Snowing here so working in the shop today. Kinda made a mess of the lower rocker mock up but it told me what i need to do. Also with partial jambs i could take a sweep of the car. It's better flowing then the glass car.

So today i finished up mocking up the door jamb and hinges. The jamb is extra wide to bolt to the jig. I will trim it down when it comes back apart.
I'm using the 32 closed car hinges from united pacific that do not fit 3w. I'm doing a 4 hinge set up with the chopped roof instead of the 6 hinge set up for a stock height. I moved the RF hinge to the L back. Looks like they will work with some hammer mods. Built the jamb pockets etc. I doubt they would fit a stocker. Moving along!

I had to plow snow here for Clark County while you got to work on your project.
Your moving along nicely.
Always enjoy your updates.
Keep them coming and stay warm

You're make great progress. You should send me the fibreglass body when you're done I'd like to build a 32 at some point. And, thanks for sharing.

Today i made some door under structure out of 1" tube with some sweeping bends. Now i have a door that latches. Some fine tuning to do but good overall. Ray

Now that i have a swinging door frame i clamped the glass door on it to get the sweep of the lower rocker and start to build the sill. Having the glass body can be a blessing or a curse................Lot's of guessing and thinking..Name:  IMG_3877.jpg
