Just checking in to say howdy. Built more T Bucket & C-Cab bodies in 45 years that most guys. Sold Rod 'n Race Fiberglass and finally retired to the sunny south to umpire Little League softball games.
Welcome, I really like the R&R tupperware Topolino body.

Unfortunately I found it about 6 months after we went to the effort of making our own mold from a not quite perfect tin body I found down here. We only made three bodies and then went back and had a 12 month "re-evaluation time". We havent got started again yet.
