    Russ suggested heating the whole shop up also. He said make it as warm as I could handle it and still work in there. Then he said I could also carefully direct heat under the hood if I had a small...

    When I have to choose between working on my cars, or cleaning the work area, the cars usually win out. Then it gets where I start tripping over things and work goes too slow, so I stop and do a deep...

    Went back to VFN's site to look again and it's not an Anglia afterall, it's a '37-'38 front end. I'm unsure where they get the idea it will also fit a 1939 as the dimensions of the '39 are totally...

    That's a '39 you linked, but it's a one piece steel welded together, so not like mine. The other you linked that says it's a '37, but fits '38-'39 is an Anglia frontend, so a bit small for my '39...

    Thanks Mario. I think that cutting the brace off the inside would allow the fiberglass to relax and the sides would then drop down to align. But I'm not sure if that isn't overkill? It might be that...

    Wouldn't it be nice to have one of those monster sized shops where we could store 6 cars, and have room to work on 6 more? Getting things done in tight quarters isn't much fun.
