Greeting I thought I'd introduce myself here. I'm Keith Mowbray from Oak Harbor, Washington on Whidbey Island and I'm building a Duke kit car that I inherited from my Dad who was getting a little too older to finish the kit. He basically finished the motor and drivetrain and gave me the rest of the parts and body in boxes. I'm currently putting the body togeather and at step 101 in the assembly manual. It took me awhile but I eventually located the front support bracket for the front end. I'm glad I did because it showed me that the radiator my dad installed was too wide and I had to cut off the side flanges of the radiator to get the front engine sides to fit on the front support bracket. I've had a few doubts about the alignment of the dash cowl that sits on the door side panels. I got the hood out to see how it fits and have the front of the dash cowl flush with the front of door side panels and very back of the engine side panels but the back of the dash cowl sits out and hangs over the door side panels where the suicide doors close. Oh well I'll post some pics and ask some questions as a go along here.
