  9. Looks good so far. I may have missed it did you decide to go twin carbs or trips? I would run the twin carbs myself. I really like the wide 5s, you just don't see enough of them used anymore.

    Looks cool. I also wanted to use my bed, yours is lower but we've got a similar spring setup. What are you planning for a fuel tank? I put mine in front of the kick-up...

    A bit more progress. Taking a lot longer than expected as we encounter curve balls... ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445272761.313654.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445272814.808050.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445272890.792630.jpg
    The infamous struggle of pedals. Running a hydraulic TO bearing.. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445273012.053730.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445273057.960254.jpg
    Thanks to the encyclopedia of hot rodding " ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1445273401.283675.jpg ,"the hamb", I added this torque arm to strengthen things up.."substituting a torque tube". Not pictured, but we also welded up some diagonals to strengthen my transmission cross member.
     
  15. Any more progress?
