1927/1928 Tourer body

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I’ve almost finished the engine and running gear so time to start on the body.  The body was in pretty good shape and solid with no rust but taking a look underneath some of the wood work looks like it’s been replaced and not very well.

 

Problem is I don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong so before I get too far in I wanted to see if anyone has anything similar on theirs - some pics below:

LHS bottom edge by door pillar - protruding like that doesn’t seem right to me but maybe that’s how they were?

LHS lower edge from front door looking forward - I would have thought the wood would fill out to the side?

LHS rear wheel arch area - seem to be a few bits of wood here that don’t look right.
