    I think they get mixed in with different threads. There were a few real nice Z'd '32s within the last year.

    I'm just looking for some ideas.My frame has a straight kick up in the rear but I would like to beef it up a bit. I think my blower motor might twist it up with some sticky tires on it.

    Here are some pics of mine. A buddy of mine has a CNC plasma cutter so he is going to make me some cool gusset plates for the rear kickup

    Blown34coupe,
    No I'm not going to put a cage in it,it will only have a roll bar but it won't be NHRA or IHRA legal because I don't want to kick the back tubes out of the cab. It will be more for a little bit of saftey and to stiffen up the chassis. Have anymore pictures of your pickup?

    I know what you're saying about running the bars out the back window. I don't want to either but I'm going to get my chassis certed. I probably going to do something similar to Littleman's truck. Here's a link to my photobucket, I'm going to start a build thread soon I just wanted to get some more done so I have something to post.

    heres mine, nothing special but a little better to look at than just 90 or 45 degree angles. does anybody know if fish plates would be reguired, i realy dont want to i think their ugly but its better than the frame breaking in half.

    Yes. Definitely fish plate it. Put them on the inside before you box the rails.

    I must have missed that thread first time round Rodknocker. I just subscribed for later reference. That is outstandingly simple.
