    Good thread here. I love em all!

    And I have to agree with the earlier post.

    T's are underrated

    And I did get the clever T and A comment. hahaha
     
  2. " T and A ", T.I.G. and ARC { welding } right??????????????????:rolleyes:
     
  3. Thanks Todd, I had a feeling as I was typing that its not actually a Ford, or maybe I should start wearing my hood again when I T.I.G. weld:confused:

    Not at all, it looks great. I don't think a T can look bad in black. You just caught me off guard.

    I took mine out for the first time last nite. Drove about 4 miles. Open headers.

    Roads are rough in my hood. It didnt have any rattles at all. Was suprisingly very very tight. HIt a dip in the road and thought it was gonna bottom out but it didnt.

    More road tests today after work!

    Here's the '26 touring I have waiting in the wings. It'll be a fenderless jalopy on a Model A frame when I finally get around to building it.

    I just seen more T Tin in one thread than exists in England. No such thing as an ugly T, to me they are like your own kids, all beautiful. Thanks for the pics

    MIne is officially on the road. I am going to drive it to work here in about 30 mins.

    Its kinda chilly out, and no side or rear glass, should be fun. Here is the exhaust I had made for it.

    Thanks! The posts were cut down already when I bought the body, but they just had a great look to them! I believe they were cut down about 12 or 13 inches....I would have to measure them again to refresh my memory.

    The top is all custom built. It was based on the original '26 T roadster tops and a '22 Locomobile "48" roadster. It's just waterproof canvas and aluminum tubing bows w/plastic fittings (boat top stuff). It's light, cheap, and looks good on the car.

    Here's mine, it just needs the fluids topped up and it's good to go! ;)

    It's actually a running driving truck, but I haven't had it long and it will be restored eventually.
