Roadsters

Make sure you share the inside top of that door.;)
The work that Jay Herbster did on these doors and cowl still amazes me. Many hours of work making these inside pieces, and welding them in place, so there wouldn't be a "see through gap" where the door meets the cowl. And then he leaded all this before I finished it off with a tight skim of filler, and none of this is visible when the doors are closed. But when the doors are open, it looks like it that was the way Henry Ford made it. Door jam 1.jpg Door jam 3.jpg

What a cool detail. That's what makes your roadster stand out.
