Frank I'm not strict about anything the way I figure it is basically Mind over Matter.  "if you don't mind, it don't matter".

I will tell Joe you sent your kind regards.  Most of the people I have met in the Delaware Valley Region believe that its your car so do what makes you happy.  Which to me makes sense because that 's what a hobby is all about.  The only caveat is.., if you want it judged these are the guidelines.  Doesn't seem unreasonable.

Basically I am not trying to build a perfect repro but more like a family heirloom.  If both conditions get met then its serendipity.  (an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.)  I love that word, it describes my life.

Well, I'm glad everyone took my comments as just comments and no one got upset...I was wondering if I was going to get "hammered" with replies :)

Anyway, regardless of which way you go Chet, I'm sure it's going to look great when done.  Whatever you are happy with is what matters most.

Ted, if you need haranguing, someone will oblige!  I like to think we're a lot less snarky than a few of the AACA folks.

Thursday my car came home.  Mixed blessing, now the convert has to sit out.  Hoping we have no more heavy snows, ha.

Definitely can have your car any way you choose.  Only limited by imagination - practicality, maybe?

The Roof Lath

I took advantage of the summer like weather and made some incremental progress to the old car.

Nice repair on the dash.  You may want to re-think painting the dash in situ.  Getting adequate coverage on ends, bottom and back might be difficult.   frank

You're right about the Dash Frank, but I will still need it installed.  I don't want them disassembling the dash especially because of the obsolete surface screws.  I'll mask it with brown paper and paint it separately or work something out with the shop.  I would like to remove all the fenders.  It would make for sharp paint edges by painting the fenders off the car.  I think the painter might prefer doing it this way.   I'll talk with him when the time comes. In the very least I most definitely want the rear fenders removed and painted separately.  Still quite a bit away but getting ever closer.

Chet,

You're handy with a welder, you could fab an angle iron piece in place of the dash.  The steering column could be securely attached for wheeling wherever.  If you choose to use body color, dash is ready to shoot with car, along with interior window trim; I know you won't forget the rear window - I did but my upholsterer didn't.
As you say, fender removal is a requisite for a good gloss black all over.  Mine were painted separately.  I'm sure you know the panel under the doors down to the running boards is black, at least on my car.

Chet,
I can loan you the original dash from my car. It had too many holes cut into it to use otherwise.  I used it to move my car to the paint and body shop.

Thanks John for the offer.  I don't see this as a big problem. The dash is easily masked so for now I think we will be OK.

Anyway still time before the car goes to paint. I have top door sills to make and also some other body work. I would like to finish with the needed repair to the door wood frames.  Maybe paint over the summer, we will see how much progress gets accomplished.
