Post frame builder referrals?

Hello
I sam building a 35 ford pickup. It's a fiberglass reproduction with a 15 inch stretched cab. Since I am building it from scratch I need to find a frame builder.

Can anyone please give me some referrals to good frame builders. I am looking for a rolling chasis. IFS is a must. Although cost is very important, it comes in second to quality and safety.

Any information anyone can provide would be appreciated. I am in MInnesota, so the closer to home the better. Shipping is always an option.
thanks
Jon

Bob at proggressive would be my first call. http://www.progressiveautomotive.com/ 740-862-4696 When i dont have time to build one for a customer i have Bob do it. He builds some good stuff and is very easy to talk to. His motto is there are NO stupid questions. he is in Ohio so it is not to bad.

You should also check out Art Morrisson I've used their complete chassis and suspention setups and everything was exactly like it was suppose to be. no matter who you buy from get every thing from one supplier(Chassis,suspention and steering etc.)to insure that everything fits to gether properly and if there is a problem you only have to deal with one company otherwise each could be blameing the other for something that does not fit.
