Thanks guys!

 

The come back, in slow motion...
I hear the question: openable the rumble seat?
The answer is: No!

Some pieces (modified of course) of the sedan will be used...

Not without difficulties!

Nice to see you back on this one. That top will ask a lot of modifications, I assume.

Thanks Poul, I agree...

 

 

In French I don't know the word, so in English...
Little detail above the door, lot of hours, and it's difficult to see it on the pics!
Just happiness...

Dan, I just found this build so I've now caught up and I'm very impressed indeed.

A beautiful thing, beautifully crafted.

 

On some cars with a rumble seat, you stepped onto the rear bumper, and there was then a plate/step on top of the rear mudguard.

Otherwise access is difficult, especially for Mother in laws!

That’s why you put them there. They’ll only want to come along once.......

And you invite her on a rainy day! Result guaranteed.

 

Sunny day today. But working on the roof an wings.

As you can see, some putty was needed:

Profile looks good, after some hours.

Wings. No glue at home, even on plastic parts. Strength is my obsession...

When bolts and nuts can't be used, riveting with aluminum rivets.

Yellow arrow, heads inside, red, heads outside...

Still alive! For the moment...
Painting, sanding, painting, sanding and this not the end!
First step on the achievement of the doors too.

It's incredible, but for the junction roof/body, you can't immagine
hours number spent.

As usual, at home nothing is only glued. You can see here somme "rivets". Of course this

piece is not finished...

.....Many well spent hours, at that, Dan.

Meticulous as ever.

My fans are still there, thanks!
To Ron, I said "rivets" but they are not. My method: First CA glue. 
Then, it's plastic, drill 0,7mm and without thread, screw with 0,8mm bolt. Cut the head, sanding, it's done and indestructible...

In "slow motion" there is "motion" isn't?

It's the first "finition" paint layer.

This grey will be the color, and don't expect a super shiny...

I'd say that your finish looks flawless, as it stands, Dan.... super-smooth, with just about the right level of shine.

If it was me, I'd be tempted to leave it alone through mortal fear of screwing up the next coat.....:lol:.

 

Cheers, H

Well Dan, with your work, it is becoming normal to expect the outrageous abnormal.

That top as well as the doors look fantastic.

Thank you gentlemen, again...

 

I had to forget a moment sanding, paint and painters.
So, today, Air conditioning system version 1930'... Unfinished!

Dry fit to evaluate the arm length in situ...

Thanks Mr Helle for the controller!
