    it doesn't take any more effort to do an acceptable job than it does to screw it up,
    you just need to decide which way you want to go.

    This thread rules... I've said it before and I'll say it again... Awesome work Paul. You're making it very difficult for me to focus on finishing my A roadster up with all this T roadster building business!:cool:

    started the repair work on the other side,
    it needed the same patch along the bottom of the wheelwell,
    and a bit more of the rear curved section.

    I still need to replace some of the bottom rear of the bead and bottom brace.
    will also need to replace about the top foot of the gutter...

    but this side can be saved.

    here it is clamped for checking,

    Fan-freaking-tastic!! I have read this before, and just re-read it again. Great work! Can't wait to see more of this. It has helped with some insight on my build.

    not an update but I did take about one minute to bolt a passenger side Belond header I had laying around
    upside down on the driver side..

    I'm liking it,
    I think it fits the style of this car

    nice work paul! i'm inspired by your turtle deck work....i'll be savin' a couple of them pics for my attempt.....do you ever consider having a turtle deck and a box to swap back and forth?
     
  23. Any updates? You got me hooked on this build as I have been thinking of a "T" roadster for my next project.

    this is gonna be a really neat car. i LOVE those inner trim rings on the wheels. super cool.
     
  29. Paul I never thought of using pluming plugs for bisquits. I need busquits for the hurst mount in a project I have here. I got an old slick i was going to cut up and laminate but the pluming plugs are going to be harder rubber.

    Work is top notch as always and thanks for the idea on the bisquits.

    I've heard of using hockey pucks for that as well. They're near indestructible!

    Paul your roadster has really got "it"! Thanks for keeping us posted-
