ok been plugging away on the chassis for Bruno. he provided me with prints of all the dimensions he needed and an idea of what he was after. after a little tweaking and some hard work this is where i am at since starting on it sunday.

chassis table all cleaned off and ready to get building



skip ahead a little got the front rails tapered from 4 inch in the rear to 2 inches in the front. front x member tacked in, rails under the cab cut and tacked in place and front suspension half hung.













then put in piece of tube i bent up to go under the engine, per request. and the piece of 2 x 4 tube to support the radiator in the front also per request



in the rear for the kick up i like to use flat plate for the bottom to make it look like a bent rail. i also like to plate the splice on the inside ( internal shear load gusset). so i cut and bent these pieces of 3/16 plate to put on the inside.

here is how i bent them, in my home made press brake tool for my 50 ton press





here are the holes to plug weld the internal plates in the kick up





after getting the rear kick up tacked up, and the vertical sections cut, i then notched the rails on the vertical mill to accept the rear section of the frame. i like to do it this way so it gives me more welding area for a stronger area



the front mount brackets for the rear leaf springs would not work right so i designed some up in auto cad and cut them out on the plasma table . used the original bracket for a template then matched the anlge and distance need to attach to the frame correctly

Hey Bruno,
Are you all giddy inside? I would be if I was getting something like that.
Good things do grow in that Cornfield.

Mike the frame looks great, can't wait to see it on Friday. It was definitely worth the wait. Your ideas on the frame are 100 times better than what I drew.

I-R-POPS when I saw the pictures this morning not only did I feel giddy but I got a chu88y, and at my age that doesn't happen much in the mornings anymore.
