  13. Chipping away on the roadster. Getting parts bolted on and need to wet sand and buff the doors. Everything seems to go together so much slower on final assembly but it is nice to know it's for good!

    Man.. Am I in love with this roadster! Those hood sides are just the right amount of funky.

    Hope to see this at the Round-Up!

    Awesome little roadster.
     
  17. Got the doors wet sanded and buffed the passenger door. Bolted up the fuse panel and some other odds and ends. Hopefully can start wiring some this weekend. Having a Christmas party this weekend so I will have some other priorities to do that I'm pretty sure won't involve a hot rod. Oh well, that time of the year!

    Those gauges.. *swoon*
     
  20. Thanks, need to figure out what I'm going to do with the insert and upper dash rail as far as color.
     
  21. Rolled the roadster out and cleaned up the garage today. There is something I love about a 28-29 roadster with no windshield.

    Oh, it looked like a 2 x 2 in that pic.
     
  26. Been trying to button up about 15-20 loose ends on the roadster. Been getting alot of things done on the list but it seems I've been adding 3 items for every one item I finish. My brother came over today and we made alot of progress and the old car is starting to shape up. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
