    I have to reverse the eyes on the springs, then have Joe in Ponca City to drop axle and adjust spindles. 92E0D9EE-270E-4C6A-919E-19A46818C375.jpeg AF37B673-BFB3-4674-B19E-90545F411BAF.jpeg

You got some nice pieces there and it's always good to see under way and come back to life. I know Builder R,P's are dang hard to come by. Enjoy your project and I'll be watching.

    Great project. You might think about some sort of torque arm for those rear wishbones.

    krlon32 ; Yes sir, I have another set of bones that will be used for that. with a 1/8'' plate welded to the side of it. I have one made of 1'' tubing on my 28 coupe, with 1/8'' plate on it . Has worked fine for over 10 years.

    Your design looks good, should hold the rear fine.
