Finally have my TT out of the woods and into a storage unit till I can have a garage built to start working on it. Didn't have too rough of a time getting it out. Can't wait to get started on bringing it back to life.

Sweet!
I like that cab!
That second pic of yours reminds me of my steel cab TT. Poor derelict old buggers. :-)

Chris, really like the TT. I am going this weekend to get two TT's. Got to love those wood cabs.

Those tires look shot. The side curtains tattered. Is it really worth the bother ? :-)

That cab is really cool. Pay attention and take pics of everything before you pull anything apart. Those curtains look like trash, but don't just remove them and toss them. Study them and get a feel for how they were made. Hopefully there is enough left to get a feel for that. I suspect they rolled down, but see if you can see remnants of any ties that may have held the rolled curtain in the rolled up position. Also, see if there any fasteners that held them closed. Mine had once had a rear curtain, but the only thing left was a bit of canvas under a piece of wooden molding along the top where the curtain had been nailed to the cab.

Some of the same applies to the bed. Just don't toss anything until you have a feel for how it was done and have some pics.

Again,really cool truck.

BTW Chris, have you ever been to the T's to Olar Festival? It's just down the road from you every October. We try to go every year. Look at the pic in my profile. My truck is one of the few TT's that are usually there. Maybe we have met?

Hal - I have never attended before. I do plan to go this year, so I probably will see you there

Yes, as far as I know, we will be there.

Found what I believe to be a makers tag today. Will have to try and clean it up a bit more...

It's a patent tag, the vendors sell reproductions.

Interesting mine is slightly different than the reproduction.
