    Been ages since I updated this. Been working on small stuff. Steering, pedals, and lots of non-car-related nonsense. Ill try to get some pics up soon. Maybe it will inspire me to get some shit done!

    Nice to revisit some of these nearly forgotten trad T builds. Hasn't been many new ones in a while.

    Fellas.. thanks so much for dragging this back to the top! We will be back on this car tonite! Time to hunker down and get these cars done! I need to revive my thread as well. H.I. has some updates to post for sure. We are doing a lathe chuck upgrade on his lathe tonite.. kinda boring for the hamb, but it's needed.. Not sure what he has planned for the car this eve.. Maybe he will chime in soon. We both have gotten distracted with random life stuff, just like everyone from time to time. All good though.

    Whoo. Yeah, been away a while. Kids, bikes, sculpture crap, house crap, work crap. Whatever. Im easily distracted, and haven't worked on the car as much as I would like. It looks the same, I've been working on it off and on, doing floors and pedals and whatnot. Ill get some pics in here shortly. Sorry to the guys that were following this! Ill try and keep it going but no promises, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, haha

    Hard to believe but this car is still not on the road. Its tough to find the time to put in with everything life throws at you so progress has been slow. Figured its time to catch this thread up to where the car is now. The metal work on the dash was a mess and I had to redo it to make the gauges I got work anyway. Here it is in progress.

    Built a little square tube frame and skinned it for the front floor piece. Making these pieces removable.

    Time for a trunk floor! Tried to keep it simple. Bent the spring cover up with Pineapple's new shrinker-stretcher.

    Time goes by. Cleaned up the garage and put everything back together for a good mockup.
