Thanks guys.

Need to fix the driver's door skin (the current metal doesn't have the correct shape) and a couple small places in the wheel wells, then off to paint.  Gonna be very simple, but I'm really happy with the look.

This is the chassis for the tudor sedan I'm building.  Just about done.  Body to be painted this weekend.

Outside the paint really pops! (IMHO)

Well, finally some progress!  Body and chassis painted and assembled.  Engine/trans installed.  Windshield frame mocked up.  Gas tank, lights done.  Wiring just about done.
Working on installing rear quarter window channels.  The kit I purchased had NO directions.  Four pieces of channel - three different lengths - one has clips molded on.  What goes where?  Any directions, pictures, illustrations GREATLY appreciated!!

Almost complete!  All the glass installed.  Doors fit nicely.  Engine broken in and sounds good.  Going for interior in a week (I hope)...

When I bought the sedan project, the PO said the hood and grill insert were from his uncle's deuce roadster from the 60's.  I thought keeping the orange grill would be a nice tribute to a former hot rodder.  I like it against the maroon !

Great looking tudor; I bet you can't wait to get it on the road.   So what's up with the Anglia grille shell in the background ?

The sedan is at a buddy's hot rod shop.  He is currently working on a deuce roadster, a 35 (?) Buick coupe, a Henry 3-window and parts of an Anglia.
