    Chassis is sectioned, body isn't channeled, and it's a 6 inch chop!! Thanks for the kind words!
     
  8. Glenn,

    If you click once on the picture it will expand to a large size. After you enlarge the first one you can click on the arrow on the left or right side of the screen to scroll through the rest of the photos at the larger size. I base this on my MAC, I only assume it will work with a PC.

    Looks awesome, I have a 30/31 coupe I'm about to start on. What's your plans for paint, and wheels/tires?

    Thank you!! Bare metal is the plan for now, everything is tig welded! Wheels and tires I'm unsure of, actually any ideas from anyone would be much appreciated! Can't decide on wheel size and or to run white walls.....

    Thanks Guys! I will keep updating
     
  30. Man!, that motor is way up in the air. I got my Y block in my sedan and have a flat floor. Motor does sit low in the frame but I enjoy the extra room in the car. Very nice work so far!
