“I wired the whole car from scratch using cloth-covered wiring and asphalt wire loom. After I made all the interior panels and the seat I called Brook from Titletown Upholstery over to the shop. I drew lines where I wanted pleats and seams, picked the right color white, and he had it all back to me in two days. Randy Rosera (the guy with the orange ’55 Chevy) cut some laminated glass for my windshield. I picked up some old aircraft seatbelts and I was ready to hit the road.
“I sold my Hemi coupe to a big collector shortly after it was featured in R&C. I’m going to enjoy driving the roadster this summer, and then it’s back to the shop to start a new build. I’ve got two projects waiting for me to start: a ’31 A coupe and a ’34 Ford truck. I’m also doing metalwork and early Ford hot rod builds for customers.”
Don’t forget fighting fires in-between, Rob! We look forward to meeting again—very shortly—on your next build.
