    That overhead is the money shot! Even looks better than from the side. Thanks for the added pics.

    Started on making a bell tool to punch my chassis boxing plates. Believe it or not I couldn't find any 30mm and 40mm here in Australia so I made my own.

    Some practice runs

    Here's how it turned out

    Started welding the inner boxing plates to hold the punched plates.

    Watch this space. I've changed direction for the front end. Work begins in the next few days. A relief to finally feel 100% confident in where I'm going with the front end.

    I also seemed to change my mine a bunch. Then I really like the look of the stock A axle out front tucked behind the grille and cut the frame horns off. No turning back now!!

    A busy few days working on the front end. I left the suicide idea and went the Doane Spencer / RB style. Ignore the spring perch's, they're coming off.

    Your 33 is on of my favourites cars of all time. I first saw it years back in a rod & custom magazine [ I don't remember the name ] I came across in a newstand here in Australia. It was good seeing it in MF too *2 thumbs up back at you!
