Sorry for your loss. I lost mine about 12 years ago now (he was 58) I grew up in his MG resto shop. To this day I still think "I will call Dad and ask...." Hang in there.

Default Geting back into it...

Hey everyone...I'm finally finding time to get back into the garage....it's been a while, and it feels great. Didn't get much accomplished today, but managed to locate the gas pedal...not easy with a channeled car (big hump), and my size 12's......I was worried about maintaining enough space between the brake and gas pedals - wouldn't want a panic stop to get real animated when you jam on both!!! Here's a quick pick of the pedals.

Slowly getting back at it....it's been way too long, and it feels great to be back in the garage....The gas pedal is completed, and today I located and mounted the 39 Ford tail lights.....here's a quick couple of pic's.

So....I've been looking at the front frame real hard lately, and have decided that I don't like how "chunky" my home made frame horns look. My "Mac's", and pick up a couple of Ford frame horns....I'll have some updated pic's to show in a week or two. I want to mock them up soon, as I've reached a point where it's time to blow things apart and start plumbing!

Chilly day here today, but cranked up the woodstove and did a couple of those jobs that I've been putting off. I finally finished the front windshield frame, and also made both door tops....it's nearly time for glass, so I figured I'd better get both of those jobs cleaned up.

Found a few minutes to spend on the car so far this holiday....got the trunk latch all fabbed up and working. Nothing fancy, just a tang on the the handle that holds things shut. I have another 4 days off this coming week, so I hope to spend a few more minutes in the garage and I'll try to remember to get some more pictures.

I've been remiss in commenting on your fine build. The door tops are excellent. As is the overall look of the car. Nice work, Bill.
