  1. Great work!
    Can't wait to see this one all buttoned up.
    It's got an understated awesomeness about it.

    So I guess I will finally give you all an update on the T. Im sick today so i have nothing better to do than this. So lets get started. where I left off I was welding up the frame and finishing it off. Now I have painted all the necessary parts and pulled the motor out of my truck for the T.

    Basically im just putting the thing together now and its exciting but it doesn't seem like it in pictures. hope you all enjoy.

    found these cool shock bolts that worked perfect for the motor mount.

    Had to make these. Its a little tight fit in the T some times and you have to think out side the box. my Dad on the other had thought inside the box... Box tubing that is ( ok only crappy joke on this thread, just had to say it)

    late night donuts for sure hopfully this thing is a little more controllable than the truck but I have a feeling it wont be.

    I guess my pops got the roadster bug and got this from Lazyv8 aka Eastbay Speed and Custom. pretty excited to have 2 roadsters in the family tree.
