(These two pics show the re-worked wheel wells in place and the "new" rear floor pan, scrounged from a sedan parts car.)

Next, we scrounged some sedan wheel wells that were in good shape, and put the "dent" back in the top of them. These will allow the top mechanism some extra room when folded back into the top well . . . again just like Hudson did it.

2nd pic has the rear floor pan in place, spot-welded back in. Look closely and you can see the old cowl has yet to be removed, along with the front floor pans.

Looks like a fine restoration job to someone that has been there and done that several times. Keep up the good work and you will be rewarded with a terrific and valuable car. Dave Sollon

It looks fantastic, lots of work and lots of love showing in that car. Sounds like you've had a great time restoring it. Kat Wortham

This is excellent! I'm kind of in the same spot as you (one car has a good frame, one car has a good body) and I'm debating how to get them apart. It looks pretty straight forward ( as far as removing bodies can be!
