    Looks good! I noticed a bit of your frame in the one pic Did you do the work? Those holes are a nice look not seen too often on a T Bucket. I like it.

    Well folks I fail again to produce new pictures of the old t bucket project... This will be one of my last messages on this post as my car has taken a Major change in direction ( for the better )... Just tired of seeing the cookie cutter speedway motor tbuckets that weren't around when I started this project... Here's a little teaser for the changes to come!!!

    Even though it is taking you some time it is good to see your not taking the easy way out.
