1st attempt at Tin work- the top Header
The Auburn's original body was a wooden structure that the metal 'skins' were nailed to. Woodworking to recreate this is beyond my skill and tool set. As this car is not 'numbers matching', or especially rare, I decided to make the new structure using steel tubing. I connected the Cowl and Windshield posts to the "B" pillar using a piece of 1.5 x 2.5 square tube.(not shown) The piece below covers that area, which was originally wood.
