    I was able to spend a little time, and mock up my frame. Still waiting on King Pins, to mock up the spindles. This weekend, I will set a SOHC Block, and Heads, a Lakewood Bell, and my Toploader, with a V Gate, in the mounts, and start on the Pedals.

    Spent a little time, on my Project, and installed the rear end. I know I stepped outa the normal build, and went with a 9 inch, but I like them. 4.56 gear, Mark Williams Axles, and case, Strange Daytona Support. Thanks Front Range Driveline, for getting all this stuff in one place!

    After a Long Weekend, Because I work Sunday, at 4am, I thought I'd share a Happy Picture, of a 16x11 Halibrand, on the Willys Chassis. I will sleep good, tonight!

    Eric, You must polish the Hals. It's only fair you experience the labor of love keeping them bright and shiny. Makes the car a true Gasser.

    I think the Gibbs Oil Look, is going to be my Choice. Mag Valve covers, and Blower intake, are natural, as well.

    Is that an early (1933) front axle or a dropped one? Great looking build. Bob

    Tires are close, and I need to figure out what lugs, to use, on 1/2 20 Studs, against the Magnesium wheels.

    Thank you, I have been looking to build on of these, for a while, and I lucked out, on a local Body, with Paper!

    Long Day, I was at work, at 2am, came home, and my Wife and I got the Engine and Trans mocked up. I'm not 100% sure, of the fitment, but I will try to set the Body on this weekend, and get an idea of where things need to be. This is a First time kind of build for me, but I will move forward. And, the Firewood pile, is getting smaller...

  30. Are you implying that it is cold there? I just got 4.5 Tons of coal so let it be cold here as that will last a month.
