Wishbone placement worked out. King pin incline set a 7deg ready to make some mounts
Bones are mounted but I still got a little welding to do on the inside and some more sanding
Yep like he said, I,m off to the shed to work on mine. great work keep us posted.
Working to the spindles welding on 32 steering arm to my 46 spindle
Anyone have 35-36 rear radiuses rod bolts? like in the pic below
Man! Great looking chassis and great project!
Unless you want original bolts, you can get those from McMaster Carr or Aircraft Spruce. Your local Fastenall should carry them as well.
Yeah I'm looking for original bolts. I want to use as many og parts as I can
Very awesome dude! I'll check tomorrow for those bolts.

Very nice work, looking forward to this build!
Man. This looks great.
Got the spindle welded up and ground down then textured to look factory
Also got the inside of the rails where the wishbone bung goes thru. Going to drill a hole and safety wire the nut since I cant get a cotter pin in there.
I really like your build. I subscribed the other day to your build thread. Keep up the great work!
Found some original 32-34 perch bolts cant believe how hard they were to find. Also playing around with the shocks
Brake actuator bolt tab has been cut off they are originals
Very tasty details. You know me. I like the details. Wishbone ends and mounts look real good. I thought about using those ends as well but it kinda didn't go with right era vibe I was after. Did you TIG weld that steering arm modification? I hope so. You do some nice fab work. Looks like it will be low. I just saw your MG shock mockup. I bet you could figure out a way to put them inside the frame rails and have them hidden and still work. Just a thought. Unless you like they way they look and want them out there.
Yeah the spindle was tig welded. Preheated welded with high nickel rod then into a bucket of kitty litter to cool over night. Welded up nice and my buddy is going to take it to his work and Xray it just the be safe.
I like the look of the shocks and plan on polishing the body on them. I thought about trying to do them inboard but with pinching the rails so much there really no room for them.
Here's a few pics I'v just been playing around with checking the fit of the new subrails. Hard to believe they fit I'm use to having to cut everything to make it fit.
Love the front end set up.
I'm starting on the rear today
Very awesome. I probably asked you elsewhere but whose sub rails did you buy???
It's great to see some full-size photos of the quality work you've done. Very nice!!
