To line the cowl, I will take the position of the doors as a startingpoint.Made shore that their nicely leveled.Now I can draw a line on the frame where the cowl must come.Pic three shows that I'll have to chanel the cowl a bit to let it meet the bottom of the doors.Perhaps you've already noticed that the frame rails are wider than the front of the cowl.I've did this on purpose,this way I
have more room for my pedals (and feet,ofcourse)
I took some time today to look a little closer to my cowl. That's quiet inventive thinking what those designers did back then.
It may seem strange to you but this is the first '31 cowl I've seen
in the flesh (so to speack).I've mentioned earlier that there's not much of a hot rod scene around here.There fore most of what I've seen comes out of mags and the internet...What's this on the first picture?Looks like a looking glass to me to check if there's gas in the fueltank.Am I right?
Anyway,time to start lining the thing out.
My cowl arived today. Offcourse I couldn't waith to see how it looks on the car,made a quick mock-up. Looks good. The cowl is suprisenly solid,just some surface rust, no holes.
There's a huge dent on the passenger side,but that will be fixed.
Third pic shows the beginning of a shaft/rear axle support I'm building. There was a thread some time ago on this site, consurning the fact if this support would work (or not) on the car.
As soon as I'm ready with this support I will post more pics of it and explain how genius this little piece is.
