Oh wow, John, that's looking great. I'm thinking of building up one of these. I have one a friend sent me and I think I might join in on building one. I am going to go box stock though.

This is another fun build and thread and I will be watching.

Nice to see one of these Big T's being built at such a high level.

Fantastic and very instructional work as always, John, but a huge pat on the back for taking on this project in the first place. Who else could accomplish such excellent work at this pace.

Excellent work as always, John! All of those details really look great, and when this is Hot Rod with the hood removed, they will be more visible than in "normal" car. Very nice job!
