I wanted to begin my build of my Dad's first car, his 1949 2 door sport coupe. This car has been in my family since new. She is in rough shape after sitting in a car shed since 1992.

Picked up some materials today to construct a body rotisserie. I will have it ready when the body comes off the frame.

I had to cut the bolts holding the front seat in. They were rusted away.

I also removed some of the patches in the floor pan.
