Yes Jack, the front crossmember has been painted. When we started work on this car, we had considered painting it all as we went. Well, since we had not taken it apart, and had no diagrams for rebuilding, we really needed the "footprints" that showed us where some of the parts went.
It is a nice original, and we will enjoy it for a while as such. We have tried to put upholstery tacked in. Be nice to take to our little home town show next month and park next to the wonderful restorations some of our neighbors have to share. Maybe next year or so we will take it apart and start over. At least we will know what goes where!
We have a '31 Ford T roadster pickup that was supposed to be finished first. Have to get back to it.
I am the official chrome polisher and car waxer. Got a decent shine on it!

Sure looks like some nice, solid pieces to work with- enjoy!
