Good looking start.
I can only echo what the others have said. I would not chop or channel it and this is coming from a guy that pretty much likes to chop everything.
With these 30's cabs it's as much the width as it is the height and length.
Humans were much smaller back then....LOL

Here's a shot of me in a '36 cab which could be a little bigger than a '34, but not much. My upper body is normal height but my legs are dang long. So you can see 6" of room above my head, [the seat is in there quite a bit lower than stock I think], but my legs are scrunched up somewhat. I have a tilt wheel and leave it up all of the time.
My wife comes along for the ride sometimes and she seems to fit quite well. There is a four inch space between the bucket seats.
Good luck.

That's exactly the hat I would have expected you to wear, with the handle MercuryMac

I was looking up my ancestry in Halifax, Nova Scotia, out on Pier 21, where all of the immigrant landings paperwork is kept, when I spied this hat for sale and thought it should be part of my 'thirties ensemble'.
I was pretty excited about the hat but I did read some history.
It seems like my Grandparents and Dad came over from Scotland the second time, around the time of the Titanic sailing but they got cheaper tickets so had to sail on an old ship with little fancy stuff and no fanfare at all.

Be glad they were on a proven ship otherwise you wouldn't be here.

One might say they came over on rat rod rather than a trailer queen. Good choice.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Ya, I guess I should quit grumbling about my whole family not being 'trailer queen' people.
There's only two ways that I could have quit grumbling; [1] grow up and learn to quit, or [2] my grandparents could have ridden in style part way across the Atlantic.

I'd say that you are on track, then. Our history is just a starting place that we have no control over. The rest is up to us. Build on!
