Geez Jari, you certainly have made excellent use of all this spare time. Your metal work is stunning.

Looks fantastic Pugsy! I'm guessing that the center piece will be latched/removable? Unique idea,haven't seen it done before.

Thanks.

Yes, removable. Need to figure out a good method to attach it. Thinking Dzus fasteners.

That's the same wiper unit I installed on my '40 last week. It's tricky getting the cable all greased up and installed without getting grease all over.

I love grease....oh, and anti seize. I never get a drop on my hands...ha.....

I read that a fellow had his grease dry up in his wiper unit. Not sure which grease to use at this point. I'll think about it in another 5 years or so when it's time to assemble the car.

Anti seize HA I love and hate that stuff. We used lots of that at work. I learned about 35 years ago how to or not to use that stuff.
The thing is with the wipers I very rarely use mine. I'm a rain X guy even on my daily driver. Not sure if it was a good idea or not but I pushed a little plastic cap on the end of the last tube after the second transmission. I just thought I don't want any grease dripping out.
I'm using up parts I had bought over the years. This wiper kit I had bought so long ago it came with a VHS instruction tape.

Wow, VHS instructions. Good thing you used the kit up.
I do stuff like that. End up not using stuff I bought.

5 more years ? The patience of Jobe. And I know you don't rush things either. Another great tutor to learn from.

So much has been done, hard to post all of it on every forum

Top chop was done without cutting the A or B pillars. Also, doors were not cut. Also, a 37 Ford split window was added for a bit of cool factor.

Thanks. Needs a fair bit of Bondo skimming, but I'm at the point of just getting this finished as soon as possible.

Here's a pic from 12 years ago or so. Fatten up the arse end on her.

I used the same brackets and screws and stuck them on the car for a look and to start making extender bits of metal.

Using a strip of metal to locate the blend in point.

Since it was a Friday night and the ewheel was at work, I thought I'd try to hand form patches with a hammer and dolly. Dolly was a big chunk of steel for tap a tapping on.

Lots of pock marks from every hammer hit. By this time, it was well past the weekend and I could have brought the wheel home, but I was enjoying the hand tapping. I was learning a lot about where to stretch the metal, so this knowledge would help later using the ewheel.

I've never been good at wheeling a shape from scratch, just half decent at using it for blending in.

 

Making little templates for the shape where the patch butts into the quarter panel/wheelhouse connection.

I think the skills you demonstrate in this forum are like most things more impressive when seen up close and being there. Photos are great but being there and seeing what you do is so much better. You certainly inspire me Pugsy. Great stuff we can all find inspiration in.

Wow just wow Jari, the lines on that car sure are improving with each piece you've modified. Bonus you also share lots of great info on how you fit things together to make the modifications flow and become part of the car. Thanks for sharing the pictures looking forward to the next update.

Paul
