The reason the T was done that way is that Ts had a fabfic-coverd, built-up roof with a lot of wood. The '32 Ford 3-window had a soft roof insert like this...

...and when opened up looks like this (a '34)

Hot-rodders have been filling the soft-insert with steel for a smoother look for a very long time. Removing so much OEM steel would quite thoroughly destroy the structural integrity of the body shell, though you could restore some of it with wood. Probably not a mod that would ever occur in 1:1, as good 3-window shells are worth their weight in gold. Still, a car with a badly damaged roof could be turned into something cool by what you're doing, and a lot of hot-rods came to be that way. Interesting. The Model A had a lot of wood in the roof and might give you some ideas. This is the wood for a '28-'29.

thnx , well alls till rough work and tbh i only had a tiny bit of styrene and only these angled ones ..
but after the chassis is done i will add more and clean up everything..

and yes low it will be , i'm doing it like this with the modified chassis and the cab on the rails because i never did that
only channeled with a modified chassis
i was curious on the outcome

it will be really low but in a way wont look that extreme because the roof isnt chopped and the cab is on the chassis..

sometimes i just want to try new stuff , otherwise it becomes boring :) and i canb dream up these revell kist now , the manual hasnt been opened ounce lol


here is a dryfit with the drivetrain , the transmission and drive axle really dont come up in the cab , just a hair

735148_247436525389265_1183380614_n.jpg

on the chassis

421772_247436552055929_748487742_n.jpg

this is what was left , just a tad inside , i made a tunnel from a old airplain bomb / rocket

379661_247436585389259_407823034_n.jpg

i tried some bucket seats but i liked the bench more so i'm keeping that in

184732_247436628722588_1152438497_n.jpg

this is just a rough idea , just to check how wood looked
so this isnt the width or how i want to use it

i will make a real frame following the outerlines of the gap and make some pillars in between

tunnel of the old airplane rocket

385299_247436655389252_1149105468_n.jpg

now i need to close the front gaps up with some styrene

394891_247436678722583_380690859_n.jpg

and tested the inner flare behind the wheel to cover the gap up (included in the kit)

do you happen to have to original wheels and tires? I'm interested in them if you do and are willing to let them go... Nice build by the way!

thnx all !!

well yes but to start with i live in holland / the netherlands :) also i could use them in the future myself..
the rear peices already got used in a nother build ..
i often pick parts from stash kits because i never intend to build a kit how it "should" be build :)


and @ ryanm , yes that sort of the idea i had ..

since the cab has got round edges i need to make a frame that really follows the lines and i also would like to try to get a slight buldge shape in them so its not flat on top..

but not sure yet it could easely become some steel reinforcement ... we will see

today i want to try and give the edge some more shape with a small strip maybe so it does not look so cut of

thnx both :) !!!!

well today i started on the engine i will use :)

a flathead v8 ......i'm going to supercharge it

the flathead >

i drilled out the sparkplug openings , weird enough they where not in line , i wanted to drill the circles , otherwise i would have to drill into the edges ,, just a kit flaw .. i think after everything is in its not that obvious

23360_247942205338697_1673283136_n.jpg

the front of the engine is flattened so i can make new pulley's

554441_247942198672031_1739619634_n.jpg

dryfit , i like the fact the body is still high and the rear axle shows

44755_247942295338688_534125326_n.jpg

fitted the inner wells

424419_247942285338689_27449246_n.jpg

this is the ride hight , i wanted to do something i didnt do before , i love chopped and channeled but this time i did more to the chassis and kept the body on the chassis tbh its lightly over the chassis but not much)

394911_247942325338685_1683720573_n.jpg

rear wheels will sit wider i have to make something to get them further out

558178_247942385338679_431057001_n.jpg

just fits , the steering rod clears the radiator , the flathead hoses fit nciely against the radiator , i will make a nice thicker piece where they fit in

385180_247942408672010_489897452_n.jpg

now i'm starting the supercharger :)
