rewooding moon roadster


Recommended Posts

need some advise from someone who knows about rewooding these cars,i have a 27 moon roadster

all the wood needs replaced,i know ash is supposed to be the best but i hear that the wood platform and the area around the top of the body where the roadster top attaches should be oak,anyone know which is right,my woodworking skills are a little no alot rusty so i was going to do it first in some cheap pine then reproduce it in ash or oak,any ideas on finding inexpensive ash,ive shopped a little and its very expensive,thought if i did it first in pine id make less mistakes with the more expensive stuff,thanks again dave
