Re: Blue 1911 T , mother inlaw seat

This dealer in AZ has had several other "T's" up for sale, mostly speedsters and most of them have been of the Rootlieb body persuasion. Most are in the 20-30,000 bracket. Everyone I've looked at has the exact same floor board design. I've wondered if he is turning them out in the back room from a s...

Re: What have you done with your Model T in April?

The 13 Modern Speedster had turn signals installed when I got it, however the switch was below the dash in front of the passenger - very unhandy and also dangerous. I have now moved it to the seat riser under the seat and to the right of the driver a skosh, now it's easily activated with my right ha...

Probably doesn't count, but here is a comparison on a speedster.
I had them on this car for about 4 years, the same for the whites. the greys seemed to wear better, and never had any discoloration issues with the greys either.
