Hi Chris .....................

Is your reply too involved to post here? - I only ask because I really could use that information as well. I'm at the moment working on a project to bring some vintage type bodies to fruition.

If indeed your reply may be a bit to involved to post may I ask that I too could be a recipient of the explanation?

Cheers.................. Andi.

Andi. If you send me an email, I'll be able to send out the tutorial (with photos) to you and Jodi tomorrow. I would do it today but its a honey-do day for me with the wife and I need several hours to put the tutorial together. CB

I tried sending you the first part of the tutorial just a few minutes ago but it bounced. Could you send me a direct email, not through the forum?

Chris.

Chris..............

I've sent a direct mail to the address you gave to dragonrods - sorry to appear such a numpty, hopefully this will establish contact.

Ettore............

I know you of old --- DON'T get too excited!!!! This is a series of projects that have been slowly revolving around in my head for quite some years now and as such are definately not on the fast track to anywhere. The whole thing is based on the Model T, and at the minute I'm scratching ancillery parts for the TT commercial version. The axle, chassis and associated hardware. This I then want to extend with differing body and bed styles. I have realised this is all applicable to the standard model T in all it's guises too - most of which [as you know] are not available off the shelf.

One thing I have come to realise during my research is that the Model T is in no way definative and almost evolved on a weekly basis, and even major changes are difficult to determine.......... this has not helped.

Anyway I really wanted to keep a rather low profile with this project in case it came to nought! It just so happens I need as much help as possible getting through the process of understanding the moulding and casting side of things. If I do get the hang of it? - Who knows what may happen! [ smiling now].

Thanks both for your interest...................... Andi.

Hi resinslinger,

I've been a member for a while. Don't post much but read when I get a chance. Question, can You e-mail me also the tutorial? I have cast a couple of parts, wheels, blowers, speakers, amps, etc. But a casting a whole body still is on my list.

Thanks,
