    IMG_8298.jpg IMG_8299.jpg It looks like this but I admit these aren't great photos if your trying to see the roof. I'll see if I have any from the hamb drags last year that show it.

    His steering loop may also may not be a direct fit to another car because of the un-sectioning he did making his cowl taller than stock

    Woah, Timm thanks for covering for me.

    Timm is correct though I added 2” to the cowl to make room for the steering box under the cowl and clean up the body lines of the car. I can get a measurement from top of frame rail to top of hoop, but it’s really a custom thing.

    The body clears it by 1/2” all the way around.

    I’ll also try and get some finished roof photos up soon. I keep forgetting I didn’t get them uploaded.

    Great project and it looks well balanced, I just hope you do not find the view thru the windshield too frustrating at times.
    Lucky you live in NE where it is mostly flat because on mountain roads it would drive me nuts trying to see up hills...
     
  6. That is a good looking T sedan. I love the chop. Nothing more fun than driving a slinky lowdown hotrod with a chopped top. Some will never understand. I do.

    Just a bump to the top for some good reading and hopes of some updates ;)
     
  8. Thanks for the bump, @Tim. I missed this the first time around.
