      Taking a break from my 2 major builds on the bench...Ive always wanted to do a T with the TDR Offenhauser Powered "T" roadster Offy engine so I decided to do one..My plans are for a clean and simple build with good detail but not over the top..My plans are to finish this build in a relatively short time frame and allow me to get my mind cleared abit before getting back to the Pro touring Camaro and the dragster builds.

    G'day Mike. Nice work on the headers there mate. Glad to see you've got the magic dust on the job too. But isn't it messy stuff if you get it on your fingers and other things.
    Bull dust, blowflies, & the outback. Heaven on earth!

    mm.Pick me up a pack of the foam in the craft section heck it out... One word of c
    I recently met up with Rodger..AKA "Oldtinbender"...He turned me on to some self adhesive foam sheets he found at Walmart in the craft section..he uses it to make his scratch built Offenhauser Powered "T" roadster seats..It got me to thinking so I pick some up today and did some experimenting on the the T interior...Here's how it worked out..

    No kidding man! At this rate you'll have your 63 Vette body and SBC stuff before this get's done. So much for a "quick n' simple build huh? They never stay that way. I do have the package ready to go...now all I have to do is remember where I put it so I wouldn't forget to send it. I am gorwing to LOVE post it's!

    Thanks guys..I hope to have it finished in about 2 weeks (If I can stop adding stuff to it) It was supposed to be a "simple build"...Supposed to be is the key word here but I just can seem to leave it "simple" ..All and all if I put all the time spent over the past few months in a lump sum ,I only have about 50 hours in it...Maybe another 20 or so to finish.. Maybe..

    The little T will in the garage for a bit...I need to complete my dragster by the end of the year and due to the dragsters complexity (and the fact the dragster takes up the entire bench), It will take the rest of the year to complete... im parking the T under glass for a little while...

    I see the fuel connections on the Offy, but where is the linkage for the butterflys in those intake pipes?
    I have never had my hands on the real thing, did I miss something?

    No they arent there yet.. Good eye..It will have all that when I get back on this build...The engine is just sitting in the frame at present and still needs more stuff... Gonna finish the dragster first as its part of a build off im in on another forum..Dead line is Jan 1st 2015 and it will take that long to finish...
