So I picked up my latest project a 41 coupe that the PO had channeled 12" over a Mazda truck chassis. After a bit of thought I realized this wasn't going to work for me, finding a stock 41 frame in the UK is just about impossible so I decide to make a frame. Thanks to Tommy on the HAMB I had a set of plans with the dimensions and reckoned I could work it out. I'm going for bags with a Jag front clip and Chevy rear so to start I got a Jag clip. The first problem was buying it blind of a so called trusted trader, normal story I sent cash he jerked me around, when I finally got the front end it had been torched out of the car was rusty and had a bit of accident damage.. not happy. The first thing was to remove the springs and drill out the spot welds that hold the spring retainers in to the frame, this will allow me to fit the bags. Once out I found a bit of rot so this was repaired. I placed the clip at the correct position for a 114" wheel base then started to work out the front of the frame. I ordered 2.5 x 5" box for the main rails following Zibos superb build on his 40 so taking the cue from him I started to lay out my frame in wood so I could work out the cut angles. I don't have a jig but used a bit of RSJ to clamp the parts to when tacking and welding, worked OK for me.

Once the front was done I started on the rear kick, again using wood to work the angles I came up with this.
