"32 Deuce Coupe

I drilled the exhausts out and have finished the chassis. I am going to attach the wheels with NO metal

axle. It is a pain and I don't like my static cars rolling around when I pick up their display cases. Also I

have never seen a '32 Coupe with a solid front axle, looks more accurate with spindles. The wheels will

glue in nicely to the backing plates on the front axle and rear end.---John

I have the wheels glued to the backing plates. I use a homemade jig to help heep the

wheels in line and squared up and down. Works OK for me, 2 empty cigar boxes courtesy

of my wife's work.---John

I have the interior and body together. The top did NOT want to seat on the bottom of

the body after I added the interior and glass so I super glued the line up pins and area

where the firewall will go. It is visible in the first image below. It now has a tighter fit

along the seam running down the body at door handle level.---John
