IMO doors on T-Buckets are virtually redundant. You can literally step in and out of them.

I have a 23 T-Bucket, no doors. I suggest you go to http://www.nationaltbucketalliance.com and go to the tech forum threads. Lots of info about cutting doors but if your Dads T is a fiberglass body, cutting a door and reinforcing it with wood is a major operation. Best of luck if you give it a try.

I am building my 3rd bucket, and just cut a door in it last week. My body has been made 8" longer and 6" wider. Lots of work but well worth it. Email me

Hey Vince, your are correct to a point. Some buckets sit pretty high with real tall tires in the back and tall suspensions, so it can be quite a chore climbing in. Throw on a top and sliding in "Dukes" style is feat best left to the young and slim. Typically, people just put one door on the passenger side to make it easier for "the ladies" to slide in gracefully.

Mine is low and no top so no real need for a door - yet

BTW, the paint is looking killer on the '34 Hope to see it in Loiusville next year!

No problem, you can buy the door kits from Speedway and others. You can even buy a new body with the doors installed

Me too, I've been in Austin all week and go back on monday. The things we do for money
If I have time after being gone, I'll try to put belts in the T. Too many accidents this week on the board.
