Wish i could find some sub rails as good as the one you have.
All the rear bling now fitted and ready, just need to give my trusty Center Door a good old clean and off we go.
It's been a long time since I updated my progress on 26 COOP. I decided not to chop it (after receiving more NOs than Yes's on this thread) and am moving along well. I hope to have it running down the road so I can take it to my 55th high school reunion in September. Almost all components are done and about ready to remove the body to finish and paint it and work on the frame finishing.
I mocked up a seat and found room for the third pedal next to the TKO500:
I'll be posting progress pics more often. I promise......
That's cool. JW
If you need some good cross channels, both of the t's in my shop now have had them removed for dropped floor pans. The subrails in both of the roadsters were damn near perfect before I cut them all up
Thanks for the offer but i'm doing the same" dropped floor pans" Thinking of just making them out of 16 ga.
Of perhaps some interest to other builders, I have been working on the headlights on 26 COOP. I really want to make them work for it, 'cause I think they look cool. It turns out they are '34 or '35 Chevrolet Master Deluxe lights. Know how I found out?....I dropped one and broke the lens! Then I found a Chevy marking and started to look for a matching lens. Found one on eBay and another pair on another site. Bought all three.
Then it came to the reflectors. They are silver plated brass and, except for some of the silver plating missing, were in good polished condition. After some research, I found caswellplating.com and bought a silver plating kit.
IT WORKED! It took about an hour. Washed the reflectors with Barkeepers Friend. Then did the plating, followed by polishing with Never Dull and finally waxing:
Neat kit and cost around $50. Keep it in the back of your mind if you ever need one.
That's handy to know. KW
Good on you JW! I just clicked over 13K kms on mine. I even had to buy some new front tyres! Too much driving it like I stole it!
Good to see you are getting some good fun for your efforts Wade, if you head down this way again let me know.
Finished all the new brake lines and fitted all the brackets etc on the RPU's chassis and when I have repainted the axles they will be mounted soon. JW
My body has been blasted and the frame is ready for paint.... parts are chromed and other parts are powder coated ...getting closer.
Very nice Larry. JW
The intake and carbs is a thing of BEAUTY
Here is a little teaser of what I am working on. Build thread coming soon...
Looks good Ryno. Stop by if you're in town. Here is the one I'm working on.
Here it is after a few changes
Finally managed to spend enough time on the Coupe to get her rolling. Went for a quick spin round the village under stock A banger power - the B engine is still away for machining.
Well i think its time to bump up this thread again.
After all its 90 years since the last model T:s where made.
I dont have any new pics of my build but here some from my thread.
Finally got to rolling chassis stage.
Thinking it's about time for an update, Bud! September is approching!
Looking good Fred. Are you going to put a grill shell on this one?
I'm playing with the idea.
Still making slow but steady progress on my RPU rebuild. Just need to go over the front hubs, some line clips and fit the rear drums then a little work under the body and so on. JW
And the other way. JW
Wow is this going to be a show car !
Not even close. Just a nice, clean cruiser.
The body is primed ,filled, sanded and shot with high build.
Then sanded again and blocked out to 400. Ready for paint
A little update. Really, the build thread is coming one of these days.
