Roof Fill

Hi, I have a 1935 Chevrolet Standard Coupe that I want to fill the roof on. I'm looking for some help on what would be a good donor and tips from some of you that may have already done this job. Thanks, Jim M

Jim, I've never done a chev but I have done a few fords of that vintage and they were sedans. The coupe should be easier since it's smaller. What I did was make two cardboard templates to verify the contour needed. One template went with the centerline of the roof from front to back and the other went from side to side in the center. I then took the cardboard to the salvage yards and checked roofs untill I found the one with the best match for contour. Some people use roofs with ribs for more strength but I like the smooth look. I would think finding a donor roof skin with a suitable contour for your coupe shouldn't be a problem with all the smaller cars now-they all have a good crown to them. Bob
