Welcome to the site macloudd. That sounds like a great project that should be documented in the Project Journals. Please start one so we can see where you are at and follow along with the build. There is a lot of interest as you have probably noticed in building your own frame and several members are thinking about building there own bodies or at least using original cowls and building the rest. This would be a perfect project for them to be able to follow. Good luck with the build.

Thanks for the pics. Looks like it will be quite swoopy. I think that modified T tub/bucket is going to be very interesting. Did I understand you right that it will be a Woodie? Will the body be all wood or?

I am going to form birch plywood over the skeleton,then finish it in mahogany,and trim it out with blond finish birch wood.Its going to be real interesting when I have to soak and form the trim.
