Default 1936 Diamond T with 6BT cummins

I thought I had started a build thread on here for our project, but I guess I haven't! I am keeping a blog on the build, so I will just post updated blog posts on here when I post them. I wish you could go reverse chronological on blogger, but I guess it doesn't work that way :P So, if you go to this post (the first) http://36diamondt.blogspot.com/2011/...diamond-t.html - then you can click on 'newer posts' at the bottom of each page (it's under the comments box). That should work to see all of the posts......

then, I'll post new links as I blog them

Thanks for the update, your diamond is going to be a killer truck when finished.

That should make a pretty kool ride. I saw a pair of 38 Buick headlights on Ebay that are pretty long - too bad they want $300.00 for them......

at this point, I think we'd pay that much for decent ones.... is the auction still on?

new post yesterday:

http://36diamondt.blogspot.com/2012/10/blasted.html

anybody have any ideas for fasteners for the rear cab panels (in place of the screw-head bolts). We plan to weld the cab together where it was nailed to a wooden frame along the roof edge and we will need new trim there as well.........don't have a CLUE what we'll use, the old stuff was way too far gone to salvage......

agreed, they are eye candy for sure! I just keep coming back to Mike Tyler's youtube video for inspiration - we hope ours looks very similar to his when it's done!
