only difference in real life though is that its not going to curve as much on the bottum, that would make seats really complicated. myabe though, i think it adds character

gas tank will be in back some place, i'll either attach it to back of the tub or just make some brackets to put it onto the frame.

ok i just got a really good idea: i can use shackles that bolt into the middle of the frame, and i could put spring hangers on top and bottum of the frame. then i could have it underslung for cruising and lookin cool, then flip my suspension upside down for max traction on the drag strip does this idea make any real world sense?

ok finally got some camera action here...




i found a ferio front end, complete with breaks and rack and pinion. less complicated that ttb i decided. i might try to modify the sway bar tower to try and make it look nicer. it was at the end of a long day when i cut the channels into the body, so i measured the inside to where the outside should be so it does not quite fit. i will have to fix that later. tell me what you think...
