Today it is super hot almost 100 deg. so this summer I added a new face in my- living room , garage, hobby-room.  It is powered to rotate while on, I have a lot of coolers and this one is sure to be my #1 and is super quiet you could still hear a pin drop in the room while it is running .2139944712_20180611_184000_HDR-11.jpg.53912cd2934cadfada5212395a12c37e.jpg

Been reading sligermachine forums wood topics. I have a 26 Buick Standard 4dr and like everyone else the wood is bad. You mentioned that you had paper patterns. I’m hoping the bottom body frame and cowl patterns would work for my sedan. Most of the rear body is intact and I can copy that. Do you think you could help or know anyone who could. Be happy to buy patterns it would sure make it easier. This was my dads car he bought in 63. My name is Herb. Thanks
