got the bottom of the casket cut to fit the frame and over the transmission .had to tilt the steering box back so it would have the right height at the driver seat. have to add a few more braces for support. hopefully my front tires get here tomorrow., nice that you can track an item and the last place it shows is battlecreek mich. on the 13th.delivery date is the 19th havent lost anything yet. but dam usps keep your records up to date.

I see you already have your rear axle welded on, but I would still rethink that. You are making a very cool car and you are going to want to drive it. I would check with your state laws too, it may need to be sprung to be legal. If driving a car without a rear suspension is anything like riding a motorcycle without one it can be pretty hairy.

It will draw a lot of attention when done and it is out and about. Keep the updates coming.

Looking good so far... My hat's off to you for even thinking of trying to build one.... Your way pass the thinking part,,, YOUR BUILDING IT...

It's just something to think about so I tossed it out there. We don't know every particular fact about your life and world and that is why all the different opinions and tips are so valuable on a site like this. I have asked questions and gotten completely different information that I was thinking of and was enlightened by someone tossing something out.

i know mine wont be like Barris' drag u la as built for the munsters that must have been very hot car to drive with the engine in the same space as the driver. if you go into www.musterkoach .com site and look at the pics of this car during filming of hotrod herman they show some sort of cooling equipment on the front of the car . and barris had one of his guys cut the fan blades to fit that would alter the cooling plus along with the small radiator opening its a wonder it didnt cause a lot of trouble during filming the tv show or the movie cant do everything in one take.....thats why im putting the engine on the outside of the casket. incase of any mishaps like a small gas leak during first start up at the carbs ( things happen) inside the casket and you never get the smell out plus why hide all the chrome parts over heating would be my big concern

Might look good to you, but I'm skeptical.

Where's the pics?
