Thanks for the kind words. I've been busy with another project, so I haven't been able to do as much to the 51.
For the 51 front suspension I...
And unlike your other cars it's got a heater.

I don't have any paper patterns but I can tell you how I made it, it's easy.

Thanks Russ. I like your idea, but I got lazy and took the easy way out. The hole in my floorjack is 1.2" diameter, but I'm using 1" diameter...
Thanks for all the positive comments, hope this helps someone.

Hey Phil, Here's a pic of the inside of mine without the rear seat .
The cutouts in the rear window panel marked "A" shows where the rear seat...

Thanks, that's what I was hoping to hear.
I've got a 51 Chevy I beam axle I'm trying to set up with cross steering. I'm using the stock lower arms with the tie rod at the rear. I cut the...
Thanks for the links. I may buy a new one if I can't find used or rebuilt.
Thanks for the pictures.
