    here is the latest - have been gathering parts for the last few weeks - think I've found a slant six - steering box - rear end - made the sreering wheel - fabed the front radius rods - scored a small drum for a gas tank - built the grill shell frame - am working on the hide away headlights now-made a shift knob and hung the front spring - still under $ 100 total investment but this is taking forever - Jaxx

    A question about axle travel at the frt spring location - how much clearance do you have set between your frt spring and the top of your axle - I am setting up for 1/2 in from the bottom of my spring and the top of the axle - is that enough ?? - 1 1/2 in between axle and bottom of frame ?? - jaxx

    Looks like you have the same set up I have, almost. Mines from a 68 GMC/Chevy van. I need to shorten my main leaf. Its to long, but no spring shops here. Once the weight was all added, the shackles are to close to the axle pads. Let me know if you are doing any thing differently. Down here you got to use what you got, and thats what exactly what i did. Also need to get it to an alingment shop, think i need a bit more king pin angle. Ice man
