Probably best you don't know.

Saw an old street rod mag where a guy made a top skeleton from electrical conduit pipe, wired a screen to it, pad & cover.

These rainy days sure help my progress... The body is just about where I want it. Not perfect but good for this thing. Got a few more parts to color match , I started cleaning up the pan , and got the motor out ready to be cleaned up. Decided to just under coat with some bed liner stuff just to clean things up some , Gonna do the pan also with it.
