Bill I Would have thought you would have milled out each chassis rail and mill each cross member from aluminum. I am thinking you should cut the doors and trunk lid open and mold them from the same aluminum you used on your hood.

Instead of the Boyd Alumicoupe, I am thinking the Bill Davis AlumaCuda!

hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, I am kinda at a stand still at the moment, trying to figure out exactly what I am going to do with the chassis, this is allot tougher than I expected, the biggest issue is I'm not quite sure what size front tires I am going to use, I have mocked the body and engine and frame rails up where want them and there is not alot of room for the wheels to turn if I go with a wide tire, Hemi's are very wide to begin with and add the headers to the side like I have and it gets really tight, I all so can't decide if I want A arms or struts on the front, Bart I plan on cutting the doors and deck open and I have actually thought I would try and see about making them from aluminum, this has been a tough build all ready for me from the start, I hate to make it even tougher! lol we will see how it goes! thanks for the interest every one, hope fully have something to post soon

Front Runners or somekind of other really narrow front tires would fit into this build. And Flip Nose would really make justice for that engine, since it could be seen bit better then. I mean that flip nose, which could also be taken off, but it would still be functional. Hard to explain, but I hope you got it.

Looking forward for more.

well I have made a little progress finally, I made a set of rims for the tires I had, I really wasn't that happy with them, I scored some Mickey Thompson Sportsman's from a friend :D and of coarse the rims I had made for the tires I have are too narrow for M/T's, so I have to make another set to fit these, Posted Image I wanted a 5 spoke wheel of some sort, and after a lot of studying here is what I managed to come up with, I think they are gonna be ok, I kinda like emPosted ImagePosted Image I had to stuff em under the cuda to see how they lookPosted ImagePosted Imagethanks for looking!!

satisfactory, Bill. Please proceed



kidding aside, Bill, the wheels look great. I recall discussing wheel designs with yousome weeks ago and these far exceed what I had expected you to come up with. They have a unique look, one that I'll wager to bet required an extremely tight tolerance to avoid life in your scrap barrel.

Very impressive [again :o ]
