morning wood

drove over to loweseagledepothomeclub and got a sheet off 3/4" plywood.
I just felt like making some sawdust.
And mock up work is fun on the roadster.
Will most likely build a steel floor when the time is right.

next thing is to trim out the rear wheel wells.Cuz the body ain't sitting flat yet.
bought cabinet grade plywood-damaged sheet was cheap
couple short screws from underneath to hold steady
trying out some old Ford bits for size
I think the seat riser will work with the mini van seat
yeah I do realize that the driveshaft needs to connect to the rear

Here's what it reminded me of. This is a "race car" to me.Stuck in my head since 1968..
