Spirit industries has a free set of plans for a T bucket chassis. you can extend the main rails or the length behind the kickup to make it fit what you need.. really simple to build.. good level garage floor, chop saw, 220v welder ( Arc, Mig, Tig whatever you have/ good at using ), 36" clamps, 4-6' level, 1 good tape measure, heavy duty hole saw and 1" drill and the requiered steel materials and you should be good to go.. just don't weld everything solid right away, keep checking it square. add a few cross supports THEN weld it solid, and check square once again... this should enable you to use off the shelf 'T bucket' suspension parts

T Build

I've built a few T buckets with 2 X 3 or 2 X 4 .188 wall tubing. chassis depends on how it is to look. highboy? draging the speed bumps ? I bought the CCR plans for the last 2. one running a Jag IRS rear, Youngster on the Tbucketeers site has free plans you can download. Stock 26-7 frames have different front and rear crosmembers. It depends on what suspension you plan on building... look at a few cars to decide what you want.
