GOOD STUFF! thank you! Ive always loved Kellisons, so much so that I have it on my "must own" list. Those late 50s sports cars like Scarabs always were cool in my book. Dean Moons Devin, The numerous Corvettes and early Tbirds built back then were also so cool

My son is sick with some kind of bug so I havent really been able to do much.  I was able to get the rear narrowed when he dozed off last night (the mrs is a 3 to 11 RN) i cut the ends off initially but it wasnt enough, so I cut the ladder bar indexing flats out as well and Im finally happy with the way the slicks poke out.  next step is to get some shop time and get grinding on the body so I can fit the chassis and start those mods.

Chris, I'm a purist, I admit that.  Not good or bad but as much as I want to look away, you're build has my interest.  Never thought I'd say THAT but.............good luck with the build and all kidding aside, I'll be checking it out.   cheers, tim

havent really touched this due to being busy, but I did cut off the front of the willys frame and glued in the front crossmember from a revell 3 window kit. this will allow me to run a transverse leaf up front and keep the car low like I want.

 

I also started a 57 chevy custom build for a FB group Im in. started a build thread today
