    In response to gmann

I did on my 32 sports coupe.
I could not afford the wood kit so i took each piece and traced it as best as I could. Some of the pieces were almost falling apart, so i did the best I could.
Wood doesnt show, so sometimes I used plywood, (very strong). The rest I used the cheaper hard wood, got some good hard from pallets!
sometimes I did not return a certain piece or 2, there was no adverse effect, no problems. I also noticed that if a piece or 2 didnt get sanded or didnt have the true shape, they fit well any way.
It really isnt an exact science, fit the best you can and move on, it all holds together well. I assembled a small section at a time so as not to disturb the whole anatomy of the skeleton.
