Off with her head

We decided that the roof just was too far gone to use......






So, we decided to make it a convertible.....



Now, how is that for unique!!!  Pretty sweet, huh?!

APRIL FOOLS!

We actually are using the roof section from our parts truck - because it is framed in steel, where our 36 roof section was framed in wood.
See that door reveal?  So much better than the 36's!

 And the a-pillar - yes, yes!  OH how I wish we would have started this project with this 37 - we would have been SO much farther along!
 See how the 36 didn't have that a-pillar framing - BOO.  The hinges were even bolted to wood in the 36.  The 37 had MINIMAL wood - just on the upper corners of the roof section and along the back for bracing.  The 36 had it *everywhere* inside, even the floor by the door opening (the 37 is steel there).

We have the parts truck completely disassembled now - and ready for the engine to be removed.  I think we have a buyer for the chassis/title, which will be nice to get that out of the driveway!

Brian has a little fun with the fenders from the 37
 I think we will have to find another set of fenders for the back, hopefully in better condition - we need at least the drivers one to repair the 36's drivers fender


And, to reiterate, we did not do a ''chop'' - this is the stock height of the roof!  Chopped from the factory :)
