Go, Tim, go!
(But with some more pictures, you know?)
You're making that coupe your bitch! Go go go!
Coming along really well man...love to see old 5 windows brought back from the dead.....!
Progress is slow but steady. I need to remember to bring the camera to the shop.
Thanks for the compliments. This is my 1st 32 build so I'm a little slower and more cautious than I was with my T and As.
Very cool, Tim --- Looking forward to seeing it out on the road this summer!
Hopefully this car goes together faster than your T did....
I started when i was 18ish. Smart ass. I could ask how many you built, but i won't, i will just imply it instead.
Progess is looking good.

Updated with pictures. Front cowl patches and right side quarter and wheel well. I think it is going pretty good. The new patch panels need a lot of rework before they are even close to fitting right.
Panels are mostly welded in. Finish welding and panel smoothing still needs to be done.
I will get the left side done next weekend. Im waiting on the inner door structure, then i will get to doors. Then i will finish weld and smooth all the panels.
Fun thread, thanks for sharing.
Cool project will keep my eyes open .
What is the 32 reference thread you guys were talking about?
It is a thread started by JeffreyJames that has a lot of detail photos and info for the 32 5w body rebuild.
Cool a flathead and a 5 window! Nice build. I'm in...
nice work, beautiful
Im getting a little behind schedule, work is getting in the way.
Hamb drags is a goal I'm trying to hit.
I got the drivers side quarter and wheel well panels in today. They are just tacked in. Both panels took a lot of modification to fit properly.
I will post more pictures when i get more welding done and panels smoothed.
Im waiting on my door patches now.
I spent a little time in the shop today.
I still have a few small holes to weld and weld the inside of the panels all of the way around. I still have some grinding/sanding & hammer/dolly work to do.
Its getting there.
looking nice Tim
I got my door patches the other day, but progress is going to slow down a bit. My baby girl was born yesterday morning and suddenly I have much better things to do than work on an old rusty coupe. Wife and baby are doing great, big brother is proud too.
Congrats on the new edition! That old coupe has been sitting around and waiting for 80 years, its not going anywhere.
Congrats on the new baby! The coupe can wait you have diapers to change now lol
I'm diggin' it! Nice Work!
Congrats on the baby girl!
