Here is this winters work progress, getting close to going into the chassis!
That is great looking! Nice work. Gonna be quite a car I'm sure. Which body style are you working on?
Thanks Dave, it's a Roadster body, made by Beaudette body co. It was built May 4,1920. Cast running board brackets, round gas tank, the 2 year only headlights with 2 bulbs, Kelsey 88 demountable wheels. Have most all of the correct parts for it, not a purist restoration, but I did the work and made it for me. Been lot of fun so far! All done here at home.
If it runs as well as it looks, that's going to be one swell ride.
Thanks Steve,looking at your posts and all the work you do motivates me to get this done!
Looks great....Keep the pictures coming.
Lovely work Thomas. It's along time since I have had one look that good.
Just one thing. I have seen suggestions that the cover on the hogs head needs to go on the other way up. Seems the depression goes down so the oil runs off onto the bands. With the way it splashes away in there it probably doesn't matter though.

Nice! What more can I say?
Drive carefully, and enjoy! W2
Thomas, looks nice, but I'd like to recommend adding a few more head bolts.

That is a real thing of beauty, you should be proud of your work.
Really nice work! Its to bad when they look that nice they get dirty when you start driving them. Been there and done that. My car is not a show car and I didn't build it to be one but it looked nice to begin with.
I am lucky enough to live where most of the roads are blacktop but some of the driveways are gravel. It doesent take much to get my T 'dirty' but I clean it up. Most of the time!
But, say, do you plan on touching up the cad-plated hardware with a brush when everything is assembled or are you going for some extra bling?
Bernard - Back during the Model "T" era, "bling" was just some kind of new noise you heard while driving the old Model "T". Matter of fact,.....still is! Ha,ha,......harold
"Bling" sounds like the sound my headlamp rim made when it shook off while driving down the road!
