    Nice work. I hope that the owner can actually be able to drive it down the road as low as it will be when it's done even with the bags aired all the way up. I'm pretty well positive he would get hung up in my driveway no matter what.

    Nice work. I really like the time and effort that you put into the welding. Over welding rules!

    Great fab work, no doubt.

    Shame to see all that work go into a car that still has that super slammed, air bagged, over chopped, WAY extended front end look. It's a look that has been played out.

    I'd really like to see you apply those fabrication skills to a more traditional build.

    You are doing some nice work. I really like the motor mounts, nice touch. The tunnel ram also makes it look mean.

    Love this thread. Just started building my 29 and you have really hit the l on the head. Any tips on zding the chassis? I'll be running rear bags, I was thinking 10"? Love the stance of yours, what angle is the z in that? Keep the posts coming!! Can't get enough of this!!

    I really like the safety tubes tucked in neatly, retaining the classic look. Also the front bones mounts tucked in the frame joint - classy. Well done. Lots of ideas for my build in here!

    Well, I like your work, you're a talented young man.....destined to stay young, you'll never grow old if you keep welding with no protection. If you want to become a talented knowledgeable old man, cover up, melanoma kills, remember that. Old welders cover every inch.

    it has been a while since i have had a worthy update. but here is some pics of the floor i have been working on

    worked some more on the floor and trans tunnel. got all the pieces formed and fit. once the body comes off i can do some hammer and dolly work to get some of the rough spots worked out

    when working on the front part of the tans tunnel, i needed to shrink the back edge to get it to taper. so i used my reciprocating hammer and shrinking dies to do the job

    fit in the car after some plannishing and wheeling
