11-07-2006 10:52 PM Homemade Spreader Bar
I finished plating the frame after I trimmed the bottom of it and decided to change my spreader bar from a straight to a angled one. just sliced the pipe at 11 degrees and welded them together and sanded it up. I'll fix it up a little later but did my normal three hours a weeknight and have to do more tomorrow. Getting ready to enter it in the WORLD OF WHEELS here in Calgary in Feb as a unfinished project in our club display.

Put my box on to check the wheel base it appears to be alright, I am 106.5 inches long, I'll have bigger tires on later., Might channel the box on the frame but I have to see when I mount the front end how low it is.

11-04-2006 11:05 PM Trimming the tubes
Wasn't satisfied with my front on the frame so I decide to change it a bit, slopped the cut a bit more and I think it looks better. The first picture is the first time I did it, the last picture is it cut again today.

11-04-2006 10:56 PM Putting in the Rearend
Just set up my diff with a kit from SPEEDWAY. The brackets come top and bottom and a set of coils. Simpler than heck and doesn't even look that bad. Just tacking everything up going to make a set of ladder bars and brackets tomorrow. Waiting on most of the parts to finish the bars and the front, they should arrive this week.

10-29-2006 09:31 PM Box Work
Started on getting my box straightened out in order to figure out the wheelbase, Metal here in Canada didn't seem to like sitting around for 85 years. seem to be welding constantly between MIG and TIG. Put a new back in the box and now all I have to do is shorten it. and I'll be ready.
