    So after a trip to GNRS 2017 with my lil son n daughter, the lil girl asked for us to build a T bucket. Not my first, second or 5th choice of car to build. But hey, she was 9 and if that helped create a bond, I’m in.

    A year later I found a candidate body and frame. I shared with her, this is for us to build, she would have to help and go Sunday school.

    She hasn’t held up her end of the bargain, so it’s my build now. I had s goal to drive it to the LA Roadster Show last weekend. Didnt happen.

    Here are done pics of the body I bought. The frame I have made ( scratched the red iron channel frame I bought)

    Should be road worthy in a week or two, less paint

    Like, love it or leave it. That’s up to you!! I’m enjoying the build, learning a lot. And hope to enjoy it soon

    So I thought between the spare parts I had collected over the years, I could buy a few bolt on parts and the build would be quick. But it didn’t work out that way.

    Front brake lines look like braided stainless, but black. Nice. Are they readily available?

  15. Damn fine fab work,get those kids in the loop.
     
  16. Very nice!
    Those details aren't quick in case viewers don't know. I love it!!

    I see why you did it the way you did- but I'd rethink those rear wishbones and mounts. Maybe some link off the top of the diff to the rear crossmember?

    The brake lines are made by a company named Fragola. I’m sure you can order online. I picked them up at a local sprint car parts supplier

    Yeah I'm learning about bolt on parts not being quicker myself. In fact on my A frame I'm finding words like "universal brackets" actually mean "not even close"

    Nice build though ;)

    Want to do a t bucket one day.

    A few quick updates photos. Simply bored and frustrated at the same time right now. Hoping to be road worthy in the next week. I’m now shooting for a couple nights at Hot August nights, then make Bonneville for Sunday

    I’ll post some better pics later

    Did the first road test yesterday. I’m not sure if everything was great or not,,, because of the big Ol’ grin I had the whole time.

    A few tweaks to tonight. Then we can start the the upholstery. So far in target to leave for Bonneville on Thursday night.

    You can’t post it via the hamb line a photo. Really wish he’d just take that button away.

    Post it on YouTube and copy the link into your thread
     
  30. Cool build. Can we twist your arm in showing us how you do that type of wiring harness tying with the string? I love that.
