    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.

    Look how much mud was on the rear fenders. Someone was frosting a cake. Over 1/4 thick..

    Stellar progress man !

    With that 425 in there , a fishplate on top of the engine mount / frame rail would be a good preventive measure ... :)

    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.

    The redone wheel is back, and so is the new Limeworks column.

  28. 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.
