I got the grill shell back from paint, I didn't like the way the grill shell looked from the back at the top (back side) so I closed it all in.. Look's better that way.. I also added a peice acrossed the bottom front to give it a better look as well..Now all I need is the body back..

Since this is the first t-bucket I ever built.. I had to try my hand at building a top for this thing..

I think it will look cool once it's all covered..

Randy, Looking very nice, and YES they do need that third mount in the rear for needed strength, because the roads are very hard on top bows otherwise... and building it so it does not touch the painted body is something that has always been needed Glad you are getting it done...

Randy,

I really like that one piece top! It looks great too! Just one question, is it going to be a cloth top or an all steel/aluminum top?

Separately, the grill shell is a real show stopper! I like!

Thanks Jay... I'm thinking of wraping it like they do the speaker boxes.. With fleece material and fiber glass resin, First to give it a foundation, Then cover it with pad and cloth... That's the plan for now.. I never used fleece that way so it will be a first as well as the top.. We will see.. Trying to keep it light..
