Thanks for the comments guys... I wana see how much of it i can save from the woods. There are lots of wrecks around here to pick from and so far im only in to this for 150 bucks in welding supplies and sheet metal. And i still have lots of material left. so far i only used 16 gauge.

Spent some time today at it the door and check out a color.






Hoping on monday to start the drivers door and skin both at one time.
What do you guys think of the color?? Im thinking like a cream white fire wall and steel wheels

Thanks... I had some help and pointers from someone who does this stuff for a living... As for me this is my first time.

Btw 80's chevy truck roof skins are perfect door skins for model a's

this might be one of my new favorite threads! Very cool what you are doing I wish i could find some old wrecks to scrounge parts off of...

Looks like that 20's stude cowl can be the start to your next build!

That molson door skin would make some cool wall art in your shop!

That build that you are using as a reference is a very well done build.. i think its done now.. or at least close.. theres a tread for it over on a different site

Keep up the good work

The stude cowl is really rough compared to what i have. it can bearly support its self. We proped it up with sticks for the picture...

Thats kinda of the plan but im gona use the whole door. And i need to get the old style gas pedal off it to. once the snow goes.

Yeah i seen the build im part fo that site to but there totally different over there.

Absolutely love what you are doing and what you are saving (both money and parts)!

Keep it going, really looking forward to more.
