Finally got the frame rails and suspension mounts finished.

Cross bracing is temporary. Once I decide on an engine/trans, I will either use the original 1939 cross bracing, or design new bracing. I'll likely use the old cross bracing as it is a good design ... and because steel is getting expensive.

Initially I was going to use a Supra/Soarer MK3 rear suspension assembly, but decided against it because of mounting complexity (newer Lexus subframes have a design that is easier to incorporate into traditional frame rails) and it is worth quite a bit. On the market it goes!

Then I was going to use a Ford 8.8, but ended up using a one-owner (Dad bought it new) 84 F150 9". The 8.8 rear disc brakes are a bolt on to the later, big bearing 9" rears.

The F150 9" rear is really wide, and even 1" wider that what the charts show, but works out with high offset wheels like I must use on the front.

Hope everyone enjoys their popcorn over the holiday weekend!
