    Getting some things done this weekend.
    I got some guides from CUTITUP53chevy on here and I think they're going to look rad.

    Lots more seat and floor work to come...

    Looking good, Norton. Following yours, and a couple of other threads is getting me anxious to get back to working on mine. Hopefully I can get back on it before the end of the year.
     
  4. Nice job Norton, I need to make something like that for the 26. Looking forward to you doing the shifter. JW :)

    I'm waiting on my cheapie pepboys universal shifter and brake set up to finish my driver side floor skeleton.
    The passenger side is looking pretty good now.

    Nooo way!

    [/QUOTE] Lookin Good man! Hope to see it out next summer![/QUOTE]

    I'm hoping to be driving it in the spring.

    I've got 90% of the parts I need to finish it. It just needs the hours into finishing up all the jobs on the to do list.

  13. Nice looking headers. Are you putting anything inside or running them open?

    Thanks!

    I'll be thrashing on it all weekend.

    There's a local show happening in a couple of weeks that I want to have it at as an unfinished project.

    They're from Gear Drive Headers.
    We're going to gut a pair of swap meet glass packs to use as bolt in baffles.

    ...all the intricate decisions that you've made so far are coming together in a really cool and coherent pkg. Heavy thinking pays off with a 'tight' looking piece....congrats..

    Hahaha, you've given far too much credit out with that comment!

    Really, this is what happens when you throw the cheapest parts you can find (and a bunch of very good friends pitching parts in too) at a build with some help from a great in house welder (my father).

    I'm super lucky to have all those things come together on this build.

    We're still under $4000 in to it.

    But the steering is coming together.

  23. I like the idea of building some adjustability into the steering column.
    My idea was to hang an adjuster off the dash that doubles as your column drop. You could have nubs on the steering column so you can adjust your height.
    My thought was to use something like this: [​IMG]

  24. ^^^^that looks like a window security latch. Just sayin cause you might be able to use it instead of makin something special.
     
  25. Hey Norton, in mounting you steering column make sure you will be able to get to your brake peddle without getting your knee caught under the wheel,this is an issue I have just dealt with on my 26.Cars looking good. JW

    That's pretty much where the original thought of an adjuster came from.
    Model A windshield sliders.

    Where'd you find that image Speedy Canuck?

    26 T Ford RPU, My brake pedal will me on the right side of the column.
    So, no moving my legs under the column at all and I can heal-toe the brake and gas for burnouts!

    I've often wondered who came up with the first vertical steering on a T hot rod/race car and why. Still don't know who but now I know why.

    Speedy canuck, I'd probably just grind some notches into the A ones, since the whole kit costs as much as just the later sliders, hahaha.

    Steel Rebel, I don't see your point?

    Foot room! If the steering box and shaft is behind your feet you have what little room there is in the front of the T body for your feet. Now if you had the shaft high and coming out of the side of the cowl you would have the foot room.
