    It took awhile but I finally got some good qaulity. I had beed searching hig hand low for some help putting this customer stuff (brokenspoke) back together and the good help was inside all this time. Just kidding but I could not pass on posting those pics. As much as I stear them away from it I think I got two gearheads to hang with. If the shop door is open I seem to get some little visitors from time to time.
    Anyhow we got the frame out of the jig a couple weeks ago. Got the stock 32 front wishbone 96% straightened, the motor mounted, tranny, shortened the driveshaft and torquetube , made new mount for the rear wishbones, and bolted everything else in place. I really am happy with most of the turnout, Gonna end up getting a F1 steering box, fq front shock mounts, and with a sedan sitting atop. Gonna hat to see this one go since I would love to set my sedan rite on it for MOKAN. Bill (brokenspoke) is supposed to come get it this weekend. heres the pics

    Them danged ole three dueces

    Looks great ! Didn't know that Super Bell axles allow for usage of the stock spindle arms - will remember that for the next '32...

    There actually 40 spindles and the axle was milled down to 2" boss to allow for the 32 stock wishbones.

    I would like to thank you Rusty...It was a pleasure doing business with you...I wish every venture was this smooth..I'm very happy with the end product...for any one interested, the list of the build is:

    original 32 frame, center crossmember and unsplit wishbone
    model A front and rear crossmembers
    Boxed front and rear
    C notch
    40 ford rear
    34 driveshaft and torque tube
    48 Ford radias arms ( rear) (short ones)
    39 ford toploader
    58 sbc 283 side mounts, I didnt want to mount on front of engine and rear of tranny..seemed like to large a load in middle.??
    Planning on a F1 steering (undecided if the pitman arm up or down)
    Superbell axle ( drilled)
    40 Ford Spindles
    40 Ford brakes
    So far no part newer that 1958...undecided about using a generator or alternator
