Nice job. I wish I could help with the picture but that would mean that I would have an A to photograph. Now there's a thought that makes me smile.

Thanks for sharing with us. I really like your flip up cowl. What are you going to use as a sealer around the edges?

I've seen old footage of the Ford factory with Model A's on the assembly line, and it seems that main adjustment tool was a rubber hammer. Thanks for posting your build--nice to be able to observe fine craftsmanship.

both fenders now fit nice ,even had to modify apron nose gap, welded the original fenderstrut holes ,





I'm thinking about reworking the front of the fenders so it wil blend in more nicely with the splash apron, what do you think?

It works for me. Not that much more work, and will make it smoother.

Those are the type of body modifications that look the best . The type that are not immediately noticeable.I like to think of what you have done with the fender as 'refining the shape'.You have not made the car look different,just visually cleaner or more refined.Nice work!
