Okay to review here is what is happening. I am putting the motor from this model
Into this one
Okay major update on this one I have been working on the Frame and trying out a new process. Tell me what you guys think what should I change does it look good.
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.

Steve, man you have some cool rides and man I love this one!
Here's a couple mockup pics of my '74 Caprice. Keeping it simple '70's style white on white with Surpremes. Gotta get it lower though.

A Jimmy Flintstone 1957 Ford Wagon.
Body and paint work donated by a fellow
club member(Thanks George).
I got two 57 Ford Fairlanes to donate the rest.
Added the mandatory Pegasus #1109 Dz's
and slammed the rear end. Got a roof rack but
I don't believe I'll use it. My Bud had added the
custom front pan and I had to modify the front
bumper to fit.Working on the cargo area right now
and will go from there.
