Roger, you have nailed the proportions, with just enough styling touches to say 'this is a hot rod'. This is really a cool little T.

I'm really struggling with the stance on this car. I had a special main leaf made to raise the rear about 1 1/2" for tire clearance and I'm having the same tire to fender clearance problem with the front. I replaced the monoleaf with a reversed eye model A spring but I don't want to raise it any more so I guess I'll be buying smaller diameter tires for the front. Bottom line is I built it way too low to the ground.

Roger, you can never be too low in a HotRod, just set your scrub lines and reverse engineer things ;).

I'm up to my neck in the wiring process this week. Probably won't finish until the end of the month. I've got another week or so to work then I have to lay off for a couple weeks. You can see I'm running relays for many of the circuits because I'm using the original rebuilt model t light switch and ignition switch along with the more traditional cloth wiring.
