    Man, guess I need to get out of the cave more often, first I saw this thread. Looking damn good! That's looking pretty damn close to my dream hot rod. Good luck jamming it out Timmy.

    Very nice work. I just bought a '27 roadster body in every similar condition to yours last week, so I am very interested in seeing your progress. Nice work on the repairs and some great ideas for modding the deuce frame, floors and all.

    Bump! Got any more old pics that we haven't seen? Did you do anything to the frame when you set it up for the T body? I'm also building a T on 32 rails and your stance is killer! Mines gonna be a roadster pickup with a v8-60 tube axle though, but if I could get close to the look you have that would rule. Oh yeah, what did you have to do to get the body to lay flat on the frame?

    ok it seems like I have been needing to update this thing, so here we go. so I have been working pretty hard on this thing lately and all my instigram friends know whats going on but I have neglected the Hamb. so here we go. here is a picture of the patch I had to do on the cowl.

    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/0E58FE08-D48F-42FD-BB60-038CA381572A-57396-0000065282B16A27_zpsd1d7745f.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    here you can see whats goin down
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/62B87D99-5A27-4BA7-90F0-A4CD8881D552-57396-000006527C17B5C6_zps54f35084.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    this is my kinda funky way of thinking for a column drop
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/E1120334-83C1-4092-B2A8-8841480A79B1-57396-0000065299B0BB58_zps0b80cb8f.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/D69EEA7B-C8B0-43D7-BC7F-5D3A3B1DC3BB-57396-000006529F353FAD_zps15671814.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/67A77BC5-4674-4047-8803-061C91251B0C-57396-00000652A50D56BA_zps203a2ad2.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/7BBBAA68-4152-4121-B271-EF20472A0DED-57396-00000652AA12D447_zps02604888.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    and then after all this I had a break and drove my chevy down for the LA roadster show and had one hell of a weekend.
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/C31D2D1C-AEDA-4282-8B3C-38F9F616E49B-57396-00000652D51ED8C2_zps2cf996c6.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    and then I got back to work on it after a nice break for a while. I started back up by finishing the patches on the lower half so I could finally get the body off and start finishing this thing up.
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/FA58CD90-E49B-419C-9B56-1EA53451B450-57396-000006530E6B8904_zps3fca6e51.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    I decided to leave the seam so it was like stock
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/4BCF9FF5-0E6E-4EDF-A119-DF535C6ECA94-57396-000006532F1CFA00_zps1d2b51df.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    and then the old man had to goof around and take a seat in it. mind you my dad is pretty damn big and hes around 6 ft and as you can see its a perfect fit for us tall guys.
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/56C66C61-0BFC-4403-81A6-FFC939684EC0-57396-000006533AE653DD_zpse4c796d0.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>\


    and then my buddy and I got a wild hair and pulled it all appart one night in under 2 hours.
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/CE128559-2A85-43B2-AA1D-2ED011333468-57396-0000065347059DFE_zps179a5f76.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    the gentleman pose
    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/04B484DE-612D-414A-80A2-7628BF4C0D77-57396-0000065368E851C2_zpsb25af075.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    and then we just started being idiots. trying to balance on the rear end. its the traditional SegWay from 1936

    <a href="http://s84.photobucket.com/user/timelwess/media/4349927A-4E5F-41D7-BF87-6727B5F96A3D-57396-000006537940EC6C_zps6bf4f79d.jpg.html" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    and then I started to cap off and finish up all the boxing and welding up all the cross members and adding gussets and all that jazz.

    Subscribed! I like how you dropped the seating area; at nearly 6'3 I will be doing the same. Excited to follow the build, good luck!

    Great thread and even greater lil hot rod! Love all the little details, (where cowl meets the frame beauty line, wheel base, three on the tree and that awesome column drop). Cant wait to see it done...any direction on paint yet? Oh ya, love what ya did with the seat pan as well....just a bunch of great stuff here.

    Suuuubbbbbbbbscribed!

    Would love to see some detail shots of the stering linkages and what you did there. The column shift is tough in these little cars...
