It’s coming together.

I always love playing with the radiator or grill.
I made sure I built it and glued it to the bonnet before I glued the hood to the frame as last time I forgot and made my work a lot harder.
It’s so much easier to sand the grill and hood as one part with out the frame and other parts in the way.

Here you can see the plywood heart of the hood.


Then glue it all up and sand every thing flush.

The oak has some nice grain to it but had to work around a lot a worm holes as you can see in the last picture.
Running out of it but the spare tire should hide this bugger.

Been some time since I built a car, I have a sketch of a 32 Ford 5 window I made some time ago. Got me wanting to finally make it. Coming along nice my friend.

Very nice project! One question on that radiator….how did you cut the groves in it? I really like the look and feel of it. I would like to try it on my next vehicle.
Keep up the great work!
