I had a message from a viewer who wanted to see the whole car instead of closeups, so I stuck the fenders on it as it stands today. These photos are taken as far away as I can get from the car; it's not mobile right now, so I'm constricted to the garage.

I trimmed the ends of each piece to fit and tacked each into place. I am happy with the result; the arches appear uniform, even if hand-made.

Continued working on the hood frame. The hood needs to be slightly arched to match the lower edge of the windshield. I used a piece of 1/4 inch bar to duplicate the windshield edge and measured the amount of rise at the center. I used a piece of pipe in the vise to serve as a fulcrum for the bends in the 1/2 inch square tubing. I used marks on a piece of masonite to track the uniformity of the bends on each of six pieces of square tubing.

Worked some more today on the hood frame. First, I rolled the edge of the grille shell with a hammer and dolly. The edge is arched, so I cut and bent square tubing to match the arch. It's all tacked now. We'll see how it comes out when it's welded completely.

Started working on the hood frame today. Since I have no tool to bend square tubing, I have to resort to the cut and weld method. Man, that heat shrinkage is a bear to handle.
