Default more parts....

yesterday before my trip back home from musclecar madness ..

my daughter/partner took me to the the local Vintage car club sunday parts opening morning..

on a mission to find some trunk parts -- failed, but did find a couple of old windscreen frames I can make one out of (maybe 2), and a front cowl for a late teens/early 20s mopar ,,, I nearly didn't go for the cowl the Cory (the daughters BF) said "nah go on ask him" ..

$30 on the frames , and $25 ! for the cowl just couldn't walk away without them ..
im thinking I can almost do 2 screens 1 for the roadster and one for the coupe, (the coupe is really annoying me at the moment as Ive lost sight of the end goal.. too many conflicting ideas..

the roadster cowl is inviting by its simplicity ( I know don't give in Al) - but T chassis and 50's flathead 6 just shakes my flip flops right now !

Nice score.
That cowl could lead you many places.

Good work 23. Yep a cowl makes the rest of a roadster happenable.
Flathead sixes are appealing to me as well lately for some reason.

due to technical difficulties ,, hard drive imploded, and the loss of my sd card adapter ( win 10 and samsung mobile are not good friends)..

anyways some progress on roadster parts .... been collecting enough stuff ,, quite rusty.. connect the gray bit to the black bit, shorten up the screen posts ,nothing i reckon i cant manage ..

thought id have ago at pin striping,, paint pens make it easy ..

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
