    Thank you, will do!
    Thanks! Clark's working while I do this. Working the day shift and the night shift. Lots to get done!
    Thank you! No, Clark made the buck by hand. Yeah it is helpful!
    Thanks for checking it out! I've been lagging on posting but here are some more progress pics of the roughed in panels and the catwalk welds Clark metal finished. IMG_0593.jpg IMG_0592_2.jpg IMG_0594.jpg IMG_0595.jpg IMG_0596.JPG IMG_0597.JPG IMG_0598.jpg IMG_0600.JPG

    Damn that's cool.
     
  4. Beautiful work as always! What tool was used to shape the contour around the rear window? Did he use a bead roller? What car did the rear glass come out of? What process did you use to cut it?
     
  5. Beautiful metalwork.
    Can you step back (or better yet, roll the car outside) and take a profile picture?
     
  6. What/who is the manufacturer of these clamps ?

  7. I was wondering the same thing. They answered that question in a different thread about the '38 Plymouth.
