Thanks Bruce. Hopefully I'll get more info/photos up soon. I am actually having problems with the interior panels. The doors lines don't seem to match up at all. What kind of problems are you having?

Cr_ p I missed that one...sorry

I filled the (out of place) interior door panel line and scribed a new one.

Had to take about an 1/16th off the bottom of the whole panel as well..due to lowering.

Howzit goin' Jason?

First off I wanted to apologize to everyone for the lack of post and photos. Everything's been on the back burner for a while due to family stuff.

I also wanted to thank everyone for all the inspirational comments. I'm blown away! Hopefully I can get back at it soon. Very soon.

Here's some work I did before I stopped that I never posted

Had to cut out the floating battery. Made a replacement piece and also made some pieces to smooth out the rest of the motor compartment.

Made support brackets for the new pieces.

Mounted the pieces higher then they have to be so I could just shave them down and shape them. Saves on body work.

Finished, body work and all.

I hope the "family stuff" goes over smoothly. Any idea when you'll be back on this? This was a lot of inspiration for me to work on my 36 custom and make some headway on it.

Thanks for turning on the light and not leaving us in the dark.

Thanks Glenn. I really appreciate it. The family stuff is starting to finally smooth out. I'm gonna try and really get back to the bench this week or next. We'll see. Throw me the link to your 36 build, I'd love to check it out.
It's people like you on this forum that keep me wanting to get back to the bench. So thank you for the inspiration.

Yea I didn't do a thread for it, it's just a bunch of boring body work, putty, primer, sand, putty, primer, sand etc etc etc... I'll be sure to give you the link to my under glass post when I make it.

Here's an underneath shot

Wanted to incorporate some of the dimples to the motor compartment.
Plan A was to drill holes from the back of the motor compartment and put plates there but every hole drilled got worse so I filled them.

Plan B I decided to make plates to put in the motor compartment instead of on the outside.

Before I smoothed the motor compartment I thought it'd be cool to make a motor cover out of the first hood that I tried to alter for new body lines.

I wanted to make it a similar shape as the hood ornament
