Had to notch her a tad. She should lay out now.
I just wonder .... You have no snow ????
so did you make your own links for the rear axle?. or are those from a chevy truck setup?
I love what your doin with this car ! I cant wait for more updates.
hey Thunderroad...have you decided how much your gona chop it yet?
Really cool car! Gonna follow this for sure!!
The rear links are stock. Just cut them from the torque tube. With the links that long with the panhard also long, no real movement in the suspension arch.
Alittle more done. One step closer....
Look how much mud was on the rear fenders. Someone was frosting a cake. Over 1/4 thick..
425 mounted with tons of room..
Little tunnel work...
Stellar progress man !
With that 425 in there , a fishplate on top of the engine mount / frame rail would be a good preventive measure ...
Man this thing is going to be sick...
X2. Always better to be a little overkill than a little underkill.
Looks good otherwise! I would love to do a early 40's custom at some point in my life.
Oh. After a little sorting through the photos on my phone, I found a little inspiration for you.

A quick peek of her on the ground...
im picking up my 401/th400 tomorrow bro im right behind ya
The car looks great! im full of envy as my car sits in pieces! can u plz post some pics of how the trailing arms are mounted to the frame? I really need some advice on how to do mine. Thanks...
The redone wheel is back, and so is the new Limeworks column.
This is great.
Im loving it, and like the idea of chopping it, but also love the old paint/patina, and the chop will screw that up. Are you planning on a repaint, and if so, what colour.
By the quality of work done so far, it would look great with a new paint job also.
Lovin this build. The car looks great on the ground
I love it ....
The wheel seems really clean and smooth !!
