Looking back at the original tonneau cover and forward to the new one...

After a short conversation, @Rocking Rodney Rat suggested a more tapered opening and not quit as far forward as the old tonneau cover opening...

Sketched up a template for the leading edge of the new opening...

Better, but not quite right, yet...

This inspired this:

Yep! The 22 Jr clear windshield might just fit the bill...

Here's the final plan:

Maybe even recess the glass into the cover...

Awesome....rev up the Sawzall😄!!!  -RRR

The pencil line across the back edge of the new opening will be removed initially and replaced after the rest of the opening is completed... -KK

Looks almost, almost ready for primer 

Not quite, Brother... yet seriously anticipated!

Cockpit Opening Prep:

Traced the Glass Windshield from the 22 Jr

It will be recessed in the cockpit opening...

Drilling along the arc of the opening will be the first order of business... -KK

Gotta keep reminding myself to come check this category of the forum… 😬

This is going to be the most epic ‘29 Roadster model ever built. We in the audience couldn’t have imagined where this project was headed. (You probably couldn’t have either 🤣)

Au contraire my friend... the '29 TNR is and always has been headed in the same exact direction!  Gotta love it when a plan comes together... what was not expected was to see over 20k views and the overwhelming support from loyal followers here and on fb!! @Rocking Rodney Ratis somewhat pleased with the constant progress and steadfastness being applied to this build!!!  @Speedprohas watched from afar with a willingness to step in, much in the same manor he has on the '29 Trib' PU for @tim boyd, but RRR is adamant that I carry this thru to completion.  

So, on that note: Let the engine work begin!

Thanks, Bil...

Been so busy with things downstairs that getting back up here has not been a high priority.  Sitting here at my laptop on Mom's old dropleaf table with my bench behind me, my comfort zone.  Talked to @Rocking Rodney Ratabout the eight-pipe organ powered by the '41 Lincoln Potvin Blown Flathead V-12 and discussed the corrugated exhaust pipes from the Beverly Hillbillies kustom version.  But both of us after box diving and second checking, they turned out to be a bit too big around.  So, back to the side pipes from the AMT Model T kit from wayyy back.  Here's where the cuttin', drillin' & slashin' all come into play:

152443973_20221113_150622(2).jpg.361cc2d5fe5a2f1f035ab939ec59b3b3.jpg

20221125_123941.jpg.4906be4694c4c32be616a3a42bba52bb.jpg

Drilled & Pinned the first pipe to fit the block... really raw!

20221125_125150.jpg.fc7ccdfc302f38b72d021f9862998451.jpg

Pilot drill out the center of the pipe...

20221125_130923.jpg.40f5f493636cf0004e19985d3d04d9b7.jpg

Tune the wall thickness with a bit bigger drill bit...

20221125_131120.jpg.9a6ff800e9768d1c03bd8bcfa9961d51.jpg

Code line dotted to guide the slash angle of the tail of the pipe...

20221125_131525.jpg.cb036c1e1caddc2ad299f34e6a414e3f.jpg

Following the pattern to the nth degree...

20221125_132202.jpg.9910f59f114bfd445354005afba67a51.jpg

From this angle the slash pipe almost resembles the well-tuned pipe organ...

20221125_132419.jpg.f7157900a894dd1c2110f0c2da92acda.jpg

A little more fine tuning & shaping will place this pipe right through the opening in the belly pan! -KK
