Sounds like the bead is separate on a T. My 31 slant W/S was bead rolled into the side quarters and surprisingly, came apart very easily - but that particular 31 was really put together like a '32 and had no body wood except for the top. Interesting car but was sold for financial solvency and to purchase my '31 roadster.
