What I was eluding to is maybe theres a sedan roof out there you could splice with minimal seams. You're right, it needs something back there because stovepipe hats are out.

I made a pass through the skunkworks-









This is what I've got going on-

The blue Model A is something I might get to do rust repair on.
The blue VW, I did not work on.
The green Bronco I did new cab floor and a bad nasty fix on the roof.
The green 52 Chevy, I did not work on.
The bare metal pics are behind the right rear wheel on my 59 Pontiac job.
The red Mustang convertible, I did not work on.

This day's work was alright. One side is as done as its gonna be until meats are mounted. This is pretty solid but mighty tough to take decently lit pics of. Hinge pocket is intact but support bracket got one side lopped off. Another panel will close off the trimmed area, just a flat plug welded piece with a flange on one end to meet the inner panel. That big one goes all the way up to the shelf and ties in with another layer plus the upright diagonal tube from the floor frame.

But yeah those are rust throughs at the top of the well where the roof rail connects. I'll cook something up but in the meantime theres a side left to go and all but the rear panel (3 outta 4 pieces) have been cut and roughly shaped. Can you tell I actually used the english wheel in a context approaching proper, on the rear panel? Gave 'er a little lump. I'd like to get the driver's side looking like this tomorrow plus take the body off and try to finish whatever welding is left that I couldn't get to with the body mounted.

My heads ringin and my feets hurt. But I am pleased with the work. If theres a question, shoot. Kind of a mouthful to explain it all but the pic shows things pretty good.

Oh, how I wish there was a vacation in between the old and new projects.

The ability to just keep rocking is a test of my automotive passion. That being said, I'd rather wade through this Model A than bondo. This is the new scenery, guys. Might even qualify as a rod of some sort!

Did not get an end of day pic but of course I fell short of the goal... still have to step edges and prep the rear panel. Wasn't for lack of hurrying though, I did do that every chance I got. The trunk floor corner piece is ready and both it and the rear panel are screwed in so I'm not off by far, and will continue on it tomorrow. This was at oh, 3:30. Inner wheelwell and rear lower extension are welded up.

Right on. Anyone have some experience with Model A's? Advice and explanations could be helpful here, I am a GM muscle enthusiast and green as grass about early Fords.

If I run across something specific I'll make an appropriately titled thread so it blips the rodder radar. Reckon my first question is are the doors supposed to fit within the door opening or over it.

Proof I lifted body off Pontiac below. There wasn't much welding left to do under there which is good because I finished what I set out to do. Put the body back down and stuck bolts in but ran out of time getting all the hardware back on. Works for me as a stopping point. The epoxy man is eager to get it going and it is ripe for that.

That would be a bit of a task to do as you would have to hack away. Mine are happy with just going over the opening.
