Body on frame @ Mercury Charlie's garage
At the risk of driving myself crazy, I'm holding off on spending for the roadster while we get the Tall T closer to being on the road. I simply can't divide my spending in two directions and expect to finish anything. So until such time that the T is a running and driving period hot rod, you'll see very little movement on the A build. That said, here are some current progress shot of the T.
On its way to the secret bunker in Austin following a 4-day, 100-hour thrash. Engine is a 425 Nailhead backed by a Turbo 400 transmission and 9" Ford rear. Gears are a 3.50 which should put the motor right in its sweet spot -2,600 RPM--at highway speeds. 

Any similarity to Charlie's original Tall T is purely intentional.
