The ’36 Coupe sheet metal fab work is nearing completion.
Time to tackle the dreaded . . . hole in the roof.
We had to cut the hole in the roof even larger to clean-up the edges and make it straight. We took some new 20 gauge steel and put it on the template, added an extra half-inch for the step around edges, and now it has a flush fit.
The roof panel needed support so we bent up some half-inch Chrome Molly tubing. We shaped the tubing into place, welded tabs onto the body so that the tubing had a landing pad for the roof frame to be attached.
