Where do I place my order? :-)
Wonder what the story was on the pipe in the ceiling in the first picture? Dan
I would say that is an expansion loop, most likely a very long pipe run and need for building & pipe expansion/contraction.
Where were those guys when I needed a new top on my Touring car.
Totally cool! I wish some of the people making tops and upholstery now days would pay attention!
My grandfather could be one of those guys. He worked for Ford upholstering Model T's
1. It does not appear to 'hot' as is suggested today in putting in upholstery. Look at how everyone is dressed.
2. The person who is helping me do my upholstery says we need to put the body on the frame prior to doing the top. (16 touring)
Michael, Yes. Body on frame and make sure it is level front and back.
Those are terrific pictures.
Michael, In theory you could do the top on a frame with correctly spaced supports. But as Richard aludes to and as Yogi Berra said, "In Theory there is no difference between Theory and Practice. In Practice, there is."
Thomas, I have proven a thousand times that is a quote that can not be argued with!
I like that quote!
And I like the photos.
Thank you all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Remember the "Rip Van Winkle' Ford a very original example of a Model T from the factory.
Here is a picture Bruce McCalley took and commented on in his article about the car.
Being exact and true might be the way it should be but maybe that was not always the case,
Forgive me for posting this one again, but it looks like this one might have been taken on the same floor as the first photo, just a few numbers down.
