Re: Problems with windshield hitting gastank

If it fit before the new header... then yes, sounds like you have to trim the wood. In my case, I was assembling a new header with a windshield that I assumed was for a 1930 Model A. Same issue,...

Re: 30/31 Pickup body wood patterns

I’m past the wood stage. I found a guy who would sell me just the pieces I needed - rear upper cab brace, wood inside the door jams. Let me know if you want his name.

Re: CCPU Windshield and header panel - wrong?

Iíll do a test fitting when the paint drys. The header is being a real PIA on the paint process.

I may have to buy some additional fender felt too.

Thanks for the tip !

I donít have a very good way to hang the items - and from my experience in painting the Visor - it starts moving, and becomes pretty hard to control. Like Pop says, itís easier to paint it flat.
