Thanks for the kind words... I too like Phaetons. Hopefully mine will have a folding top as well.

Default Rear end is mounted... well, tacked in

Made a little progress. The rear end is tacked into place. A lot of planning was done to get to this point. Last weekend I trimmed some wood out of the body so I could get it on the frame, then I spent countless hours moving the rearend and frame around to get the right position. This weekend I got the center section mount built. It's only tacked together for now. The yellow plates on the center mount are there to hold the mocked up bushings together, a short piece of emt, two fender washers and some plastic washer for compression. I won't put the actual bushings in until all the welding is done. I have a front end coming this week from speedway, 4" dropped i beam, split wish bones, early ford spindles, steering/brake kit, vega steering box and hardware. I'll be modifying the original front cross member, just trying to use a few original frame parts.

Default sitting on 3 tires...

Made some more progress. All the work so far has been getting the chassis done. It's still tacked together, but that should change soon. I got a complete front end from Speedway and a cross member from Welders Series. I didn't have time to get both front spindles installed so for now it's a 3 wheeler. There's still jack stands under the rear of the frame because I don't have the pinion supports for the rear end built yet. Because the bushings aren't in the center section mount the rear housing rotates a little under it's own weight. The body has been off and on a few times but no pictures, soon though.

Default some lights I got

Last weekend I was helping a friend clean out his barn and I scored some cool lenses. There are two sizes in two colors, red and amber. These lights were wrapped in news paper and the year on the paper is 1943. These are King Bee lights, they're replacement side marker lenses. The cone shaped lenses fit current side marker housings, they measure 2.34" on the small OD and 2.46" for the overall OD. The other lenses are a little bigger at 2.50" for the small OD and 2.72" for the overall OD. These lenses also have King Bee embossed in the glass. Hopefully I can find some housings for the bigger lenses. My buddy has 3 cases of these...

Default More chassis work...

I got some more work done on the chassis. Here are some shots of the rear center section support struts. I've had a lot of sucees notching tube with my drill press and a hole saw. This drill press goes pretty slow, 240 rpm, but I think 150 rpm would be a little better. As long as the tube doesn't come loose it works. I have a little trick for marking the tubing so I can square it up. I use a heavy duty pipe cutter to mark the tubing and I dress it to that line. This line is pretty easy to see even when everything heats up. Since I don't have a lathe or cut off saw this is how I do it. The pipe cutter won't cut through the DOM tubing. I like to make sure everything is clamped tight when I weld, I'm not a fan of filling gaps with weld, if it doesn't fit well I'll usually re-do it.

Default The rearend is in

The rearend is finally in. Most everything is still only tack welded though. I'll weld it all up as soon as I know exactly where the engine and trans will be. It's taken me awhile to get to this point and it sure feels good. I've supported both sides of the center section because only the back side will be getting coil overs. The shock supports are only set in place at the moment. I made a set of struts to hold the A-arms at ride height (what I think ride height will be) so the shock supports will just set there for the time being.
