    Thanks for posting the chassis update photos. It looks awesome.
     
  2. Not really a full blown update, just a little progress. Brake lines finished, engine/tranny installed – hopefully for the last time.

    That Chassis is spot on man! I can't wait to see the body on in just to prove how dead on the stance looks right now.

    Any updates? I am think of joining the club, since I qualify now.
     

  18. Nothing major. I've sealed and coated the floor and now I'm doing finish body work on the firewall so I can bolt the body to the frame for hopefully the last time. So you've got a Vicky now? Welcome to the club.:D

    Wow it is really coming together. I have one more car to build before I can start on my Vicky. But I am glad to see yours is coming along. I can't wait for the body to go on as well.

  20. looks good ,had to look twice at the front brakes -very cool!
     
  21. Everything is looking super - it's going to be a stunner once completed.

    I just picked up on this thread and I'm glad I did. I'm in awe at the work you guys do ...

    Now you're just lying. I have yet to make anything that pretty.

    I have to tell you, in a world of over-building, your frame stands out. It is simple and functional art. That k-member is absolutely perfect.

    thats a good looking chassis!!!!!!!!cool color.
     
  28. Well, I wet sanded the primer on the firewall again, sealed it to the cowl sides with seam sealer, and shot another coat of primer. It looks like the pic I posted on page three so no need to post it again.

    In between sanding, I started looking at my cowl top to decide what I needed to do to it to get it ready to go on. I decided to weld in the cowl vent (33 Ford pickup) before permanently bolting the top on. Here are a few pics:

    Centering the vent in the cowl top:

    Pieces cut and fit:

    First time using my new panel clamps; I love 'em but I need more: IMG_0101.jpg


    Tacked in:

    Vent lid and cowl placed into position for pic:
