    Well just picked up the tubing for the frame on my next project (not mine) a 1964 grumman aluminum van.Was going to put it on a chevy truck frame but that wont work.So i going to use the front and rear suspension off it and build the frame.Should have the body off this week end and then start on the frame.I will post some pics then.

    Well got some more done got it setting on all fours too high.Got some 2.5 dropped spindles and some 3 dropped springs way too low.Got some different springs sets good.But the owner wants it lower so i am going to z the frame in the front 3'" and will have to lower the engine as much as possible.So i wont have to do any metal work on the inside.Going to pull it back off tomorrow and start cutting again!!
