Good morning Bryan. Sounds like it will be a good day to get some work bench time. I am on vacation this coming week and hope to get back to my Corvette replica.

i lobbed off the frame rails in front the radiator mount so i could extend them a little bit, and make a mount for my suicide axle...

Posted Image

i dug though my resin parts, and found some better finned drums, and backing plates
Posted Image

i also found some plates with bolts on them to use for the axle.......a battery, and beer bottles!
