    Here is a quick update from the last few weeks or so...

    The dash was a bit dicked over, but pretty solid. I had to cut some chunks out of it and make some panels.

    Here it is in the car with the big Stewie gauges.

    The quick change is a magnesium winters unit with a gold trak diff.

    I LOVE quick change rears. They are so easy to build, even I can do it.

    Now, all I have to do is put it under the car. I built some ladder bars out of 1 1/4 seamless DOM with 3/4 ends.

    Here she is with all the brackets tacked. I still have to box in some stuff but this is the general idea. DON'T LOOK at the mufflers. I'm not really sure what I'm gonna do yet..

    [​IMG]

    Here she is on the ground holding her own weight for the first time in her life. She rolls and everything.

    One more..

    Next I'm gonna finish the rear part of the floorboard then she's ALMOST ready for the body to come off.

    See ya, -Abone.

  6. Abone, I am so jealous. I am not that far behind you though if I can keep up my pace. Looks really good man. I really think you should keep this car and drive like a madman.

    Honestly, I have though about leaving the Model A at home and taking the 34. Is Rocky's car gonna be done???

    Save me a beer (or Diet Dr Pepper.) -Abone.

    Thanks for the bump, Unionville, I've missed catching up with this build. Abone, it's come together really well, which is no surprise considering your past builds.
