Thanks JR!
Funny how that is. Just having glass in the sides makes me anxious to get the rest the glass in. I really want to start driving this car, even before paint, but a windshield is a big deal to doing that. It's the only piece of clear glass also. I went with the light smoke on all the rest of the glass.

I thought you were staying out of the garage to recover for a while?
Hint: get the pre-bent Fuzzies. On a 55-57 Chevy, swapping out windows and fuzzies is a pretty easy job. Just curious is all.

Vall great to see you back at it . When focused "The Power Of An Hour" is a line I always refer to. Much can be done when heart and soul is into the build. God Bless, Greg.

I have the pre-bent fuzzies, sitting on the workbench.......glass is my next upgrade........thanks.
Vall, I'm with you on getting back. After my first heart attack, doctor told me I couldn't do anything for 90 days. 3 weeks later, I was digging post holes..........

Thanks Greg! I've always tried to keep busy in general as I can't seem to sit still much. And I've tried to do a little something on my projects as often as possible, as a little bit often turns into hours without even noticing them pass.

I do try to listen to the doctors too, but if I'm feeling great it's tough to not do something. I think most of it is common sense and just not pushing too hard until your body tells you it can handle it.
I felt bad for so long that it is great to feel normal again!

Something must have relaxed with our state rules as no line outside Home Depot today when I got there. Walked right in and bought two sheets of panel board to make my interior panels out of.
I made paper patterns for the doors, 1/4 panels, and kick panels, and traced them on the panel board. Then cut them out with a jigsaw and drilled holes for door cranks.
Pretty quick job, and no fitment issues. I'll eventually cover them in the diamond pattern once I get the carpets in. I need to make some sort of a filler panel before I do carpet to fill in two small drops between front seats and rear floor panel. It will cover this area where the floor drops down on both sides of the driveling tunnel:



Just about 18"-20" long each, and maybe 5"-6" wide. But if I fill it the carpet will be much easier to install. So need to decide what to use, and how to install it. Doesn't need a lot of strength as nobody will be standing on it. Maybe just a piece of sheet metal all the way across, and attached to the wood covered platform, and the floor?

Found a place in Oklahoma City that sells both original style headliners, and perforated newer style vinyl headliners. The newer style are about $100 cheaper, and will go better with my interior plan, so ordered one from him off Ebay. Had a little glitch with Ebay as I typed in "1939 Chev coupe", but in typical Ebay fashion it brought up the headliner, and after hitting the "buy" button it read, "1939-40 Ford"!!! Crap!
I called the guy and he said no problem, he'd fix it on his end and send the correct Chevy headliner.

Dug out an old JVC stereo my daughter gave me when she bought some new whiz bang unit for her car. Cut the blank I made for the radio cover and installed the stereo in it. Then dug out speakers I bought for my Falcon and never used, and cut holes for them in the trunk divider.
Just need to get warmer weather to glue up my door panels and install carpet, and then install the headliner that will be here next week. Meantime I can pull out the bows and clean and paint them so they're ready to use. Thank goodness all the bows were there! I never even checked until just today!

70 degrees here today, and perfect weather for a drive, and car projects! So took the Austin on a 35 mile drive, and then when I got home I went to work on the '39 Chevy.
I cleared out the interior and sprayed black paint on all the jams and pillars, so when my headliner arrives I'm ready to install it. Then wiped down the floors, and began fitting the black carpet. It was close when I measured it, and by the time I finished all I had left was a handful of little pieces!





Next I'm going to start covering the panels I built for the divider and side panels.





Have two more 6"x 9" tri axial speakers on order for the divider panel. so will need to cut holes for those also once they arrive, and before I cover the back panel.
