Pinched down the front frame horns and mounted the front turn signals.  Dug out a pair of old Yankee Clipper fog lights.  Used a Model A headlight spreader bar and mocked them in place.  Im not sure if I like the look yet, but its growing on me.  Front shocks also mounted.

Back to work on the exhaust.  Still playing with the angle of the tip. And need to build the muffler insert.

Is that engine just a place holder? Looks a little crusty…

That is how every one has looked during the build process.  I don't bother cleaning them up until final assembly.

I needed to lay the seats back and keep them as low as possible.  Pulled them apart to mod the frame.  Added 10deg the back support and moved the mounting bolts inboard for better access from the underside.  Got the driver side fitted and bolted in it final location.  All that starts with "im going to mount the seats real quick..."  Pass side should go much quicker.  Not bad for $10 seats.

Fuel tank complete.  In tank pump and pickup.  Sending unit.  Gas filler connections.  Used the WIFI scope to verify the fitment/placement of the fuel pickup sock in the sump.

Ragtop frame is fitted.  Lots of work adding support to stiffen up the roof.  Got the header bracing done too.
That should be it for the roof fab.  Moving on to the interior panels.

Working out the doors. Started by seeing if i could get the door latch hardware to free up. Next was getting it mounted. With all the wood removed there is nothing to mount the door latch hardware to. Made up some internal brackets and got the latch and the inside/outside door handles mounted.  Next will be some bracing to stiffen the door and then some sheet metal the over top.

My plan was to plug weld the lower door panel on.  But after dropping a few screws inside the door I thought it might be nice to be able to remove the panel. Using 1/4-20 nutserts.
