Default A little update..

Hi everyone....here's a few pictures - a couple of general ones, and a couple showing some of the work going on with the door and window mechanism. Ah, the joys of trying to build a car out of one that was mostly wood in it's day!!!

I decided to use the rear window regulators in the doors, as they have shorter lift arms, my thought being that with the chop, I don't need as much window travel. I also thought that the shorter arm would give me more leverage in lifting the window (more rotation, but slower movement). The rear window regulators turned out to be the same hand - this car is a bit of an oddball. When I found it, it appeared to have two rear seat - center and passenger side only - so that may explain why the rear regulators were the same hand - the cranks were in different spots. The rear crank handles are also a "T" shape, so I intend to use them - just for something different.

Oh well, I'm still loving every minute of this....
