    Front suspension mock up....
    Bone's are drilled for OG Ford perches to insert and will weld in. Axle mounted in front, kinda suicide, I guess....to help get the front a little lower.
    Also set the engine in place...just 'cause I couldn't resist....:D
    Once I get the engine and trans mounts made and their weight on the front end, I'll finish welding up the front and cleaning things up....then to the rear.:)

    Define "wacky"......haha!:D

    The "plan" for now is blue metalflake frame with white pinstriping. Same blue flake on dash...white accents, vinyl, etc....
    Body??? Not sure....mild....maybe a satin blue with candy blue fogs.....or white with light blue fogs, not a big fan of white, but alot of '60's show rods were white....whatever will hide some of the many scrapes and bruises this old body has...

    But who knows....still to early to tell what I'm gonna do....haha!

    This thing is NICE! I'm getting anxious for my T coupe to arrive here in Aus, I had an idea of a very similar build to yours.. Looking great with that front sweep and axle setup, and I love the dash! Keep it comin' :)

    Mounted the rear ladder bars today, cleaned off the extra crap from the 8.8 and tacked 'er in....
    Also boxed the front frame area and installed new kingpin bushings in spindles. Hubs are at the machine shop being turned to fit Buick drums....(psst...Wayne, are they done yet?) :D

    If all goes according to plan, this should be the stance/ride height.....

    Hope to have it rolling in another month or so and push 'er outside for a better look...then pull body to finish welding up the frame.:)

    Made some motor mounts today.....
    Cut the backs outta some Chevy truck mounts for the block plates, welded some scrap tubing to it and added a little gusset. The mount will use a urethane bushing.
