Well, here is my completed 34ish Ford Coupe convertible for the engine I previously posted, no plans used at all just drew out the shapes cut and adjusted sizes as needed. The front rack in pinion was functional until a clamp feel on it. I think it turned out okay. I used walnut, ash, cherry and pine (front grill has pine only scrap I could find with straight grain pattern) I traced the doors out with a pencil then went over them lightly with a straight blade. As always all comments are welcome good or bad.

Outstanding choice of woods! Looks great, concerning it’s made without plans. I like that motor displayed without engine cover.

Great job STM.

I’m no nitro sniffer, but, do you need steering for a linear drag race?... Don’t think you should fret… even in the bottom shot (pic #3) I couldn’t see any clamp damage!

PS. That’s why I keep telling everyone there’s no justification for clamps in a workshop...
