Check with Speedway and see whose body they are selling, or if their bodies are their own product.
The United bodies are cheap and you have to work on 'em to uncheapen them.
It is always best but often not practical to see the body you want at the place that makes/sells them before you buy. Then you will some idea of how much work they will require to be as good as you want your car to be.

I have had good luck with speedway products so I would get mine from them..All of those glass bodies are going to need work to get them real perfect and the question comes in is just how perfect are you after..?? And just how is your budget holding up??

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I am a member of the National T Bucket Alliance. You in west va. there is a place in western MD. Rod and Race that make some great parts. They may be close enough to pick up the body and save the shipping which can be pretty high. Also in Knoxville Tn is Hermas Fast Glass that make an excellent body. I am building my 3rd bucket from Hermans. Hermans 865-577-1941


come visit with us, nothing but t buckets on this site.
