    Wow, this is looking great-love the dash too! I am a sucker for T coupes. That is one car on my bucket list.

    Keep up the good work

    Josh, your project is looking good. I don't know if you have seen pix of, my friends chopped T coupe, his screen name is Bewas, here on the H.A.M.B. It' a sweet ride if you haven't seen it yet. I'm still slowly hacking on mt 27 Ford modified,but I have no deadlines.

    Got this original Ansen pedal assembly from a fellow Hamber (thanks 61cad!), with chromed arms. The chrome is a bit rough, but I'll keep 'em as is....since they've got CHARACTER.....who knows what cool old hottrodder had these on.
    I did however have to modify the bracket to fit flush, since it interfered with the curvature of the cowl....

    The rusty MC is just a mockup....a shiney CHROME one will find it's home there...:D

    Also,,,,during pedal mock-up, I was trying out different shifter handles....I have a half dozen different Hurst and Eelco handles, but none were quite "right". So I pulled the handle off my other car:eek:....damn it's perfect.
    The simulated wood grain grip will go bye-bye in favor of some homemade acrylic ones....in white and blue:)

    Pistol Grips rule.....but I'll need another now for my other car....haha!

    Uhhhh.....uhhmmmm....errr.....no Neil, held up on $$$ for sheet. Trying to get a 1920's Pexto shear from a freind first.....to make the cuts a little nicer.

    Thanks fellas...

    .
    Yeah JJ, I dig 'em alot too. Everytime I acquire a "new" OLD part, my mind wanders, thinking of who bought it originally, what it was installed on, etc, etc....it's the old parts and the history of each part that really make the car.
    And I need all the help I can get to make up for my HACK.....:D


    Actually it's not....he probably has his settings set to only allow "freinds" to view albums....:)
     
  14. Look good man! See you at the early bird??

    Very neat looking Hot Rod. 4 speed like it should be, too. Chopped T coupes are bad ass.
