Post Fiberglass T-bucket bodies

I'm considering buying a T-bucket body from Mas Racing. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of their bodies that would be of help. I like the fact that they offer a floor to go with the body, and their prices looks good.

Cool

Go for it man!I've heard all kind of good words on them from some people that I used to talked to who put a few together,including the infamous Cobra Kit Car.I think that you'll enjoy it as long as you don't wreck it!

How much are they asking for them?

Of course you know that the estate of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth is selling t-bucket bodies made from the original mold he used for his Outlaw show car.

I went in to mas and looked at the t bodys,there rather thin walled and could use some reinforcement,but for the price,and a little extra time,and some corrugated cardboard and fiberglass,it make for a good deal.But be aware of there return policies and shipping charges.

MAS bodies, I believe, are ultrathin wall made for racing, not streeting. Any I ever knew who ordered one was sorry and either sold it to someone more optimistic or used it a flowerbed and bought something better after consulting with a bunch of bucket builder/owners.
I love technology.

Bought mine from Total Performance. Might cost a little more, but it's very sturdy. I've only run it one season, but have had good luck with it.
