    Just wanted to say what's already been said -- multiple times. That's a great build and you should be very proud. Enjoy it as much as we've all enjoyed looking at it.
     
  3. Nice! Period perfect!
     
  4. PERFECTION.
    That is just amazing, I'm thinking about building something just like this! Great timing.

    Thanks for all your positive input. Here's a few shots of what she rolls on. Hope this answers a few questions. If you need help with other details, feel free to ask. I have many pix to share.

    Thanks for posting the pictures! That is just a beautiful and clean little T done to perfection! Only thing I wish is that this had an entire "build thread" as you built it but really great work.

    Just returned home from a drive up one of our local canyons, note the pleased look on my face on arrival. Nothing better than driving our Hot Rods.

    Yes I'm running a fan. This was without a doubt the most challenging aspect of this build. Firewall to radiator face 28.5 inches. I was hell bent on maintaining that dimension. You know....the look. You can beat this easy with a 8BA, lots of room with the dizzy out of fan play. The beauty of a 59A? You just have to love the motor. All this fan orientation kicked my ass, not to mention the channel etc. This is a model A framed Hot Rod, the 32 framed jobs may be easier? Nevertheless this is my ride, built by me, and I'm proudly driving it.

    Did you use the early V8 garage brake adapter for the K member and also the emergency brake adapter?
