Very impressive looking suspension work. Your headers look great. I notice some blue colored medium you're using for temporary attachment of parts. I'd like to know what you're using with the idea I could try that also.

Thanks. The blue stuff is poster tack. It is a must for mockups

Small update. Got the tie rod done and added  U-bolts to the axle.  Just need to figure out the drag link and pitman arm as well as build shocks and the front end will be done.  Also realized I will need to cut a hole in the hood so may go with this scoop.

Nice concept, excellent scratching and a perfect stance, what's not to like!

Hobby Lobby sells this white version of that medium, "Simply Tacky." Once you've used it, you can't live without it. Along with temporarily attaching parts, it's great for holding small parts during painting.  Elmer's Poster Tack comes in blue or red and Michael's has it.

Thank you for the information, I'll have to try it. By the way I like your '50 Ford in your icon.

Shocks, drag link and pitman arm done. Everything moves when the wheels turn. Now back to the engine.

Thanks guys. Got some pulleys machines last night. Might have to change things a little because of belt clearance issues. Will see after I get the blower pulleys done. Also found a nicer blower in my stash.

Really like the direction you are going with this one.  A blown I-6 is not really common, but that is why I like it.
