Thanks mate, but I think Wayne would have nightmares if we continue to suggest we make a 40 standard out of his old girl

Both rear inners on the 39 now finally tacked in, and the rear radius trimmed back to suit the body/fender profile. The final oxy weld up on these are going to be left for a while, as we start to sort out the rear sections of the cars as they meet the tailpan.

Just taking a bit of time out and letting the mind drift a little on how it looks.
I took this shot of the 39 from inside the 40 trunk area.

Heres the cut and install on the 40's LHS rear inner fender well.
These are going in a LOT, LOT quicker than Wayne's

Then the RHS on the 40 gets the treatment also.
Nothing nicer than new shiny metal to look at.

Well, this was waiting for us next.
Doesn't look too good, but what the heck.

Because of the scarcity of 39/40 cars and parts cars down here, and the fact that none of the reproduction businesses are bothered with making a repop of this lower qtr panel we went about making our own.
I got frustrated that time is flying by fast and I wasn't prepared in waiting till hell froze over, before one of them got their act together.

So what we did, we grid patterned out the best of the various panels and a remains of a whole rear lower section of a 38 that Wayne had, and made up both vertical and horizontal template patterns in the making up of timber bucks for both the LH and RH sides.
You can see in the picture the remanents of the grid pattern on the RHS of the 39 quarter.

Got to say a big thanks to Wayne here as he put a lot of blood, seat and tears in getting the bucks ready for me.
After a bit of fine tuning and a couple of re-runs spread over a couple of years because of my jolly's around the world, we finally had them ready for the first sample run out of the english wheel.

Tom's gone off to recharge his batteries, he gone to sun his buns in paradise.

Though we got the 4 rear lower panels made up and readied for trial fit up. Pics coming shortly.

Been a while between the posts, but have to say holidaying in paradise is better than cutting rust out.

So, here is a few pics of the rear sections getting some fine tuning and then being fitted up with the clecos.
Then we made up some dies out of a old door hinge and strap pieces to hand form the holes for the bumper irons.
We made up some hard wood timber drive tools to turn the edges of the panel whilst the die was clamped into position on the rear panels.

Here is the very basic die/clamp that we made up.
The only stress area that we were concerned with was right at the top of the dog kennel shape area.
We simply clamped the die into position then we applied small passages of heat into the top area and then, with our fantastic timber driver worked the edges over without tearing the metal.
A simple set of tooling,,and our panel turned out really good.

Then trimmed and tacked in, looking good at this time.
What a difference from the old crappy rotted out piece to that new one.

I will be posting up some pics of a repair, that had been in the wings for a long, long time.

Basically the whole back window section had been rotted out.
And only way possible was to replace the whole section.

A dear friend, gave me a replacement back window section that came from a 40 sedan in a place called Cowra, that he had salvaged many years back.
Fast forward a few years and with the car travelling with me back and forth overseas, the only thing I could get achieved was to measure up the planned install and trim up the new insert.
So after all the gap years I managed to re-start on the install, whilst Wayne and I were fixing the rear sections on the cars.

So, stay tuned, I will post up shortly the install stages of the rear window.

This is how the back window looked when I bought the car.
