No rest for the wicked on New Years eve, Today we spend the day making 1 of two new wheel wells and they are flush to the frame and mounted on top of the frame rail to give room for the wide rear tires. Also reworked the driver side vents and clean them up and have the old firewall in place for location reasons

Brute just showig off the ride high with the rim rings and stole "Runt"s front tires, Also the rear roll pan is being made first with sheet stock and then will be changed over to brass. You can also see the braces in place.

Thank you for looking every one. I have been hard at work and trying to get ahead on this project knowing it will slow down real fast for a couple of months and then I can pick back up at it after May.

 

 

Floor board and chassis day, Here in the pics you can see the slot next to the frame as this is where the lower 4 link bar goes into. The frame has been lower flush with the floor in the hoop so I can add back to it where the shock connecters are located and also the 1/2 rear frame floor is drop 1/16 inch on top of the frame so this will give more room for the exhaust

Thank you guys for the great words, I have been trying to get my brass work better and was testing this tonight as Mark Jones just makes you want to step up to trying new things as you watch his work or even see it in person.

 

Was able to get the fuel cell plate in tonight on the rear floor, Now I will build the frame back up also was able to do the roll pan in brass as i'm not sure if I like it or not.

"Brute Force" getting the front end to set low enough will be the hard part. First took out the inner fenders as you see and will have to relocate them up higher and wider for the front wheels!. Also you can see the ride is now level with the tire size as the rear will be a little higher then the front.

Wish I could done this more in brass but was not sure how it would have looked being epoxy in place then having the .020 sheet plastic insted. This was a lot easy'er and more smoother when I got done with it.

 

did the floor pans to fit the exhaust tubes and mufflers in place.
