    It has a 4 inch dropped axle in the front with split wishbones. The rear is a transverse spring with P&J ladder bars. That is going to get redone with 36 rear wishbones.

    IMG_1260.JPG IMG_1259.JPG IMG_4190.JPG I kind of lean toward the artillery wheels. But that's my 2ct worth.
    I also think you could use a few more louvers, like mine

  19. I'm planning a little get together for traditional hotrods and customs fairly soon. Any interest in driving to Tucson?

  27. The thing I dig about it is the "orchard posts" Those are the right stanchions for a hotrod and you have them laid back properly as they should be. Can't wait to check out this beauty.
