lifting or to apply pressure on the bottom piece?

  14. Do you have any guesses as to the history of this car, based on the amount of damage on the body? Think it was an old dirt track car or something?

    I don’t think because the doors matched the paint on everything else and the doors were really nice . Also gonna guess they would have ditched some wood .

    Maybe you have stated this earlier in the thread, but don't recall; are you finally building a 3w for yourself? Or is this for a customer?

    Used it on both side to pull the cowl down because the feet on the inside of the cowl were missing .
