    Haven't posted anything in quite a while, had to remember how. We are really proud of this chassis we just finished up. New x-member designed to flow with Johnsons radius rods.

    Looks like gennie rails. Is the plan to run full fenders? It'd almost be a shame to cover up that nice work.

    Damn, you guys, my buddy Elpolacko and Bass are IT as far as chassis as art kinda builders! I do nice stuff, but I'm constantly blown away when I look at the work coming out of any of the three of you.

    Beautiful frame ! One question, with the rear radius mount welded in where it is, will it still be possible to drop the trans out from below once the body is on. maybe it's just the angle of the photo, but it sure looks tight to do it.

    Pre 40's FoMoCo front panhard bar, fits great doesn't it?

    Yes, the top plate unbolts from the underside so everything will drop out. We also build our floors to be removable, as originally done.
