Hi All: I have checked with all the suppliers for wood kits--very hard to get a response--and then its not good. Seems orders are out almost a year--someplaces more. Even heard that a sheet metal supplier had filled the order board and kits were available only through him. I have the plans to cut my own--but would prefer using a kit. Any suggestions would be appreciated--better yet, if anyone has a roadster kit, 23-25 you want to part with please contact me. Thanks. Dewey

Did you contact fordwood? They make the wood kits for Model T's.
You can buy Model T wood kits from the kit maker in North Carolina. They make the wood kits for most if not all the major T parts suppliers. You can buy from them direct instead of going thru a suppier. Maybe you have already contacted them direct.
Hope this helps.
It does indicate that interest in Model T's continues!

I'm using one of the patterns available to wood my '22 touring. I will have to look when I get home from work to see whose it is. If you do this yourself I would advise you use dimension lumber (pine) to fit some of the components first, and use them as a pattern to cut your expensive hardwood. I have found the pattern quite accurate, except where the uprights meet the sills. Three of the uprights I have made more than once to get a tight joint at the sill, as I found as cut to the pattern they are quite loose, and leave a gap ( the angle on the back side is incorrect). It has been a longer slower process than I expected. The panel between the two doors on the right side has been a real booger, I have no idea how many hours I have in it, but it should be done tonight. I have not started to assemble the doors yet, I think the car will run with out doors for a while.
My wood shop is in the basement and the car is in the garage. It really helped to bring the band saw, and belt sander to the garage. Don't be afraid to do it, but it will teach you patience.

I got mine from Classic Wood in Greensboro, NC. I think from the time I ordered it to delivery was about two weeks.....
