    Awesome build thanks for the pics! Can you show how you mounted the radiator during the build.

    That's a Mopar steering box, there's a few good threads on here regarding this box for a economical way to do sprint style steering without breaking the bank. They work really well and the ratio is perfect(and you don't have to reverse it either) as long you stick to a pitman arm length between 5 and 7 inches, I made this pitman 6".

  13. Beautiful work but one question. Where I live at that chassis height I could never get in and out of my driveway, Will this get raised before hitting the road and is this more for show than go ? Maybe the roads here are just that more crappier than they are there:cool: Either way looks killer.
     
  14. Wow, nice work man! you should have your own shop with your skills!!!

    Sweetness!! Impressive craftsmanship and attention to detail. Great stance! Love the pitman through the crossmember; my chassis guy pulled a similar trick with the two parallel links on my '53 Bel Air, mounting the forward ends inside the framerails at the start of the upsweep just ahead of the notch. Enjoying the thread & anxious to see the final results.
     
  17. Great craftsmanship, you clearly take great pride in your work!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I just keep coming back to this thread...man that's some nice work.
     
  28. This is an amazing car. It reminds me of a car Pinkee's built from a couple years back.
    There are shots of it on their website. Keep up the great work. I'm following this one.

    That is killer looking so far.
    I gotta question it's ability to drive being so low.

    Great welding and design though!!!
