    My grandfather (95) had a black and white hard top as well as a turquoise (?)and white rag top.he had had others over the years. I believe a turquoise and white hard top and a yellow and white rag top? He would love to see these. Great job on them.

    1/8 c cab
    O.k. I have always loved t buckets and c cabs. A number of years ago some one on here started a cab back when I was into big boys. I was so young and foolish it seems then. Lol. I loved the idea of it. I dint know what ever happened to it. The body was supposed to get molded and I wanted one. Never saw it happen. There is a British c cab from the seventies called "revenge; I really love the style of it. A Scottish gentleman has found it and restored it to a different paint scheme. Rumor has it that the mold was found and a very few select bodies were offered. I know a fellow Australian that bought one and is doing a show rod with it. There are a couple things I do not like about the back of the body. So I am taking things into my own hands. With several measurements of a 1915 t bucket I am going to try to piece this together. I do not have all of the measurements, so some will have to be eye balled. Hopefully it come out ok. I tried the Times to make the bottom front half of the body and it did not look right. I finally found out that my square was NOT square. So I had to buy a digital protracter so that I could also do 60'angles on the frame also. Now I'm getting some where's. The idea it's I am going to make a buck. Then a fiberglass mold of it. Then I will make a fiberglass body from the mold. This will be my first time ever working with fiberglass. So we will see how it goes. This is where I stand today. Merry Christmas.

    t bucket
    I am after at least one measurement of the big t. I have several measurements for the 1915 and 1923 t buckets in full size. However it covers mostly the length and only like two heights and widths. I need more before I can work on a master of a custom 1915 c cab. So I will take it one step at a time. I will be starting at the fire wall and working back. So the first measurement I need is the width and height of the tunnel opening. I am specifically looking for one if possible on a model that is channeled and running the Chevy motor. Thank you.

    Looks like you gave me a ton of home work. Note to put on the learning cap. Thank you very much.

    You speak of a special clay. What is this special clay? Thank you.

    My thing is I do not want San 1923 t c can, I want a 1915 t c .cab. different measurement. Lol. I always have to be difficult.Thanks I think I am understanding the process. Will have to re read the thread tomorrow. Do you do the resin, then cloth then resin then cloth again? Thanks

    That is very cool. For the most part, the body is easy enough to do I believe, it's the curve on the cowl that will make it difficult. I think it's just a hair under under a half inch radius. I could cheat and use a router on a block of wood. However I think that with the profile it might not be just right? The idea of bondo though it's good. I like your body process that you shared. What do you use to glass and hire many layers. Thank you

    I mean creating a body, from scratch. However I understand that probably includes making a master or a buck. Is am looking at doing a 1/8 scale c cab of my own design and think it might be easier to do it that way since the body will bee over eight inches long. Thanks

    Fiberglass bodies
    Hello. I was wondering if anyone has made fiberglass bodies for their models? If so, I would be interested in learning the process that you use. Thank U for any information.

    Well like I said, I am interested in the whole aspect. The only scanner probably capable of use in this degree is a hundred grand. I don't think the home printers are honestly good enough yet either. So out of my league. But still interested when the time does arrive. Thanks
