    So I bought this 60 F-100 about a year ago and after a couple moves to new houses I began to build it. I just got it back from paint. I know you guys stray from the flat black but I just couldn't resist. I went with a Satin black body and gloss black roof, interior, and engine bay. I'm looking to put a 390 with a tri carb setup or a 429. I have a 57 grille going to put on it. I've already lowered it using a Sid's drop axle and mono leafs up front and a flip axle on the rear.

    I need pics! I have a 57' with a front clip and a 429. The thing is a blast to drive but it wont pass a gas station unless you drop $40 in it!

    I tried loading them with the HAMB iPhone app but I think you can only see them from the app cause I noticed I can only see certain pictures also. Ill try again in a bit.

    As soon as I get home ill take some more pics. The rear end has a good amount of clearance. But I'm still going to put a small C notch in the frame. The pumpkin doesn't hit the bed as it has about 8" of clearance. I also removed some leafs from the rear. As for the front ill have to modify the steering a bit to make sure of no bump steer. I am having clearance issues with the front crossmember and axle. I am going to make or buy a new tubular crossmember to correct that.
