looking nice Tim
Today i cut out all the remnants of the floor and subrails. Kind of sad really. Every panel around the bottom of the body is going to need patched. Im waiting on some panels to come in, then i will get started.
Tim - are those UP pieces nice? I've been wondering how they are....especially since they announced the price for a complete body a few weeks ago.

Subscribed,can't wait to get started on mine, just recieved UP floor and subrails very nice. Will start thread soon. Jeff
So far I am very pleased with the upac parts. I am waiting on the piece below the deck lid too.
Any one know who makes the best fender well patch? Im going to get my others from Tom Bay.
I'm looking forward to watching this one come together.
FWIW... I have used Dick Spadaro for all the sheet metal on my build. I know the subrails were UP and they were nice. I assume the other panels were UP also???
Check my build thread in my sig for a look at the subrails and panels.
Way Cool !!!!!!!!!! Keep us posted,......
Happy Roddin' 4TTRUK
Today I set the body on its new subrails and floor. Its going together pretty nicely. The doors fit good with fairly uniform gaps.
I took pics but will have to post them later.
I dont think there are anymore 5 window we found all of them ! good luck
Update: subrails, floor, and panel below deck lid are in. Body is square and the support structure I built has been removed.
Next steps: complete the floor welds and cut out body rust. I have patch panels from Tom Bay.
I am excited to see your progress, time for some more pictures

Looking good! Keep the photos coming after playing with the kids. Thanks for the tip on the rear braces off the K member.
Nice! I was wondering what was your latest project. Looks like your work space is "a little" bigger than before, too!
Looking terrific Tim.

Floor and panel below deck lid finished.
Cowl Repair started.
patch is being modified to fit. It needs a lot of work to fit properly with the rocker panel.
More to follow.
if you click the link at the start of the thread, you will find the history.
I found it on ebay, but it was found in the woods by someone else.
I sure can. I have used that thread many times already, thanks for starting it.
I will wait until I'm done with the body work, then go back thru my pics and post it on your thread.
It's looking good! Keep the pics coming!
I got the drivers side cowl patch welded i have today. I still need to go back and complete the welding. I'm happy with the fit after I did some modification to the panel.
I will post pictures when i finish the side.
looks cool Tim
I gather that these are to stiffen up the frame. Would they be used instead of boxing the rear of the frame? Up date: Checked the manufacturer's site and it says they are for roadsters and 3 windows. Any modification for your 5 window?
'32 Roadster and 5Ws have the same floors, so Steve's K member legs work with all passenger bodies. He offers two versions one for flat floors and one for stock, as stated above.
