I welded a 5" extension to the firewall today. That should give me the interior room I need. Next, I'll probably stick the engine in the frame and determine wheelbase.

You are something else! Great progress so far!

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

The rear frame kick ups are made and tacked in along with the upper spring mounts. I'm using helper coil springs that I got for five bucks at the last swap meet. I know they will be very stiff but I'll need that because only 1 1/2" inches is available in the wheel well for suspension travel. I can adjust the rear frame height 2" in case a larger tire is used or the springs settle. I'll rely on the big slicks with low pressure to provide some tire suspension .

Thank you for all the comments. I really don't work fast, just steady.
