No... The body will be channeled slightly, but not enough to call it channeled.

more welding today. I got the passenger side rail welded up. The rear kickup isn't cmpletely welded because it needs to get boxed in and extended. I also worked on the frame horns. They're starting to look proper, the top piece helps. Then I set it up at "ride hieght". You can't tell from the picture, but the engine sounds pretty sweet. At least I thought the engine noises I was hearing sounded pretty sweet, my wife thought I sounded like an idiot... not the first time.

Default Starting to look like a frame

It's finally starting to look like a frame. I spent all weekend grinding, welding, cutting and lots of measuring. It doesn't look like I accomplished much, but there's a lot of work in there. The X member kit I bought was a little to long between the firewall and rear kickup so it had to be shortened 3". This of course took a lot of time. Only the top of the X member is in, and only tacked at that. The bottoms should go pretty fast.
