« Part 162: Starting on the motor for the coupe Part 163 of Toy Construction series Part 164: 34 coupe Put in the time but not much progress today »

It’s finally starting to come together after power outage and snow.
Still have a way to go with the frame but can now see what need to be done.

Got a feel for the bonnet and radiator cover.

Lets see what the motor would look like without a cover.

You can see here where the radiator will fit in the cover.

And a look at the underneath.

Ducky I may be putting the fenders on it so will need a smooth transition from cab, frame and radiator.
The bonnet if used will be cut up to show all that work I put in the motor. LOL

Notice I deliberately haven’t mentioned TRACKS, #4! Then again, maybe you missed it so again I won’t mention TRACKS.

You know it’s all your fault I’m building this hot rod, I saw your motor and just had to give it a try.

That is looking good. Just need to hinge the bonnet so you can open to see engine.
