Getting close on the drivers side

A little more blending today, trying my best to find Tjaarda's lines again. The body lines on these cars are just plain beautiful and even if I am creating some of my own, I can't disregard the art.

I like to think that what I am creating is what Tom Tjaarda would have, if he was not constrained by the nessecity of mass production.

More slow progress

What's the old saying?
When I have time, I have no money and when I have money I have no time...
Yea, busiest time of the year and still working like crazy. I have managed a hour here and there but progress is slow.
I have been working my way back up the drivers side, replacing the door handle section, welding in the old mirror holes,
Cutting out and replacing some rust areas in the door bottom.
Today I finished the welding and laid on some body filler. Put it on, sand it off...

This work stuff is really becoming a problem.

I did get out to the garage for a bit yesterday and stripped some more old paint. I got another seam welded up and tapped out a few more dents. Not too much more to strip which is great since it is a very messy job.
