    This is looking really good, CGkidd. I dig the glass frontend, transverse leaf setup and white powder coat. I'll be keeping an eye on this one...

    Nice build, I like seeing people doing cars other than Ford or Chevy. Good luck with it.

    I was wondering who scored that car! Good for you, bad for me! That will teach me to think about something too long... LOL. I saw your car listed on C.L. long ago. I recognized it from the flame job. It looks like you had the same idea as me as how to build it, but you actually have the skills as well. Good luck and congrats on one nice car.

    bestoutta3 I worked with the gentleman quite a bit to finally get it. Got lucky finding a fiberglass front clip and have been lucky with the build by having good friends to help with it and give me great ideas on direction of the build.

    Be home Friday. After being U/W for 4 months I am ready to get some work done on the Stude. I ordered the material to do a new trans cross member, My rear housing should be done. I ordered a new 8 3/4 nodular center section and plan on getting my gears set up. Hope to paint the frame and get more work done on it.

    Nice Studie! I have some friends that would probably love to have that glass front end.

    Cool change of pace seeing a Studebaker being built a a gasser. That body style looks great to me with a nose high stance. Great work so far. Can't wait to see it on the road/track.

    Took the rear axle over to my buddy "Kmember" here on the HAMB. Told him to have fun with it. He did.

    Hoping to get the backing plates and make the bushings for my leaf springs today. If I can I am hoping to mount up the rear axle tonight or tomorrow.

    Damn ran into a problem. had my fuel cell set up to mount under the floor in the trunk but it blocks the rear axle. damn now I got to change how I am mounting the fuel cell. it is too cool to hide.

    Well started putting front end together. I will have to pull the radius rods back off for painting. Need to make a new panhard bar, mount backing plates and brakes then I will be able to sit her on all four wheels. I am really happy with how its looking so far.
