    I have a Rod Builder Magazine here on the end table from 1958. There is a guy in it with an axle exactly like that on a flat head powered drag car.

    Too cool chris, I love the gold wires.

    Thanks everyone for the mock up pics. Some quality stuff being built.
    I love the before and after shots too.

    Heres a couple of mine with the mock up engine. Trying to get all of the issues worked out before I install the good engine. I'm having a time with the header on the driver's side. Does not look like I will be able to use the block huggers. Anybody got any suggestions on what I can use?:eek:

    Not too much farther along, but just got some rockers and cab corner patch panels to get rid of the lower cancer. I think the Styrofoam bed is gonna stay!:rolleyes:
     
  14. I mocked up my 33 ford pickup........looked it over and hooked up some wiring..started the engine and it never went into the garage again. I just kept driving it, leaky pinion seal, no floor and all. Had a length of 18 gage electrical wire for a throttle cable...2, 5/16ths bolts holding the box on etc etc.

    This has sort of a Karmannghia feel to it.

    Here's the latest mock-up. It's pretty much the final mock with a few things needed to be done, mainly the steering link and shocks.
