    So how radical did you go?
    From simple to extreem, how about showing us your A frame in its incredible Z'd glory? Modified A or fresh tube stock.. how about exposing yourself? :D

    I cannot remember what the kick-up in the front and rear is. I've got a file collected on all the math, measurements and such, but it's sitting with the car, for reference.

    Here's the roller.

    Mine either....:eek: My frame is a TT frame with about 20 inches removed. The front kick-up is a rear TT cross-member made narrower by taking about 5/8" out of it. The rear cross-member is from the original T frame.

    This thread could not have come at a better time...

    Here's a selfish bump up ... I want to see what you guys did too! Great examples so far, even if they aren't A's.

    Someone with a "Bleed Swept" frame should post up. They're cool looking frames.

    Swept in the front for 3" of drop, and the back of the frame is a 16" Z.

    Cool, CRH, I really want to check your car out before I get working on mine. It's got a great stance.


    Since I'm sitting at the table, hanging out, I figure if we're going to talk about nasty frames we should bring up one of the nastiest of all... Death's Doorstep.

    Heres pictures of the A I just bought this past week. It's my first true " Hot rod" somebody's abandoned project. Not sure what the specs are on the frame but it difinately has a nice stance to it.
