Buy a Hoosier set of wheels https://www.hoosierprofiles.com/complete-english-wheel-sets-.html and build the frame out of tube steel for an English Wheel and then learn how to fab a compound curve for that roof or find someone that knows what they are doing and build you a replacement roof panel. Those doors, try to find some new ones or parts of one to cut up and weld in.
Way past that, I have a Clayton for a friend.
Some how it came out side ways? But it looks like an English Wheel?
The plans to turn 4140 slugs in mandral wheels were from a DIY article in a old Street Rodder car magazine. More practice time is always good. Like saying buy a mig and your a welder? lol. Maybe for some? But hammer and dolly move metal as well. The English wheel is like a Plasma cutter. A person can do alot without them and for the money, more.
The roof with the bullet holes, that's mine, got it under control.
I'm working towards it. Just not working on it.
My doors as well have come along ways. 2 cars four doors.
After doing basically the same repair to two lefts and two rights, I had gotten pretty good at fixing.
Some time between tomorrow and June I'll try my hand at spreading lead. I was thinking, what I lack in metal working I make up for in welding ability. But I'm Improving.
Again, the Tudor sedan with a filled roof isn't my handymanship showing.
Funny how there are so many out there that look just like that under the paint?
