Looking good GRTfast. And you've put together a nice journal of your build as well. I'm looking forward to watching your progress.

That's pretty neat. I have known a few guys who built a similar car where they started with just the frame, or just a bare body with no doors or anything. My brother built a beautiful "restored" 1948 Harley 45 starting with just the cases, the bare cases bought at a swap meet. Bought every single part on the bike from a different place, ebay and the like.
There are lots of ways to get around the initial cost of a car.

Very cool..
But I don't think it fall into a scratch built car.. Using factory made panels,, All the car in this thread are hand made from nothing,, No factory panels was used..Not try to come off hard about it..Please don't take that the wrong way..

I didn't want to come off hard about this,,,but building any car is the same in many ways,, BUT !!!! When making a quarter panel from nothing, Or a frame from tubing,, All right out of your head,,, Well ...I see that a little different,,

The car he is building, Is hands down a great job..There's no changing that,, But he was able to start with something,,

I wanted to put this thread together not to keep people out,, But to push more people into getting ideas of building a homemade car from scratch..

By having just home made cars in this threat, Or a book,, It's a place for ALL the homemade cars to be for people to see,,

half scratch

On the nash roadster I started with just the quarter panels, took a street rod fabrication class at UVU, I had to make the deck lid, lower back panel upper back panel, cockpit wrap around panel, then My son found a cowl south of Bonneville in the desert. braced the body with tubing. He found another pair of quarters of unknown make-year for $ 30.
