    Had to see what it would look like with the wheels bolted up, and make sure i got the wheels spaced out correctly. 16651165_10208464493434313_843857268_o.jpg

    Thanks for the pics. Keep 'em coming.

    I'm getting ready to run the brake lines on mine. I'm thinking of running them through some fuel line and through the boxed frame. I'll send pics soon.

    I'm sure there are some pics of the frame in one stage or another on here somewhere but I'm not sure of a "Build". The project has been delayed so many times from health, moves, other projects and builds. I've got a Dodge Panel build on here as that's in the works too.

    I used 1"X 2" rectangular tube and made mine real long. They seem pretty heavy though. I'm thinking of redoing them.

    I bet mine weigh a lot more. Of course they are probably a lot longer too but...I'll have to hang mine on a scale.

    Made a trans mount today. I was trying to avoid running ANOTHER cross member, so decided to make something that can be bolted to the existing one. And with it being removable , it wont get in the way of pulling the trans. I still need to do a little finessing to it, but you get the idea. I have it slid over so I could take a photo of it. transmount.jpg

    AND....finally have the rear end in the car, just needs shocks. I know where they are going just waiting on them. Oh, and yes, the panhard bar is NOT level at the moment, car is not at ride height though. =) complets with panhard.jpg complete angle 2.jpg

    What spring rate did you decide on? Also what kind of gap are you leaving for the bump stops and the quarters?

    i have looked and looked and cant find a 110- or 115 spring rate, so i had to go with 125 which was the lightest i could find. as for my gap, i only left 3/8 gap when the bump stops hit.

    Got some stuff done today. Started with the wheelie bars. Got the straps drilled and mounted. Fortunately I didnt have to try and arch them, i bought some pre arched and cut to width straps from Stott's Speed Shop wheelie bar strap.jpg
