    Nice. I never knew that Zephyr bolts were anything different; the finished part looks great.

    Picked up a load of 16x4 Ford chrome rims so I can pick the best 4 for the roadster.

    Your Royal Victoria is one of my all time favorite customs - and this one is shaping up to be an incredible build, too. Thanks for sharing the progress.

    Dave Martinez whom will be constructing the padded top asked If I could make the wood header he needs so I did so with one solid piece of oak.

    The windshield is a work of art and not the brass ones I have used. Nice work.

    Could you tell me how you are going to attach the oak header to the windshield? I have the same body and a Duvall windshield and want to put a top on it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Luckily for me I was able to weld 3 brackets to the frame because it is steel a brass frame you have to fab some brackets that secure to the screws that hold the windshield frame together. Or drill and tap for brackets.
