    Here are many construction photos of the rear suspension of the car I'm doing for my wife. If you would like to read the first post here's a link.

    Very cool. Makes me want to start messing with my 1951 Plymouth Belvedere 2dr hardtop.

    You do some great work. It's good to see more Mopar getting built. Looks like you have some scrub issues though. The front could be fixed with bump stops (allthough it looks like your want to lay frame) but the rear looks like that lower axle bracket is so low, bagged up or down you'd have a problem with a blow out.

    You are a pretty welder. Or is it you make pretty welds? Maybe both. I wish I could weld like that on that 4 link bar! Very nice work. Beautiful shop too.

    I like the clean notch. I think a lot of people over notch their frames. With bags it's not like you are going to be constantly running that low to need an extra 10" of travel.

    I haven't even started on the major body reapirs. It needs inner and outer rockers, most of the floor and a few other rusty areas then the custom modifications. It will be a while but the chassis is mostly finished.

    Digging way back into the archives here...... but I was curious, how did you shape the upper and lower frame plates of your c-notch? Looks clean as hell and I love it!
