    be careful, once started i got a bit obsessed with ss button head bolts on my anglia gasser and used them even where you couldn't see them.
    or is that my OCD?
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Already there! All of the screws on the car are SS cap/head, button head or CS whether you can see them or not. I've actually got more $ in nuts & bolts than I have in the engine!

    Behind the front trim panel I've drilled larger holes so that the rivets that hold the trim to the door card won't interfere with the panel sitting flat.



    At the back of the door card, these hand-joddled brackets hook inside the door frame to keep everything neat and tight. I've allowed enough gap to wrap the trim material around the card.



    On the outside of the panel the countersunk rivets will (hopefully) not show through the rim material.



    "Trim material?" I hear you exclaim. Yes, there will be some, maybe all, material trim coverage on the door cards.

    You'll be pleased to know (I'm sure I am) that this will be the last post on the doors for a while as they are, essentially, complete.



    The original wooden window frame trims have been retained, and thinned to allow smooth operation of the door release handles. Small shaped 'escutcheon' panels cover the mechanism. These will only be fully riveted in once the door cards are 100% complete and finished.





    So there we have it. Far too many hours. Far too much material wasted. Far too much welding but at last they are ready to go back on the car.



    I still have to make a decision on colour/texture of the trims and window surrounds, but I know they won't be 'baby nappy brown'!

    "Screamer. You know you are a screamer" sang pop group Supertramp on their 1974 album 'Crime of the Century'. At least I thing that's what they sang.
    Anyhoo, screamers. As it looks like the draconian certification system here in NZ is going to prevent the 'reaper from being (legally) on the road I've decided to go with open screamers (wastegate dump pipes).
    These are all in Stainless-steel.
    They are slightly different as the drivers' side pipe has to miss the steering arm.

    Blimey, nearly two months since I last posted here.
    No, I haven't died.
    I've been beavering away on my many projects, including the 'Reaper.
    There are quite a few sub-projects happening on the old '38 at the moment, none of which are photo/story worthy until I've got them totally sorted.
    However, whilst I was underneath today with a TIG in one hand and a hammer in the other (!) I snapped this photo:



    Kinda cool with gearbox, axle, exhaust, undertray and clutch cylinder (just) in the photo, and demonstrates to me the work that's already been done.
    Now I can't wait to get it complete and painted, though the boss' doorslammer may have other ideas.......

    Same here, man. I'd love to see your ride on the road. Look, I'm not sure about your exact wheel size, but if ever you're planning to go for a modded build, might as well check out the amazing lineup of wheels from 4WheelOnline, to add flair to your build.
