Happy Birthday B-O-B. Love your 1934 Ford Roadster. Do I detect an early 1933 rear fender on this car, the ones without the "skirt", or am I seeing things?

Here is a picture of a very early 1933 "skirtless" rear fender. The more that I look at the Roadster, I think that the rear fender on B-O-B's car is the correct one with the "skirt". It just looks like it didn't have one? My mistake.

Happy Birthday Bob. Surfaced heads and skimmed block. That'll stack up and give you that valves playing kissy kissy with the heads problem. Might need a little local spot facing.
Mart.

J M 35 sedan I wanted something really dark & this is what they (paint shop) made so no name on it. I do have the formula. Paint is acrylic single stage enamel. Looks really dark in the right lighting. Would have still wanted a darker paint but had some applied & too lazy to redo it & have it darker.
