    Great start on a truly nice ride. Love the stances, wheels look nice. I just finished my little 30 coupe.Couldn't bare to cut it, but like the looks of the finished look of cutting about 4 inches off the top.Enjoying driving mine around town and getting alot of thumbs up and waving.How much is the frame z'd in the back.Getting ready to build another car , 1931 Ford roadster and not sure yet about how I want to do the frame.Keep the photos coming on the progress of your rod.

    OK, finally time for a little update......

    First thanks for the well wishes on my new member of the family, she's awesome.

    Between having a newborn and one of, if not the worst summer Kentucky has seen(I grow grass for a living :cool: ) I haven't had a lot of time to get in the garage, but the past few weeks have spared me a little time.

    PICS:
    Got all the suspension pieces and parts painted and the chassis back together:

    Some more patch work on the chop/patch panels:

    I don't have much to update as I haven't got a lot done, but I did get the dash insert installed today. This is a Muroc Auburn style from Knect equipment. He's a super nice guy and this panel is very nice with nice hardware and instructions...anyhow enough with that here's the pics:

    I had to cut the wheel wells, I still haven't put them back in, buts thats the only way its coming down if its channeled.

    The LSRU, happens at kinda a bad time of year for me, but I plan to make it one of these days....

    Ok, I've been busting balls on this thing the past couple weeks:

    I have it running, driving and stopping:D

    Still have a long way to go on the body, but driving it around the block will sure fire up some inspiration to get to work!

    Here's a short video of it idling:

    No intention of hijacking your thread but can you give me a measurement that I posted in the pic...( From the back of the front cross member to where the front of the motor mount would be...) Eric wont answer me at all so I am left wondering.I need to get the motor mounts welded in so I can finish the front end...Thanks man..
