How many shop hours does it take you guys to bag one of theses frames
body on or off?
this chassis as is in this post was done in two weeks after hours and a day or two shop days
body on and modified stock front no mustang II
Quality work with attention to detail! thanks for this post, it is an inspiration! Q; do you always T off for both bags in the rear?
Damn, makes me feel a little better since you spent that kind of time on it. You're posts have really helped me a ton so far. I built the c-notches and welded them in last night. Looking to do the 4 link this weekend. Slowly coming along but seeing a little progress is a great feeling. Thanks again for your posts.
body on the frame is harder climbing in and out and under over and over a lift would be easyer
thats 3 guys on it thow
What brand headers are those? Sandersons? Did you have to use small compact starter?
we usaly use sanderson headers those are speedways i think and you dont have to use the small high torqk starter i would recamend not to any ways they cost twice as much if you break down you wont be able top find one it happened to me on the fuck you 54 i went back to the standard small block starter

I just got the Fatman stage IV and tail dragger from you, and I'm doing the install now. This thread answers a lot of questions man, killer job! On the chasis you did, are those tires BF Goodrich bias ply's? And what size are the wheels? 15 x 6 by any chance? Thanks- Will
Hello Alex, that is a great install, im over in the UK and have just bought a '51 styleline thats running stock rear, i am getting a 10 bolt '72 camaro axle soon and want to install a taildragger kit, I have just emailed you on ebay asking if you would ship a kit to the UK, but is this possible to fit with the body still attached to the frame, and do the C-notches interfere with the body?
well done on a very informative thread
Great thread Alex, amazing work
What happened to all the pics on this thread?
great work as usual
Any updated pictures or links to pictures would be great if they are still available???
None of the pics will up load
We are doing a 54 Belair frame with all the Gambino parts and I remembered this thread fro awhile ago.
Was wondering why all the pics don't show anymore?
Any help here?
Bump for the Pictures...wanting to order but would really like to see the pics
