    Progress continues on my grandsons bathtub based wagon. Tin work is progressing well, floor, trunk, tubs are all fitted. I will post more as the project progresses.

    Hey, I thought pro street rods were frowned on here? ;)
    Neat looking kid's car! Nice work!

    It is just a fun diversion from the stalled 44 dodge truck project and we have been busy making tin kits for some protrucks thatare being built locally.

    Another week or two and he will be ready to roll, but will need snow tires for awhile yet

    Too cool and some nice sheet metal work. I see he has already perfected his "cruiser look".

    Those clecos would be approaching beer can size! For a scale perspective, the tubs are 9" diamiter

    The progress continuess. Body will go for paint later this week. Seat and belts have been fitted. Trunk hinges and latch work. now to decide what colour, his fibrglass 41 Willys will be an electric spark blue, so blue is out, grandma says bright so it can be seen while she drags him around the neighbourhood, I'm undecided
