Got the door braceslast week so I could weld in the supports, and they sent the wrong damn braces :evil: :evil: :evil:






Screw it, got bored and did up a seat back:






Found a little motivation and started to get the pan built up. Still have a lot of little parts to paint.

Brake shoes fit like shit and the drums need to be turned but got a shot with the wheel on!

Hello Joe, how are you? Sorry for the invasion, I am the former owner of the second set of wheels pictured here, I do not know if the man who sold you went about it, Titânio is the brand, the model is Vênus, were manufactured in Rio de Janeiro / Brazil in the 1960s. I am of Barueri, a city in São Paulo, Brazil.

I took the liberty of posting two pictures of my car with him, okay?




And great to know that the wheels are in good hands, because I like them very much, I will follow your topic.

Congratulations on the car, is a beautiful example and is extremely rare in Brazil.

Big hug from Brazil!

Pan should be done this weekend, got all my rear brake stuff and bearing seals in. Trans in done and going in the car tomorrow. Hope to have the body back on next week!



My daughter has been by my side 100% of the time I have been working on this car! She is a handful!!!



Got a new handle and ignition keyed to match the glove box, trunk, and decklid! 1 key 5 locks!!!!!!!!!! :D
