    Heres a couple shots of my T roadster with its newly fitted hood. I'm not sure on the year or the exact make, but I think its a dodge from the late 30's. I skinnied the thing up quite a bit to fit it to this narrow body, but all in all I think its turning out pretty nicely. Now I'm trying to decide if I should run the hood sides or not. Oh and check out that cluttered shop! Yuck, somebody need to go to meetings!

    Yeah thanks Johnny your Old man's bumper car is doubling as my beer cooler... until it gets warm enough to need ice. My poor little shop is pretty much SHOE HORNED full of shit. I had to dismantle my A coupe and hang it up just so I could move! What you son't see is my cafe racer completely disassembled and skattered, about another 10 sets of drivein speakers and a whole slew of trannys and intakes! Anybody see anything they need??? Muh hahaha!

    I'll take pics of the uncut grill so it can be prop ID'ed. The only reason is I'd like to find the correct headlight buckets that mount to this shell. These are late 30's chevy truck lights.

    Heres a couple shots of the T with hoodsides. I don't know if I exactly like where they are going. May just make my own. Oh and mocked up the "speedboat" windscreen today. Can anybody I.D. this grill? I'm starting to think buick for one reason or another. This is how big this surround started out! This hood lost 15" out of the center in the back!

    You don't need a support group, you need a bigger garage. :)

    I like the hood sides, you could run your exhaust out the sides, or just extend them.

    I believe that grille is a 37 Plymouth.

    I really like the "lines" of the hood sides, BUT they really need to be extended to the frame in my opinion. Your doing a great job, the hood flows real well.
     
  16. I liked the grille shell and hood, it works well with your car. Then I saw the windshield mock up and it REALLY makes the whole package come together. Everything looks like it belongs on that car!

    Now I must retreat to my own garage to stare and wonder a bit. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Yeah, things just got a whole lot worse, as far a space goes. I took my A coupe quarters off the walls yesterday to start assembling. I had about a 5x10 bare spot and thought, "I'll take care of that".
