Terry Brown T-Bucket Sets the Fad-T Standard

It gives me insight on the chassis and mounting of stuff. I think I can now take it from here. The bucket has been a dream but now I can see some of the details. I have ordered several books on it along with several books on Flathead engines. Thanks. Dave
Using this book to setup a tbucket with a decent amount of power. It's nowhere near complete, but with how complete and full this guide is, I've been able to push through with little to no issues at all.
I bought this download 8 years ago and I built a 1927 c cab from it
Loving the book! Still slowly collecting parts. I messed up when originally ordering online. Your customer service went so far above and beyond to help me get everything straightened out. It was very much appreciated.
Great fun. great read. Took me back to the 50s when I was a teen.
Great book. Got me off to a great start.
Fast response, exactly what was described.
Very quick and easy, and being electronic, I will be able to access these files anywhere. Very thorough and gives a lot of great tips. I recommend getting the full package than just 1 or 2, it is well worth it even just for having it on hand.
Been wanting to pull the trigger on these for a while now. THANKS!!!
Within days of the purchase I had a frame created and the info is awesome. I am well on my way into the project. The books are a great blueprint to building a great T Bucket project.
No issues with download and printing. Some stuff in there that's us well before my time and I wouldn't be able to learn about without your books
Have me a while pile of ideas that I can adapt to my project
Lots of good info but lacking some of the details I would have liked to see. Good start, but only a start.
Easy to read and excellent visuals
I like it. Provides a lot of answers to how to do many things that arise during the build, especially when it is your first and there is lots to do.
