    Thanks GM. I was not aware of that and would like to find the article. I know Ken has the car now and restored it several years ago. Like most, it's likely far better that it ever was!

    Couldn't locate that magazine but here is a picture of Ken Austin's recreation T. Somehow it looks too refined and I prefer the first one. This is from the 46th Portland Roadster Show coverage from Street Rodder magazine. Scan-190218-0001.jpg

    Last update on this for a while. I have another project coming soon so this one is going into hibernation. Still need to box the frame and add a bunch of pieces to tie the front crossmember in, but went ahead and cut it off the table to make it a roller.

  5. Had the 21TT chassis blasted and epoxy primed last month. I painted it with a brush using Tekaloid. Now building it up and the 27 tub is off to be blasted and epoxy primed next week. IMG_20190217_190534938.jpeg IMG_20190120_140826473.jpeg

  11. That looks GREAT!! Have you left enough room between the door and steering wheel for your fingers? I know mine is fairly tight. JW

    If you raise the rear of the body, so that the fender lines are above the tires with a rake it will really look mean!

    Anyone wants to start one, my '26 T coupe (2 bodies) is posted in the classified section. Will never be able to finish it with my current medical conditions.

    Heres a 26 I've been slowly tinkering with. Im going for the early gow job look. Ive got some early Houk wire wheels that I'm restoring for it. I reversed the spring eyes but eventually I want to lower it more. Also thinking about putting the side aprons back on. The windshield will also get chopped. Im trying to keep it a running driving car as long as possible while doing everything on a shoestring budget. 20190331_112222.jpeg

    They are new ones from Macs. These are the US made ones. Three were good, one need just a wipe to true up. I don't think the offshore ones are as consistent. I probably could have gotten away with fourth but I like my brakes to be pretty smooth. All the internals came from Macs as well except the stainless lined wheel cylinders from Speedway and the E brake setup from Lokar, (my only concession to the street roddy stuff). I considered using the new ones with the Buick style fins but thought these are more in line with the "look" I'm after. These pics were taken a bit ago. It's actually quite a bit more along at this point. If I get time this Sunday I'm going to fab the side panels for the hood. I need to get them at least roughed in so I can roll the belly pan in .032 aluminum.
