  1. And here we have the original small tank mounted behind the rear seat prior to removal. We then cut out the fabricated floor (seemed a shame!) then made a new section at the striker end and the final shot is trial fitting the new drop in alloy tank I had made. Hopefully we will have new filler sorted out and the tank finished later this week. The last few weeks have seen pretty good progress at last.
  2. Here's a couple of photos from the filler removal and returning the panel back to original;
  3. The trim arrived this morning, Thanks again Andy for your help on this, it should do the trick!
  4. Thanks Andy, I will give you a call! I noticed this on a Windsor convertible that could be an option too.
  5. Here’s a few shots of the mouldings on the car.
  6. Thanks Andy, I will get a photo or two and post them up here of the mouldings I have. There a lot of original items the car is missing sadly.
  7. Been a while since I have posted, about to get stuck into a few more jobs on this in coming weeks main things will be to source a dash to match the cluster and find the trim that is on the cowl. Bodywork wise I am removing the filler that was previously fabricated into the top of the rear 1/4 and finding a better fuel tank solution than the one fitted inside the trunk. The rear guards also need some final touches along with the trunk lid prior to paint. All new glass is on it's way and in coming weeks I hope to tick a lot more off the list.
  8. Here's a better shot of the mockup, I will make a new panel and keep hunting a surround to suit.
  9. HI Andy, yeah I won't be throwing any of the bits I'm taking off away, the wheel is a new Moon wheel along with a heap of other gear that came with the car, all destined to go on a friends Willys Coupe Chassis.
  10. IF anyone has a lead on a 41 cluster surround please let me know, and a good steering wheel for a 40 that would be appreciated.
  11. Cluster has arrived safely and is a bit of an improvement, now to modify the dash to suit and find/make a surround. Steering wheel may also be changed out if I can find a suitable one.
  12. Here's how the dash had been modified.
  13. Been a bit slack with my updates of late, haven't spent a lot of time on the car lately due but now back into it again. A couple of things I am hunting for are the body trims for the cowl section, I have all the trims for the bonnet, doors and rear quarter panels. The other thing I really need is dash parts to suit a 1941 Chrysler, mainly the instrument surround as I have tracked down a mint instrument cluster which is a big improvement over the aftermarket gauge set that came with it. Otherwise I now fully stripped the body and are working through tidying up a few small bits of bodywork left and setting up the tri power on the 318 Poly. Next step will be to get a tailshaft made up and a fuel tank made. Given I am more going for a custom look rather than the street rod style I am thinking of going to steel rims with full size caps so I rolled the car out of my garage at the weekend to get a preview by flicking some caps on the Cragars currently on the car.
  14. Yeah most were from Car Guys garage but they disappeared a while ago sadly.
