Ready for finish sanding and paint
Top will be a padded vinyl. White oak with
MDO for the panels. Two pull out drawers
In the back on wood slides.
Where did you get the dimensions?
Beautiful work Neil.
Jon, I used these picture as a reference and did some cardboard mock ups until I liked the look.
Ended up being 34W 38L 21H
Now here is a Peddlers Box !
Hey Mark, or Dr. Bumstead, what was that Lenape Liquid? Is it still available?
Can't wait to see it cruising around the Berkshires!
12 years ago I pulled her of the road due to very worn crank bearings. Three kids through college later this forum help me find a new engine for it. Registered it yesterday. First ride today.
Did you end up getting that engine from north hampton area?
Perhaps I will see you out today, my bus route is Stockbridge today. Good luck and have fun!
I REALLY like your idea. Considering that I have a 26 coupe that has had the trunk lid area cut out of it, this is a really viable way to get some benefits
Please excuse my ignorance, but what is the "MDO" that you used for the panels?
Rick, that is a misspelling, it's supposed to be MDF board (medium density fiberboard).
This one is on tbay
MDO: paper faced plywood, used for making billboards, a very paintable surface and fairly weather-tight. Also, usually the plywood is multiple laminations: ie 5 ply instead of 3 ply.
It comes single-faced or double faced (both sides).
Now that my posting FINALLY posted, I see you were thinking of the Fiberboard-- you'll get MUCH better service out of the MDO stuff. It's a LOT stronger, and takes paint very well. There's a lumberyard in Chico (near me) that sometimes gets a small stack of it with edge or corner damage, and it's very reasonable if you don't need the full sheet. Maybe there's a yard like that near you.
Well, I'll be damned. Learn something new every day. Thanks David for clarifying.
MDF not for exterior use. Sign painters use
MDO all the time for exterior use. Holds up
well. Car ran great today for first trip out.
Hand starts on Mag and was able to adjust
For a free neutral easily. Brass needs a lot
of elbow grease. But that can wait.
All primed up and sanded smooth. Now I'm at a cross road. It's a home made peddlers box and the white oak wood grain looks good through the primer. I'm rethinking the finish and thinking of brushing it so it will have that not perfect look. If I fill and resand it will look better then my car
Brushed the underside today. Definitely will be spraying the rest. Order some solid brass Hoosier cam latches for the doors. If the weather cooperates so I can spray out doors, I should be able to install next weekend.
Almost done. Need to mount tail light and
come up with some nice signs for the sides
Looks great Neil, well done. Signs will really make it pop, what do you plan on peddling?
BTW, Neil -- That box looks WAY better on your '15 than the '23-25 turtle you had on it.
Very nice model T! Peddle coffee and donuts. You will be the hit of every club tour!
Or? Attach sign boards to the sides and back. That way you can change from day to day, or even more often. That was what I had wanted to do with a '14 covered pickup I had years ago. But family needs forced a sale before it was roadworthy.
I vote for your machine to be a Ford service truck.
Looks like you need to have Lenape Liquid on the side and sell snake oil in a "low pitch" show. You don't happen to play banjo do you?
Great looking T. Very nice work. Henry is proud!
Neil, will this interfere with your top or do you just not use a top?
Excellent work! That looks wonderful.
Don't have a top yet. That will be the next project
If I make it to Hershey this year maybe I'll find one
You might have some luck more local. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/3487/769500.html?1500825692
You may have to space the top saddles up to keep the top from resting on the peddler's box when folded. No big deal.
