    A beautiful piece of work. I am reminded of the 26-27 T roadster that Pete or Jake built for his/his Dad some 20, even 30, years ago.

    That was a beautiful car, absolutely beautiful, one of the best proportioned T's ever built IMHO, even if it did have a 4-bar and a V-6.

    Did he use any plans or did he possibly draw up a set with a component list that he could share with us ?

    I'd love something like that to lift up my 26 RPU.
     
  4. Bitchen car!

    Is that seat out of a Camaro?

    I got one I pulled... and always thought it would work well in a roadster.

  5. Awesome car !
    When I looked at the first pics of it, I thought, really,You are going to change things?
    Congratulations, you have managed to fine tune a Rolex !
     
  6. That is some nice work. You are going in the right direction with the changes...
     
  7. Ummm, the belly pan is looking quite tasty. I agree, pans do finish the car underneath. Mine ends just in front of the rear end. There wasn't any good way to go to the end of the car as the bottom of the tank is below that plane slightly.

  8. Pinto if memory serves me. SRM covered tha car many years ago. Dug was one of our first HAMB stars!:)

    No plans, just came up with it on his own. When all the way down, it's total height is less than 6" so a fairly low car can be driven on.

    The seat is out of a Mustang. Doug is a star! :)

    If you were to make drawings of it with specs on the materials and other parts and post it on the home made tools thread or even on a thread of it's own with lots of dimensions and pictures you would be our hero.

    That would be appreciated by more than just me I think.

    I had a motorcycle lift and it was really handy, that one would be great for my T roadster.

    Another update...

    Coming farther apart. It had all alumnum panels screwed/bolted in for the floor, firewall, truck, dash, etc. and we will be welding in new steel for all of this.
