Awesome Kube, I'm just getting started on my 36 Cabriolet so I could definitely use some pointers!

I can't match your workmanship. No how, no way.

Okay guys... THANKS for all of the (too) kind messages.
I'll start the thread ASAP. I have no doubt a lot of it will be akin to watching paint dry. The "fun' part to me is when stuff starts going back together. That'll be quite a while.

Wow! That looks like a great car to start with. Is it as solid as it appears? Fairly complete? Are you planning a concourse type restoration?

Kube, Yes, its complete, even has matching serial on frame and tranny. I will restore to like original as best I can. My skills allow me to achieve what I call an "amateur' restoration. May try to do better with this one though.

I am just beginning a ground up, concourse restoration on a '40 Ford Business coupe.
So, the question is (kind of a poll), "who might enjoy this?"
Mind you, it (the restoration) will take approximately one year.
Any chance you could document it with a GoPro? Easy to use, edit and post. If you don't have one, the early ones, 3 Hero, are cheap enough on e-bay.

I am in. Thanks, Mike.

You could actually make this into a book showing what's entailed in each part of a restoration.

Such as: exterior, frame and chassis, drive train, interior, wiring, glass, suppliers, etc.
