Lookin' Good so far! Keep on going! I have a soft spot for the As, as I've worked on them for so many years.
Is it a Briggs, or Murray body?

It had an allstate.
All the original parts have been sold off. This is going to be a highway cruiser.
A street rod that will have a stock looking appearance.

Tackling the roof rails and ribs.
Rails are made of ash.
Roof ribs are oak.
Wanted to beef up the ribs from original.(3/4x3/4).
So I laminated 4 - 1/4" x 1 1/4" oak slats.. Used an existing rib for the radius and a laser and measured a thousand times+ to get the proper arch.

Not enough clearance for the rear end.
Need to change out the original rear cross member.
