Here are some work on the wheels I made an adapter to connect the wheels to the spindles. Since I want useing stock rims I had to figure out something. The way this will work I can cut the spindels down and slid on this adapter and glue it to the rims.

Started off working on the roof again with some putty, I had a chnace to sand it down but didnt take a picture yet.
So do you think I should lower the end or leave it up in the air.

I have tried to create a new frame that will allow it to drop down lower and add in some Airbags for the suspension.
I purchased some hollow channel and begain to create the frame. At each point I put in a spline piece to give it more glueing surface.
Mock up of the frame over the wheels.
I started working on my airbags to see how they will look. If anybody has a spare rear end that would work here let me know I might replace the one that I have I buggered it a bit.
Here I was trying to rig up a spot where the upper link connections will go. it wasnt untill I had finished that I realized I had done it upside down.
Starting to put the frame together.

the next ones. But I took some solid rod and drilled it out cut off the little tube. Drilled a hole in to it and inserted some solid tube. Then drilled out some hex rod and cut off a nut size. Then drilled out the solid rod again and stuck it together. When its done I will paint the rods black and the nuts gold. I will also make some nuts and bolts to mount to the brackets I will make.

Then I drilled out the center of the larger round rod. The trick to use, I pointed my Exacto knife in the center and made a divit to fit in the drill bit.
I then drilled it out and cut off a section
Next I did the same thing with the exacto knife and then drilled a hole in the side all the way through.
Now you drill out the hex rod and then cut of a nut sized piece.
Here is your nut
Here is the assembled piece.
