    All that rust would look right at home here in Michigan along with all the freaking snow.

    thanks! I've got a lot of help on this build, trying to hit the streets by spring. you need a gas tank? I've got an oval T tank thats fairly nice.

    Is that mill going in there? Or did I miss something?
    Looking good, nice work on the sub rails.

    I had the six in it for a bit but it was too tall and speed parts are overpriced so I decided to go with my old standby v8.

    Don't mean to sound uneducated but what does it mean to "flip the bells"? Love the way it's coming out. Nice work.

    The 40 rear is a spring behind, flipping the bells puts the spring in front of the axle

    Yup. Easier to shorten a tapered frame then to lengthen it and the rear cross member stays out of the trunk. In theory anyway
