Thanks, Mike! And, I appreciate the kind word, Wayne!  Need to get back to this...  -KK

Haven't finished the '33 coupe and have relocated in the last year to the country estate located in the Georgia rolling hills east of Alabama and just west of South Carolina.  My new/old bench is alive and well in the bonus room over the parlor.  A couple of dormers let in the natural light during the day and over work space lamps light the surface to work in the dark hours of the early mornings.

I'll leave you with a few recent shots of the coupe before it landed back on my bucket stack of semi-started WIPs.  Check you all later, -KK

David, look back at the section where the trunk floor had to be raised... -KK

Simply astounding work on this model. Having a first hand knowledge of how things need to be in the real world has proven to be a real asset here. Of course having the slice and dice skills of a surgeon along with a "take no prisoners" attitude about absolute perfection in all details is obvious in these photos. Thanks for sharing your skills with us. I'm in awe and will certainly continue to follow your progress.

This sure has been an interesting thread with fantastic building and mods. I have picked up a couple ideas from this. Keep up the great work, looking very forward to seeing it in paint.

That’s a nice looking rear end you’ve got there. Nice and tight looking!
