ok...I give up...what is it?
whatever it is....that is some nice work
ever felt like that?
thanks, its just a chassis im puttin together for my 53 chevy "cruiser"
Looking good bro. Keep the pics coming
very nice tube work. nice welds.... gonna be an excellent ride.
Looks like someone has been studying Art Morrisons front ends. Looks good. ? With all those rigid links in the rear, do you get much articulation?
thats it for now. gotta do shock mounts, exhaust, check rear travel and pinion angle then solid weld everything next. thanks for stoppin by to see my project.
yes, i have been. i wish i did a few more changes to their design though. live and learn.
as far as the rear, i hope to have enough articulation, but not too much. i dont have any space for sway bars and dont want the car rolling over too hard. not that i recommend binding a suspension setup up to try to replace the job of a sway bar, but i think i should be okay.
nice work,keep us posted on your build.thanks
thanks for all the positive response. i will post more pics as i go.
i like it so far , nice work on the frame , hope you save the inliner 6 for future use
TOP NOTCH Mat!!!
Excellent craftsmanship, but i wouldn't expect anything less!
I'm really looking forward to seeing it together.
Then you can GET ON THAT 62!!!
jeez, you're makin the rest of us look bad
thanks tony! i cant wait to see that 62 of yours! hope to catch up with you sometime here if i ever get a chance to escape!
You're welcome! It's well deserved man.
The 62 is running and on the road. Just gotta shoot the hood and finish the exhaust and it's 99.5% DONE!!!
Stop by anytime
thanks, but i sold the 235 to a friend, and built this 283. just a mild motor, lots of machinework, 1957 FI heads
Awesome work! Keep the good stuff coming!
Wow!!! This is gonna be nice! Please keep us posted
i may have to! i got a weak spot for super tastefull 62 impalas. you gonna bring that out to jesse's party this year?
damn! Looks good!
HA! Thanks man!
Ya know, i hadn't given any thought to bringing it there. I'm just so used to driving my truck everywhere and figured the 62 didn't fit in. guess i'll have to think about that.
And yeah, stop by!
With the roll center that high in the rear it won't be a problem. I think if you replaced that bushing at the rear of the wishbone with a johnny joint it would ride better.
the other I saw was it looked the tube (cross shaft) for your upper control arms is tapped. I have seen those loosen up in the past so you might want to weld a tab somewhere and drill the head of the bolt for safety wire.
I really like the trans mount.....simple, elegant, sturdy, that's as good as it gets.
Donny, thanks for the input, i actually had thought of using a super-pivot joint on the back of the wishbone, but i didnt have one! so i just went ahead with the urethane, the last two wishbone setups i have done i used all urethane bushings like this and have had great luck, so i hope this one works too. thanks for the idea on the upper control arm mount, ive never tried this design on a car for myself before.
thanks, i was kinda happy with the tranny mount also, cant wait to get it all finished up.
Very nice work
