Default What I Do on MY "lunch hours"

It's been about 14 months of "lunch hours" but this '39 coupe is finally done. This is the second '39 standard coupe I've done in the past five years. Both are 100% stock / authentic restorations.
Perhaps now I can devote more time to the '40 coupe and '40 convertible projects!
I'm tired...

Kube,what makes your restos win at the shows is the attention to detail...and the wisdom of Fords. Very nice in every way. Ken

With all that devoted time and result, would hope to see this one on a V8 times cover for next years 75th. The tenacious tone in your threads carries over into your work, very detailed indeed Kube.

With this coupe and Seth's P/U, I'm liking the blue on these 39's.

Kube, that's one heck of a nice looking lunch hour project! Beautiful job. Will that one be at Tahoe so we can see it up close?

Fantastic restoration, beautiful. It's really nice to see a car the way it was new. What do you do with it now?

That's a good looking coupe Kube. If we were closer I'd drive over for a photo shoot of your coupe and my pickup. Is that color Washington Blue?

Well done, take a nap then go out there and hit it. It's nice to see that there are still some out there with patience and the drive for perfection.

Awesome, your work is impeccable. Will that car be at Tahoe? Maybe while doing the 40s you will be able to use those projects as examples for the 40 book. Thanks for sharing those great pictures.
