I got tired of scratching my head over the front suspension and decided to move on and make a little progress, I removed to upper coil over mounts sense I'm going to use a strut type suspension, I went ahead and soldered it in place, I was getting tired of trying to align everything as I was mocking up other parts....IMG_1368-vi.jpg

I kept on working on it after my last little update, so I figured I would update it a little again, here is the cross member soldered in place, I will add some bolt detail to it later onIMG_1375-vi.jpgIMG_1376-vi.jpgIMG_1377-vi.jpg

I all so got the rear cross member completed with the drive shaft loop installed and  ready to solder into place, as well as narrowed the frame rails down to except the floor pan, this needed to be done to keep the floor level with the rockersIMG_1379-vi.jpgIMG_1378-vi.jpgIMG_1380-vi.jpg

after soldering the rear cross member into its final place I will start on the rear frame rails, thanks for looking

Yeh, Bill. You may want to consider running it across the Barrett/Jackson auction block when it's done. Let's see if we can get the first $1,000,000.00 model. Plus, that would provide you with the money to buy more tools. :)

 

Looks like you're off to a great start on the frame. The center cross-member looks cool. Good engineering.

 

Don't make the mistake I did and leave your peanut butter samich on the hot brass. It burns the bread and melts the peanut butter! :(
