    Hairy Glass made our T body...we all know about their quality, and the service is great also.

    Awesome

    Thanks guys, Didn't know Hairy did altereds he's right down the road. Now for the stupid ? that may not be able to be answered. I have a Massey Chassie, ex Vern Moats/Alexis Dejoria. I want to retain the use of my F/C body as well so I have to leave the rear body mounting tubes on the chassis or be able to unbolt them and switch to a stubby for the altered. Kicker is my Fresh air bottle and puke tank is back there. Any advice on the easy way to do this?

    Thanks again guys,
    Trev

    You will probably have to run a T body. They have a longer back section and you can put more items under the turtle deck. I wanted to switch to a different body but I have my battery, catch can and some other stuff under there. My T body is in two pieces cut in front of the turtle deck with some dzus tabs welded to the rear of the chassis to hold the deck in place.

    Trevor......
    we made our body to tilt like a F/C. you can also run a 2 piece body, but i think the 1 piece is a little cleaner looking. we have plenty of room in the back of our car. there is room for puke tank and 2 full size batteries if needed. if i can help in any way please let me know. i can send pics if needed, but it's a pretty simple deal.

    We have the same deal,the 23 body was cut into 2 pieces.the rear deck is not attached to the body.We made some stands for it and hose clamped it to the chassis so we could stuff all the junk there.Rich Venza makes a nice product also.
    A1 in CA was the biggest pain to deal with I bough a nose from them,they said once ordered you cant cancel it.Thats fine,they told me about a week to 10 days to get it.Well a week goes by the 10 days the 2 weeks ect.called them repeatedly,no answer then they would start to put me on hold then hang up.Called the credit card company they got involved.They said cant cancel it thats our policy Called on a regular basis.Then on the 7th week they said they were canceling my order and not to expect a refund since I had placed the order.Then these idiots sent the nose.It was the poorest quality I ever saw.I still have it we use it for a place for the cat to sleep in.Harwood also makes a nice one as well as S&W out of PA.
