    Great job! The chop is perfect and I like the fact you chose to sit it on a 32 frame. They look so much better on a 32 frame!

    i mean, did you put spring mounts in the wishbones, or what? it looks like the spring is behind the axle. just wondering how you did that.

    Thank you! No, I sold the coupe to build my Willys gasser. As soon as the Willys is done in April, I will be building another coupe-similar but a little different than the green one. Thank you for the compliment.
