Default Slow but sure...

Here's a little update.....it doesn't look like much, but it took a little while.....I finally got around to finishing the sheet metal below the doors. All along, it's only been the tube structure, no sheet metal. That and I finished the lower cowl/hinge area.....pluggin away at it....and lovin every minute of it.

Yes, very nice sheet metal work. I'll bet you don't have any reject pieces either.

I don't call them reject pieces, I call them unplaned parts for the next project.

Default Slow progress...

Progress has been very slow lately, but I have lots of excuses!....busy at work, been away on a little vacation etc etc......

Anyway, back to the important stuff. I had to rebuild the rain gutter all around the trunk opening, and this has resulted in the orginal hinges not working out as nicely as I'd hoped. Still wrestling with that....

I did however manage to finish off a couple little nasty spots, front edge of the cowl, and I added a small tube along the top edge of the cowl, lower edge of the windshield. I'm planning to glue the windshield in, no room for the tilt unfortunately.

Worked on installing the dash today - had to make up a couple of tubes to tie the car together, and have something to attach the dash to. Slow progress, but it's coming....

Hey RR's....still working away on the Graham when time permits. I've been working on replacing the tops of the doors. I have also been busy with some other cars - spent the day today working on installing a set of bumpers on the Model A.

Will post some updated pic's soon.
