Bruno,

Is your frame tubing 2 x 4? Do you know the wall thickness?

Do you know the OD of the round tubing?

Thanks,
Couper

Question..... and a question about my question. LOL I'll have a bunch of frame & suspension questions. Do I post them here or in the suspension forum?

I'm gona go with a front end like Bruno's....single side by side leaf spring. Is this spring as is supposed to be my lowered ride height and I throw a airbag to bring her up for the road? Or do I loose the leaf spring and go with 2 air bags that will give me a ride height & lowered parked height?

Thanks
Couper

Air bags take the place of springs.

If you want to bag the front, you may come up with something like this.

Geeze Bruno.... I just looked thru your links, you've built a lot of stuff. I see some have the front end out in front of the frame versus the bobber that has the front end back 18" or so. May I ask what the difference is?

Haven't spent much time thinking about the frame and the guy from speedway is dragging his heals. I've been concentrating on finishing her up for primer and a guide coat and got four coats of high build 4CR 2K Epoxy on her last night. Soooo excited to see her in primer. I'll let her sit for a few weeks then start guide coat blocking her.

I'm going to order 2 lengths of 2x4 3/16 and get my frame table cranking

Some shots of her new under ware )

BTW.....this is a color I'm really digging. With my own signage. My last name is Nichols so I was thinking about Nichols Garage with a Buffalo Nickle in the middle of the door. Whatda think?
