Well, for truly stock, the upholstery on all 1925 T open bodied cars was a semi-gloss black--however, so far, your model looks so nice!

You need to grab a copy of Collectable Automobile - Volume 17 #5 . This issue has all of the Ford T's from the latter years 1925-7. Art is correct in the interior color being a semi Gloss black too. I mention the magazine as the article will show you the wiring used on the magneto coils . Ed Shaver

Plug wires, as well as the wires from timer to firewall (individual coils for each cylinder were in wooden boxes on the inside of the firewall through 1925) were: red (#1 plug), green (#2 plug), white (#3 plug) and black, #4 plug), from timer to coil (twisted together) and from coil to plug. The timer is a simple small drum-shaped affair on the front of the camshaft housing, coil wires came out of the sides, 90-degrees apart, with a single lead wire (black) coming from the top of the flywheel housing (the magneto on a Model T was built into the flywheel), and ran down the right side of the engine to the timer (a very primitive "distributor"). Also, the intake manifolds on all T's were black, exhaust manifolds never painted, turned rusty within miles after first bought.

there's 71 pages to wade through here: http://www.modelcars...php?showforum=4

don't fall into the trap of making things too complicated too soon. there's always "the next one!"

looks good so far!
