Here's another T construction publication I found in my stuff:

PETERSON'S HOW TO BUILD A STREET ROD, ISBN 1870642171, 1985...2 part article (reprint) by Tom Medley on building a very nice T roadster top* for the Volksrod.

*EDITED for accuracy...

*having reread the article after all these years...the top is not a stock T-type that folds. It looks stock and is "canvas", but the oak top bows are fixed with steel brackets (not pin connection) to prevent movement, and the front wood header is tied by strap steel to the rear bows...it is explicitly intended to support the windshield when forward-support rods aren't used. The top is a "Bob Lee padded" style and so the bows are not visible thru the cloth. It is removable (without folding), but it is not a 5-minute job like folding down a stock top.
