I got a little more work done, I got the cross members installed for the rear frame rails, and the frame rails permanently attached to the cross member, all of the bolts cut to length, added bolts to the 3rd member

Bill, the frame looks beautimus. If the brass didn't have the yellow tone, you could easily imagine this this setting out in the garage on jack stands.

 

Super fine work
