WOW... :blink:

 

That is just incredible... I have a project that I want to do, and this build is giving me encouragement to give it a try. I just need to order the stuff to do it.

 

Keep up the great work, I definitely am keeping an eye on this project! B)

I failed to mention how awsome the rod ends from R&B are and how easy they are to join to the tubing . I will get some more work done on the weekend on the front end and Lenco mounts. Could anyone tell me where is the best place to get coil springs thanks.

Beautiful workmanship there.  As for the coil springs, I just wind my own.  That way you know they'll fit.

Thanks you for looking at my project and kind remarks. When I start a new build I do a lot of research and the places to get the right parts. I try to do more scratch building each time a new build starts so try the build as their is a lot of guys here to help.

Hi guys back with a few photos of my proposed paint idea and decals that i am attempting to do myself for the first time so the two basic colours will be Yellow Pearl (bottom half) with Purple Pearl on top and remember this is just a ruff setup.  It has taken a lot of time to sort out the layout and colours and to keep wiyh an idea of the past sponsors of the time so here we go and i would welcome your coments thanks lol Darryl.
