You may not be moving along as fast ass you'd like, but your work looks great! Very clean.

Thanks for all the comments everyone......here's a bit of an update. Just working on fitting the floor in the car now...it's too wide for my brake, so we had to make the bends the old fashioned way. So far, so good.

Nice work!

If you don't mind, can you take/post more in progress pics?

Thanks again everyone for the encouragement, and the positive comments.

bob w - yes, I used 18 ga, or very close to it.....046" is what I ended up using. I'm planning to do a little bracing inside the car, around the seats.

Flipper - thanks, and yes I'll try to be a little more diligent with my pics....in fact, I was thinking of starting this thread over, as I've left a lot of progress pictures out.....I was thinking that it would bore everyone. Maybe not?

Thumbs up Nice Idea!

I like that front end mount.
I may use that design on my next car if it is OK with you.
I am using an econoline axle and that will work perfectly for me.

Thanks Rex and Tim. I used/modified a couple of "Welder Series" pieces - bat wing mounts, and also the spring perch bracket. I can't make the pieces for what they sell them for. I plan to mount the rad shell in a position to cover up most of the spring and perch.

I hope the front end works ok, as I hope to use this car on a regular basis.
