    Well winter set in for sure at least I'm workin inside. Who would have thought a convertible top could be such a struggle? I guess I should a learned from the Camero. It's coming along, just lots a measurein an butt scratchin. Tom, my helper is a boat top builder who does really wonderful work but this is out of his comfort zone. It's in 1926 Chevrolet top bow set that we made fit our homemade body and unknown windshield frame. amazing what ya can accomplish if you set your mind to it. Hope y'all are winterin well an progressin on yer rods' check out the new white walls / portawalls...

    Outstanding Bryan! I love how this turned out. Nothing better than a cruise with the kids in a Tub.


    Way to go Dude!

    Wow yours is in a lot better shape than mine. Good luck with it. I'm going with a late 40s early 50s look.
