Cool project! Can't wait to see it unfold. I had access to a car similar to the one in your original post (might actually be the same one, I'm not sure so I won't say it for certain) and the rear body section was actually cast in aluminum. I wasn't expecting it when I was looking over the car, but it was pretty cool. It's kind of funny how when you see cars on the show field you can barely get close to them, but when they show up in the shop you can crawl all over and look at whatever you want.

Default Finishing the body buck

Well, I have finally been able to get back to work on my project after a long break. Life has gotten in the way. I have been able to restore some woodworking tools during my time off that is making the wood working a lot easier. I am starting to work on the body buck. I have attached the back half of the wood framing using a steel frame. I have fastened the door posts and hung the doors using hidden hinges. My next steps will be to build the boat tail and hopefully, begin to start the metal work. The chassis is about 85% complete, the drive train is fully restored, so now the fun begins with building the body.

Thanks Kent and Steve, it feels great to get back to work on it. I don't know much about woodwork but I sure am learning a lot.

Default Starting to have fun

Starting to have fun, 1st day with my new hammer, roughed in a door skin, horizontal and vertical radii are pretty close, sweep 26 for the horizontal, 86 for the vertical. Hammer makes quick work of it, increases the fun level for sure! Trying to keep busy in the shop and progress on my project. Have had the opportunity to collect some equipment to try and make my life a little easier. Attached are pics of the hammer, P-hammer and erco shrinker. I hope to pick up a flanger machine in the next week or so. More pics to follow.

Hi, I made some tools for my pullmax, replicated the sides of an original Duesy radiator. It wasn't too difficult of a project but added to my learning skills. I finally got the chassis mostly finished on the car, still need to run some brake lines, got the engine up and running, supercharged and fuel injected. Now that it is somewhat complete, I hope to finish the woodwork and start the build of the body. This first project was small in comparison but non the less fun.
Thanks for looking
Pat

Nice work Pat. That timber work looks amazing in itself.
