    Hey all, I was previously building a 28/29 A modified however plans changed - I wanted a roof as I probably wont build another rod straight after this one and want an all seasons car.

    Here's where I'm at with it (brief summary/recap)
    Driveline: '56 322 nailhead running a 3x2 2g setup, schiefer flywheel hooks up to offy bell and ford 4 speed top loader - back end is a '56 customline.
    Front suspension: socal drop axle, reverse eye spring behind axle, split bones ('37), armstrong lever shocks
    Rear suspension: ladder bars with bushed ends, standard A spring (but behind axle), telescopic shocks.
    Wheels are 15's - 15x5 and 15x7, final tyres will be stones (either 640-15 or 670-15 fronts and 820-15 rears).
    The chassis has a 4" sweep up front and a 10" at the rear, the exhaust will run through it and I will be running cowl steering and swing/hanging pedals.

    The body is due to rock up at the end of the month, I'm running a short wheel base because of the original modified plan and also I like the look so I will be shortening the T body a little to suit.
    I'm running a '29 A radiator surround and guide headlights. Inside will be a custom bench seat and a '49 ford dash.

    I'll be chasing a heap of 322 parts soon as I'm planning a rebuild if anyone can help out (keeping in mind I'm in the deep deep south)

    I like it. Sounds like it's going to be different. Keep chugging along.

    That'll be cool to see. I was subbed to your Modified thread so I'm definitely subbing to this one. Planning on chopping that top?

    Love the chassis/stance. Big inspiration for my T roadster build.

    Mr Mattitude - top will get chopped for sure, not sure exactly how much just yet. Plan is to shorten it to fit the wheelbase and then work the top out from there.

    thanks for the kind words everyone
