Thanks Rob, I have the tricky parts still to do!

Cut the “wheel wells” in the front mudguards just ahead of the running boards.

And a hole in the rear mudguards for taillights.

But very pleased with the shape…..

Nice work so far crowie. The Fords sold in Australia are different from the American models of the same year.

Thank you Mike.
Yes one of members of the Early Ford Club told me that, from memory something to do with the body length.
