Building a tubular dropped axle

Hey everyone,
I'm building a '28 Model A, and I want to drop the hell out of it. I am building it as a promotional tool for my shop. I don't want to modify the frame too much. I want to build rods for a living some day, so buying aftermarket parts and installing them is not in the cards for me. I want people to see what I've built. Not what I've bolted on.

So I need to build a tubular axle that will be dropped 8 or 9 inches. The reason I need so much is because I will be using 20" spoked wheels, so that alone will raise the car a couple of inches.

Anyone know of some tubular axle schematics or anything?

In case anyone is curious, I am putting a '50 flathead V8 in it with an s10 5 speed. I'm hopin to cruise this thing down the highway at speed.

Eli
