    Pretty impressive progress Quentin!

    Are you sure that ‘floor’ metal is thick enough? Maybe a lot of swages ’cause it’s thin?

    The “new” trunk lid looks like a natural fit! Amazing. Great progress in a short time, I am having almost as much fun watching as you are building.

    Last day before back to work!!!! ….. ugggh . But I managed to get one side of the hood sides operating perfectly ( it fought me for a couple of hours. I could only afford one 8 ft length and the middle took 3ft and the long side took the rest.
    it bows out in the middle and tapers away at the ends so alignments was critical….. but it works perfectly.53808486-DD32-41E6-8FA5-B8FA86E5803E

    Off to Perth tomorrow morning for two weeks, DC2A7433-C0E5-451E-974F-FA770D8B0405 but I squeezed a couple of hours this afternoon to clean up the rear guard. Made the inner piece and welded it up.

    Last night I was scrolling F222AAAB-96BC-4BBE-91B7-96BF4F999AEF through the US Packard Facebook page and found a post of a circa 1950 pic of a camping ground and a  39 120. I looked closer and saw the Victorian 363 plate and then noticed the RAC badge on the bumper. My car has a hole in the middle of the bumper!!! It’sa Black Car!!!! It has to be my car!!!!

    A3FE5881-2A44-4541-9FF3-80DBDAADA633Found a $25 Franklin Mint 40 Darrin. I actually love the burgundy. Good to hold it in 3 dimensions. So I wondered what the 2 seater proportions will look like. So I hammered up a hard boot and I think I like it. I love the roll around the back of the seat. I don’t even mind the full volume of the rear…. kind of like a power bulge.
