    A year ago, I was measuring where I wanted the rear end to be at on my T Bucket.

    And as of this week. May not seem like much, but in my world of a soup and water budget, it's a milestone. I'm hoping to have the body VERY soon.

    Thanks, I think it`s pretty cool. Started as a basket case, chevy frame, "gone", rusted out NY car, to a custom frame, built 440, 4spd. 8-3/4 sg rear. Can`t wait to get it on the road!

    Still a long way to go, but it is better than the rusty shell with no floors sitting on poles it was a year ago

    Once again it's been longer than a year, but this is how it turned out.. Of coarse the engine and trans is out of it because I'm building a 428 for it, and converting it over to an automatic due to health issues..

    This is about a week of progress. Now stalled due to rounding more parts up. I converted my sedan to a 2 Dr short door coupe. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks AW1950!
    I seriously plan to start with a better canvas on my next build
    On this one I figured I would use this as an opportunity to learn. If I could bring this back I figured anything else has potential.
