T bucket frames are easy, 3x4" box channel, build a box period, thats it. Look <a href="http://www.tbuckets.com/street_rod_store/" target="_blank">here</a>and you can see what I mean in the frames section. No mandrel bending needed, if you need any more help let me know, I'm essential building the same thing, with a few added kicks.

Josh: I mailed out those plans on Thursday. I added some other books to help the process. Again, Good Luck. Remeber a good weld makes a good frame, a great weld will keep you off the pavement. There is nothing scarier than to have a weld break while your flying down the highway. I had a rear kick-up break while I was turning in the driveway. (Pure luck) Going slow and at home, and I was the rear. I'd hate to think of what would happen if it had been up front. That's why I really push for a good weld........t

T, your a teacher with a rod, very cool indeed. Brave man for being a teacher, thanks for doing it though, I have lots of respect for teachers, just couldn't do it myself, too contraversial, hehe

try being a teacher at a job corps! anywhere you are tho, it's not a career anymore since it only takes a few loose words, sexual discrimination, flipping someone off and you could be out of a job. for someone like me it's a miracle i haven't *****-slapped one of these suckers in the almost 3 years i've been here.
hey t-buckets rock. it was the first car i actually paid for in 73. worked delivering drugs to get the $900 for the not finished 392 powered pick-up. traded it to an outlaw for his panhead when i moved to l.a. in 75. my biggest expense was trying to get a diamond tuck interior in it which i never did and trying to get that crappy push button tranny to move. never could burn rubber believe it or not, something to do with vacuum probably. cheater slicks didn't help either. fyi you can buy a completed one for $12 grand all day long on autotrader.com

Somewhere, someplace, in a box up in the attic, behind the crib, next to the waterbed parts, is an OLD Street Rodder magazine with a WONDERFUL article on Frames You can Make. I may need to find this for a project I have in my head. When I do, I will Xerox it and send it too you.

Oh, yea. Flip out the little woman and chnage the letter. Maybe an X bucket. or a G Bucket.

Madd: You can't mean Street Rodder Collector's Issue from the fall of 1980???? I also have the American Rodder that did the road test for the first T that Total cost built back in the 70's. To everyone else that posted about teaching. I think it is the greatest job in the world. I've been doing it for 24 years. I have two masters degrees and a doctorate in education. All that means is that I can put up with more ---- than lots of other people. And as far as watching what you have to say or sexual discrimination, that's in just about every job. That's why I stayed a street rodder. I can be as alone as I want to be or in the middle of a crowd with fantastic people who have the same interests that I have. God this is a great sport.......t

Axle: You don't owe me a thing. When given the chance pass on a good deed or a kind act. Now that you've had a chance to check out the plans; what do you think...........t
