Default Pauls track roadster

One project brought to MM/11 was doors for the track roadster in this post.

Plywood pattern and templates were made off of the body. The plan was to leave a 3/4 in flange front and rear and enough metal to fold an 1 1/4 in bottom flange and some turned up and lipped for an inner structure. the front and rear are angles with a similar lip for an inner panel. Welding is accetylene tacks in the jambs with seam sealer between.
Hinges are '50 Ford trunk hinges for a old timey look.

Some pictures as well as the fish made by my daughter Cindi at MM/11.

Progress on the roadster has been mostly non metal shaping, however there were some trim bubbles around shock linkage and steering shaft.
Also I finally finished the nose with paint so that I can assemble the radiator and put water in engine. It feels to see a finished panel after years.

I really like the details around the steering gear and the shock arms. Looking good.
