    I love that bucket dude!

    also that mustang doesnt look too bad, you find a 60s mustang that DOESNT have rust in the 1/4s then it either lived in arizona or theyve been replaced in the 80s
    Yeah this one has had a full pan put in and also a trunk floor already. So while I'd rather have one that didn't need that type of repair, at least it's already been done.

      Since I derailed my own thread lol, maybe this should just be a general shop thread for me. I don't think I can change the name.

        Just got back from Troy NY where Eddie and I delivered the T bucket body back to the shop. We placed the body on the waiting chassis minutes before the owner showed up to check it out.

        He was blown away, saying that the best decision he made was letting Eddie have free reign to do whatever he wanted with the paint job.

            OK - we've been patient - where's the photo of the X frame all re-done and looking sweet?
            LOL

                No Pontiac updates. Haven't touched it in a month. First all the jamming before we went to Detroit, and since I've been back I've been getting a bike done. May post pics of that, it's a little different. Mustang is coming along, wheel houses, quarters, etc. Haven't updated the computer yet either, so pic posting isn't going to happen until then.

                        Any updates on this build? I must say I like the craftsmanship!

                          So I do still have this Pontiac. I welded up a new X-member and bought a nice pair of doors for it, but that's about it. I moved this past fall, and after throwing a battery and some gas in it, and a piece of plywood and a 5 gallon bucket to sit on, I drove it around a bit then into my trailer for transport to my garage at my house.
