Kick ass build!!!!!!
Fantastic work, can't wait to see more.
Sick craftsmanship! That's gotta be the lowest Deuce chassis I've ever seen.

very nice, love the stance, and as always superb work!
Looks awesome! I like the mopar steering box! Great craftsmanship. Killer stance.
Really like the looks of this one! Will it get paint? If so,what color?
I really like this build...... very well thought out and awesome workmanship......
Pure CAR PORN ! I love it !
Absolutely amazing work!
You are one hell of a craftsman with metal and you make me want to throw my welders all in the dumpster as they must be busted as they can't do those welds.
Looks killer...Every time I think i've seen every way to build a 32 chassis, someone throws me a curve.
That thing is KILLER!!
Love the stance.
Gotta see more !!!
Nice build I will follow this one for a while.
OH, Oh, Oh... That panhard bar setup just makes me feel all fuzzy.
I just sent my car to the crusher..
Kudos to you! Great craftsmanship and superior design.
I didn't know you were building a coupe. Guess I have been busy working out the bugs on my Roadster. As usual you really threw yourself on that coupe. I like that Pan hard too..
Sweet!!!!!! Very nicely done.
Wow!... just WOW!!
More build pics please!
I like it...it's got some similar themes to a lowlow coupe built by Pinkees a few years back.
Very nice welding and interesting to see some creativity in the design/engineering.
What happens if he gets a flat? Seriously like a flat on any corner and that thing is laying frame.
Love your build quality and engineering you have a very discerning eye.
It's those smoothly radiused 32 rails that let you ski along like a snowmobile, rather than jack-knifing end over end.
In all seriousness though. The only way to get that low is to have your axle out in front of your frame. It makes everything else about the build super headachey and complicated and frustrating....steering box, steering arms, tierod, panhard, shock mounts, clearances, rad mount, spring travel/rebound...etc. Lot of extra work for those extra couple of inches...but if lowness is the desired effect...voila.
I've seen some setups like this with a rigid L shaped braket coming off the top of the framerail...up and out over the top of the axle. Designed to mount the rad on...but also doubling as a failsafe for a busted main leaf or a broken spring perch (rare). However, that wont do much for you if you blow a tire and your frame is lower than your rims.
Can't live forever, and doing everything by the book all the time can make you a square
This car is freaking awesome. When I close my eyes and think of a hot rod, this is what I see.
