1923 Ford Model T Bucket Roadster

I just Purchased a 1923 Ford Model T Bucket Roadster the other day. I figured this was a good place to start documenting my work and possible get some info to help me out with my build. It came with a 1962 327 Corvette Motor with Camel hump heads and a T350 Transmission along with a 9 inch Ford Rear end. It has the original Frame although it has been boxed out. The body is a Napa Yellow and needs some work along with Interior. I am looking to enjoy it for the summer and then do a full tear down and have the Frame Powder Coated along with a full Restoration of the body and clean up of the Drive Train and Motor.

Welcome to HR.com.

Congratulations on your purchase. You will have a lot of fun with it and the rebuild won't be that difficult either. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you need help. There is plenty of knowledge her and people are very willing to share their expertise.

Welcome Merec1. And nice looking T.

I have one small suggestion. You might want to downsize your photos before loading them into your journal. Yours are quite large and when folks click on them we can only see a very small portion of the car. It also raises havoc with people who have dial up internet service. I usually size mine about 4" x 6" and 100 dpi. If someone wants to see even greater detail I'll provide them with a shot at about 200 or 300 dpi in my photo journal.

If you don't have Photoshop or another image program, Microsoft has a free little program for adjusting image size. Just go to this page , scroll down until you see "image resizer" in the right hand column, and the click to download and install. Its very easy to use once you have it on your computer.

Pic size

Cboy,Please realize that you know more about computers than me.I don't understand about the big pictures. New Interiors told me the same thing about mine.When I pull up the T bucket pics they fill my screen up and down but only about 2/3 across. If I hit the little circle with the + in it then it gets pretty big .Whats up?

Hmmmm, not sure. Maybe it has to do with different browsers and how they read the picture sizes. When you go to Merec1's journal and you click on one of the thumbnails, does it show up really really large on your screen?

Actually, quite the opposite...and I'm feeling a little sheepish here. I just went to Merec1's journal and used your little "click on the +/- circle" trick and got the picture to a viewable size. So you just taught me something I didn't know before.

I'm still guessing that Merec1's pictures started out pretty big when they were uploaded and might be a problem for dial up users when they click on the thumbnail, but at least I know now how to get them to a decent size on MY screen.

When I click on his pics they are just fine but if I hit the + they get too big.

Nice looking bucket, I have one also. Unless you are real short you are not going to like that windshield. Everything will be hitting you in the face. Those performer windshields look cool but they are not real functional.

good luck with it
