    This is going to be a Great Build! I can see you have some good skills turning rough stuff into good stuff. Look forward to more progress photos. Bob

    thanks for the positive comments . I am stuck far from my shop so I thought why not post some pics. this build has been going on for a few years . I am using this for practice as I have a few gems tucked away.

    I like dropping the top frame to "chop" it. I wonder, how much did you drop it? I figured I'd drop mine 5" or so, but I'm guessing that wouldn't be enough.

    11 1/2 " from the stock mount straight down to the rear fender bolt hole. I am going to cut the bows to mount it just above the fender line so if I ever drive it I can get insurance with fenders.

    A factory converter should have studs on it. The proper nuts to secure it to the flexplate are flanged, distorted thread lock nuts.

    thanks . I had since checked the converter and all the bits are there . you are right , studs w/nuts. I am going to need some more advice when it comes time for the passing gear hook up.


    thanks for the compliments guys. it helps motivate!
