Got to spend some time with the Sled today. Decided to leave the rear of the car for a little bit and do some stuff up front.

I started out by finishing the filler strip necessitated by moving the windshield forward.



Then I figured I would get the roof welded down across the front header. Decided it would be nearly impossible to weld with the "visor" part of the roof still in place. So I cut it off and then was able to get the roof tacked to the front header.



I had to make a few relief cuts in the corners and do a little hammer work to get everything lined up and welded



I will definitely be adding the visor back on since I don't care for the look of the roof line with out it.



Then I spent a little bit of time working on the finishing of the c-pillar area of the roof. Lots left to do here.





That's all for now.

I did the same thing recently. Hard to believe it has been that long already. Although the vision has changed a little over all that time....

from this....



to this...

Went to a big hotrod/street rod car show and swap me today. Scored a couple of more bits for the Sled.

I picked up a very nice '49/'50 Ford Dash panel to be grafted in. I even managed to get all the cutting done to narrow it up to fit in the Sled. Had to take about 9-10" out of it total. Will try to get the final fitting and tack weld it together tomorrow.

I also picked up a decent, but surface rusty, 49 Mercury front bumper. Looks like it will work for either the front or the rear of the Sled. Not sure yet which end I want to put it on. This will have to be narrowed by something close to 2 feet to get it the right width for the Sled!! It will need some other mods to for it to work....but what on this car doesn't?

Sorry, but I left my camera with my girlfriend. Pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.

Sorry....no pics of the girlfriend....but I did get some pics of my new parts and the progress on grafting in the dash.

This is the 49-50 Ford Dash I picked up at the swap meet. Complete with glove box door and ash tray.



This is the dash after today's work...



Took out about an inch or so to the left of the large main gage bezel in order to get the gage centered on the steering column. Also took out about 4" on either side of the speaker grill to get the width right and save the grill and the clock location.



Clamped in the car.



I like it!



The edge of the dash matches up to the body quite nicely. I still need to remove the original Type 3 dash and get the new one fit in there and moved forward from the pictures. I will also have to make some new filler pieces between the dash and the windshield frame.

I also picked up this '49 Merc front bumper...



I am likely to use it on the rear of the sled. I want something a little more elaborate for the front.





I will have to significantly narrow the bumpers to get them even close.



and I will need to do some significant mods to get the sweep of the blade to match the rear of the vehicle the way I want it to. I am also thinking of eliminating the part of the blade under the towel bar and having the exhaust exit there.

More to come.

I know. I am such a copy cat. All these dang Volksrods are starting to look the same.

Thanks for the offer. I am going to stick with just the clock and a custom speedo/fuel gage, I think.

Spent some more time fitting the Ford Dash into the Sled tonight.

Started with this...





Spent some time out the old...



and then a bunch of time trimming and fitting the Ford dash and the body. Got it pretty close to where I want it. Little more to do and then I can get it welded in. Going to have to do a little bit of a steering column drop to get the steering wheel to gage bezel relationship better...
