    With the chassis 80% set up the body was removed and sent to Traditional Speed and Custom in Pittsfield NH for some minor body and paint. Mike picked a dark green,,,,green looks good on anything!!

    Eli shrunk some panels, bumped out some low spots than sprayed it.

We had to re adjust the pinion angle and installed a double toque arm.

    Nice work on the torque arm brackets!...I scrolled thru 100's of chassis tabs on Epay looking for the ideal one that could be easily modified for the situation. Milled some out of 3/8 aluminum but was concerned with strength. And they just didn't look right. Little thing as such are sometimes the biggest hurdle.

    Spent a few hours at Mikes tack welding odds and ends.

    Since then he’s removed the engine and stripped the chassis bare. It’s off to get blasted, than a full box job and final welding.

    Here’s a few pics of the rear wishbones. They meet isn a stock configuration and pivot on a 7/8 Heim joint. This lets the rear end move with no stress.
