Homemade Model T style body

Does anybody have any links that tell how to make a T bucket type body from scratch?I'm not talking something that involves forming metal..just something simple like a metal frame with a sheetmetal skin like a dwarf car body.

T bodies are simple, but have quite a bit of style that would need skilled forming...
Without forming you wont end up with anything that resembles a T...

Have anything against fiberglass? Companies like Performance T, Speedway and Polycast make a basic shell so cheap it is hard to justify any other aproach.

i remember an article in custom rodder where thry built a T-bucket for 2000$ including engine 350, tranny350, rearend 8", frame, front suspension and body. i think the frame and body and front axle with spindles, steering and rearend mounting was under 1000 bucks.

a complete kit with everything less engine and tranny ( and wireing etc) is about 3500
