Can't wait to see it. You don't f__k around. Making quick progress.
Those factory cast exhaust manifolds ar killer! How do I get a pair for my '54 Ford Club Coupe(with a 351W/ AOD)?
That will be a very cool shop truck, I dig the unibodies!
Try making an intro too!
that will be one nice ride when you are done.
Wow, yours and mine kinda look like twins:
thanks again for making this happen!
its really all your fault
trying to get it done for the Springfield swap, and so i can get back to normal paying work!
i have no idea
they where on teh motor when i pulled it outta teh mustang, i just , from what I've been told they are some rare factory gt pieces? not sure, rare or not they are going to work just fine.
photobucket is taking too long to load photos, im beat, pics tomorrow!
we got the front suspension all in and welded up, just need to make shock towers, and the bag brackets. i also finished up the pan hard bars and links. still need to do up the rear shocks
also pulled the axles out of the 9" again, i wanted to have the axles drilled for small ford pattern, to open up wheel options in the future.
Way to go. Love your style Ryno, cant wait to see this thing draggin sills.
I see the rust in the quarters. How you going to handle the rusted out torque box? :^0
Mine's rusty too.
looking good, im building a 63 uni right now... not really hamb material though
I this thing turns out anything like your blue caddy, it's going to be awesome!
Lookin' good, subscribed!
I'll take full blame!!!
Love it Ryno........love them Uni's.....
Once again, thanks for the kind words guys!
Thanks. I don't plan on finishing it to that extent,atleast of tonight!
Didn't get a hole bunch done today either.
Found some old cragar mags and installed the freshly re drilled axles
To damn hot in the shop ( 115 degrees) to be welding
Ill hit early in the am and hopefully make some progress
Again thanks for the kind words and support!
Hell ryno, I might just make a road trip down from Fair Grove if you dont mind visitors. I'd like to get an in-progress look at this beaut!!
i got the mm2 all buttoned up, frame boxed in, and the 2.5" z in the front frame rails done today, oh and mounted up the motor and trans mounts. with the frt z and this cobra gt whatever oil pan on my motor im goign to have to rebuild and section every single f'in x member in this thing.
some random shots....
yeah nice work, and fast as hell too.
need less to say im beat. ive been working at this all day from about 8 am to about 1ish am everyday in the heat.
Nice! kick'n ass n takin names! subscribed, cant wait to see more
Hey ryno I got a couple questions. Is this a homemade crossmember kit or manufactured and what is the distance between the top of your spring hat to the center of the lower CA mounting bolt? Looking really good so far and cant wait to see the finished project!!
damn, nice work. blows me away how fast you work. keep up the good work
Very nice! not sure what your plans are for mounting the bucket seats but i repro the ranger bucket seat brackets that will fit your floor and seat tracks....
i know... someone with your skills can make brackets real quick but thought i would let you know.
mine are lazer cut and very well made. pics in my album.
its a kit from jw garage i believe, my buddy is a dealer for them. it's decently priced, definitely not the nicest, but plenty good enough for what im doing here, i mean it has 2 arms and a spindle with some brakes, good enough for me!
i measured the distance for you, but forgot the exact measurement, i believe i hooked the top of the hat at the frame rail, down to the cl of the lower a arm bolt and it was 10 1/8"....
thanks, my body is paying for all the 16 plus days.
pm me some more info and prices, sometimes it just doesn't make sense to make something if it can be bought, skills or not, time is money!
Well not sure if you had seen the thread that I started about a week or so ago but it was about front end geometry on a '66 F100 with a MII frontend. I'm having problems as far as it being twitchy and the PO had installed a Fatman crossmember kit and the measurement on it was right at 10 inches. And according to ELpolacko here on the hamb, that measurement should be in the 8.5 inch range. Evidentaly it screws up the caster when the control arms are spread apart that far. I'm really interested in seeing how yours turns out. I am going to check my P/S pump and rack as its got a chevy pump and ford rack which, if the rack is the earlier design MII style can cause twitchyness whereas the later style T-bird rack will work with the chevy pump. Anyway just thought I'd pass this on.
It would be nice if Steve built the Dakota crossmember again.
I kick myself for not buying one when they were being made before.
