    Dang!!! Some real talent going on there. Now, paint the car in different colors, like the VW's of the late 70's/early 80's. One fender one color, the other another; same with the doors and rear fenders. The body itself another color, as well as the hood. Call the car "PATCHE'S, because that's what you started with. A bunch of loosely fit together metal sort of patched together, and look at it NOW! That's really amazing what you've done. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    The front axle is a 56 f100, with a disc brake kit from
    Speedway, it uses chevy calipers .

    The axle is the right width for the spring pads? Or is that a different width frame than stock?

    I altered the axle and the frame slightly to get the spring positioning correct.

    What a great save! Did a tree fall on it and do all that top damage years ago? Bob

    The story goes that it was a race car in Canada. Had a bad wreck and was retired, then it was left in a ravine for quite some time before being sold to a man in wa. State. He then put it up for sale and one of the big players in our local car club scene went to look at it and told him that there was only 1 guy around that would be dumb enough to tackle that job. It was me!

    Just freaking amazing what this man can do with a piece of metal. No such thing as 'too far gone'. Another major save for the books, well done Jim. Can't wait to see it in that Purdy paint!

    Thanks, I am very anxious to see it in color. This has been a very long project, it will be a huge accomplishment when it finally hits the road.
