    Reason for using it as I have always used the f1 boxes on my hot rods. The clamp is no different from the flange coated onto the steering box. And with the block of steel I'm able to use the 32 steering box holes in the chassis. And no will not put a Toyota steering box my hot rod.Thanks

    Ok so I got the front all boxed. Now to move on to the middle of the chassis. I used industrial chassis dog legs to strengthen the original k member. And did step boxing plates with hole again.

    I love the steering solution looks beefy as hell. 360 degrees of grip on that thing. This is gonna be a cool coupe! Following along.

    I wish that torsion tests were run when building frames. It would sure be interesting. I did mine by putting jack stands under the rear kick ups and one under the center of the front crossmember. I held the rear down by hanging a SBC short block from the rear. A board across the front let me apply leverage. Just measure the drop of the front frame horn and calculate the applied torque. I got less than 1/16" with a load at of 800 ft-lbs. Stock was over 2"
    The frame is really a work of art!

    Cool build, Great metal work. What year Cad motor and what did you use to mount the g/box?Nicest looking stock exhaust manifold also.
    Rhd drive and the starter is a pain alright,ingenious job on the steering box mount.
