    heres all the pics from the old thred
    this is Hoptup Jalop's 52 chevy weve been working on ,it has a fatman altra low,gambino taildrager ,and a new product weve been working on ,"lil dave's" aka motor mounts ![​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    we've been monting the top for bars of the tri link on the front of the rear end housing ( instead of on top )to give us more clearance under the rear seat
    [​IMG]
    and we've moved the botom bars to the bottom of the frame instead of in the midle of the frame
    [​IMG]
    not 100% happy with the bottom bar that low to the ground but it words far better in athere areas
