Attached is a photo of my "horseless carriage" project as of today (six weeks so far). Did a bit of painting and pinstriping on the body and started making the folding fabric top. As I fashion the model, it is hard to imagine that highwheel motor cars were contemporaries of the early Model Ts.
Have a great week.
BTW, the model is 18 inches long.
Some of those old farmers were really conservative! And, they could handle pretty deep ruts.
A masterpiece! Thanks for the photos.
That looks awesome!!!!!! Great job, can't wait to see it with the top up.
Excellent! You must be putting a lot of hours in to get that far in 6 weeks.
Nice to see it.
Thanks guys. I would guess that I have about 60 hours into it over the last six weeks.
The top is proving to be the most challenging aspect of the build. Like a real top on a Model T, the geometry has to be correct to make it look right and fold correctly. So far, I have had two aborted tries at it and hoping that the third time'so the charm.
