    I was lucky when I found this. Previous owner did a lot of work & spent a lot of time collecting parts to restore to original. It was about 90% complete. Since my talents in fabrication & a lot of other stuff is limited I realized I could do only some mechanical things so decided to find a quality person to put it together. Sold the excellent original parts I wasn't going to use & got a frame from Gary Musman (Krylon32) & turned it over to Daniel & crew & picked it up 9 months later & drive it every chance I get. No regrets.

    Make sure you buy all your parts from a gender-neutral, non-voting city that has no internet coverage. LOL

    Now, wait just a minute, guys. Demeaning cup holders is above and beyond being sensible. LOL I might be allowed to visit Austin again, but I WILL HAVE my cup holders in my Deuce roadster. I'll just park on a different row than Ryan. LOL

    A little more work getting the area that blends into the body bent up and tacked in place. Once that is done it is off to get a pile of louvers punched into it.

    Looks good. If you can post a pic of it clamped in place, that would be great to see to get the overall look. Louvers for sure.

    Louvers are punched. Next step is put the body filler on it.

    I skipped some posts, but I caught up on your work just now. Very nice work. I think I'm going to like the lights on the bottom edge of the body; the louvers face the pavement, right?

  19. I'm sittin at the puter....middle of the night....can't sleep due to latest "worn out body surgery" and this thread gets me motivated. When I pass on to the big junk yard, it will be gravel flyin, pipes roarin, and a grin ear to ear. Groovy is getting it done and I see it as a challenge, build it any way I can.

    DSC02260.JPG Forward floor trimmed and tacked in place. I had to cut the portion in front of the seat and put a downward bend in to make 1/2" drop to follow the contours better.

    Fuel tank brackets are trimmed and will have a base welded to enable them to be bolted to the floor.

    Today the firewall was trimmed to get in place so I can determine how best to weld in replacement material to cover over the hole...

    oldtinpusher where are you finding 32 five window parts. I want to look where your looking because I need a good 5 window 32 body.

  29. My sentiments exactly. That's why you will never see a post from me asking anyone what color I should paint my car, or does this wheel look better than this one, or should I leave the fenders on or take them off.
    I'm old enough to know what I want, and how I want it.
    We have a pretty neat old station wagon, but I respect the board and don't post pictures of it here since it has off topic wheels that most on here would not approve of. Susie and I happen to like that style of wheel on that particular car so it is what it is.
