I voted A. Looks like you built most of it, if not all so you might as well continue.

I think the picture on the left is the custom frame that is 4" shorter and its growing on me.

Pros- looks cool and the brass can be given an antique patina
Cons Expensive, head still may stick over the top and can't add a hood later

Anybody use either of the speedway screens? please post pictures

I went with the chopped off stock windshield. That's what I would have done when I was young.

but that car really needs knuckle guards. Just a half moon shaped piece of lexan (or glass) in front of the driver and let 'er fly.

I'll second that. I have to remind my 16 year old grandaughter everyday that she just has to ignor the other folks.

I 'm running a lower half stock windshield leaned back. I also plan on sitting as low as comfortably possible in the car.

You used the word rubbish. Awesome. You must be from the UK. Also awesome. Just my opinion, but as a whole you guys have great taste.
Judging by the rest of the build, I'm sure you'll pick what's right aesthetically for the car.

I'll add this...IMO the size of the T cowl (width) limits the sex appeal and elegance of a Duvall or Hallock. I think the width of the A and later bodies make them the "perfect" candidates. I've seen Duvalls/Hallocks executed nicely on a T but they were saved before my computer took its big crash.

Just me, but I think the T needs the beefyness of the stock stanchions to accentuate the width. If you go with a Duvall/Hallock, I would suggest to keep the size of the center piece as "muted" as possible.

Thanks for all the pictures guys its really helped me visualize what was needed
Here is my decision I am going to run a chopped down original (well the frame I made last night) the reason being cost and looks.
I have resigned myself to the fact that I am going to be above the windshield to get the cool look so I am leaving the windshield off altogether for now, if I have to wear goggles anyway I might as well concentrate on all the things to get it going so I can attend a couple of important events this summer.

The main focus right now is getting the tub ready for paint and now I don't have to fill the cowl door!
