Thanks. I will..
Looks great Jimmy! Following along....
Only few would accept such a challenge
You recognize the art of your own creation.
This measure is what i need for this weekend.. From an original Roadster.. pls help..
We need to do it, cause we can't bye any Henry roadsters
and i have good help from my friend Martin...
It is good to have talented friends, and friends who find you cool parts are good too.
This is what we did this weekend... A lot of fitting and trying and planing and a little welding...
What are you doing with the tube between the hinges on the passenger (right) side door?
My guess is the piece of rod between the hinges is drilled and tapped on both ends to make it easier to keep the door hinges aligned while moveing all the body parts around....... great idea and good work!
Yes. this is a tool drilled and tapped to fix the hinges... got it in line and can keep the distans between them..
This looks like great start, Swedish engineering at its finest
Man, your making some great progress.
Can’t wait to see on some wheels and on the ground.
Prepare for winter.. Urk. so no time for ''Roadster''. But more will come.. No need of the paintbox in the winter. to cold. Little frame fixing..
I am liking this very much....We know how hard it is even over here in the USA to build a hot rod & it is so much more to do this outside this country. My hat is off to you for doing this. Your work looks great and I am sure you will get this done.
If you get to the Midwest on your USA trip I would love to see it in person, so stop by my shop in Nebraska and I will buy ya a cold beer.
Little more frame fixing... We will se if its in good shape tomorrow when it's cold..
Dam! You sure keep a clean shop...
If not holes for the top, they could be holes for snaps to secure a tonneau cover.
Neat project. Thanks for sharing in this thread.
There is plenty to see and do in the Pacific Northwest of the USA on your way to B.C.
Hope to see you and your car here.
Some pics of my garage. And four sons, four grandsons.. Daughter (one) is missing on this photo.
Great shop pics, Jimmy.
God, I'm such a hack...
What a great thread!
You definitely have the determination and skills to save this
Pictures are a great learning tool for me
Can't wait for more updates.
Little more done this week. My friend Martin make some nice pieces even when i'm not in the garage. Friends helping hands..
