Nice truck, Rodder18 ! The stance is great! When I did my 57 I tried to get it as low as I could and still be a daily driver (no airbags) Very similar to yours I think but with a 14" front wheel and tall tire.

I didn't take any pics when I clipped mine but here's a pretty good thread on doing a clip for anyone who's interested. This is the same clip I used on the 57, it fits the TF frame a lot better than the 47-54 frame and tucks the wheels in a bit.

Autobuff, if you decide to go with a camaro clip and you want to have the truck sit low, try to do the graft so the clip frame is higher than the truck frame. This is better than dropped spindles which make your crossmember and engine sit too low. Hope this helps.
