A few more things done:  instruments, dash, column, wheel and turn signal.  Really pleased with the exhaust - Jet Hot did an excellent job!

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

Sure looks good, what was your grill treatment.?
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

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 ?

Yes, it does look good against the maroon. Thanks for the update.

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.

Thanks for all the kind words.   Yes, I am really happy with the way it is turning out.  I've been building this in my head for a long time!
