    Tasteful flavor and charm is easily accomplished when Seret is building it...

    That's Bitchen! Easy clean up too, scotch brite and wd40.
     
  8. Looks perfect in there.
    Reminds me of a antique
    square-ish cake pan at the floor board area.

    The shifter panel is nice, but even better is that the driver looks like he fits in the car. When I sit in it, my T roadster looks like Bruce Banner's shirt.
     
  11. Yep...nice work, but not over-fabricated.

    Here's a pic of Jay and his family cruising the new-to-them roadster on a little reliability run a few weeks back...

    Matt Seret does some excellent work......
    however, I don't the sharp lines/edges. All of the early Ford covers from the 30's had nice curves/ bumps to them (like the foot-board portion of this piece)

    Cool indeed ! It looks great as it is: plain, buffed-out metal. If it had been painted black, it would have looked "factory"...and only an "insider" would know the difference.

    The wooden floor boards accentuate it.
    Without the varnished wooden floor boards, the cover would be ‘lost’.
    Beautiful work throughout !

  18. I love things like this. Most people walk by and don't realize how much fabrication takes place to make a part that looks so simple!

    Love everything about this car. Does anyone know if those are stock height stanchions or chopped. It’s hard to tell. From the profile shot, they look just about stock height.
