Or I should say field find, Just recently was back home in Saskatchewan and been watching this farmyard for the last thirty years and decided it was time to stop and see if I could check it out. Some interesting stuff, and old panel a couple of t's old Chevy's a bit of everything actually.

09-17-2006 11:04 PM Frame Horns
Made my own frame horns, used 4 x 2 tubing and had to decide what to do at the front, was going to copy a set off a Buddy's TCI frame but what the hell, did my own, have a 3 and a half inch kick in the front and a seven in the back, using speedways coil spring kit in the back sort of following along the article in street rodder magazine has a lot of good ideas in it.

09-17-2006 10:58 PM Building A new Frame
Spent the weekend cutting up the frame and tacking it up together. Inserted pieces of steel into the floor and made my own jig , spent a day tacking it up and another day cutting it apart and redoing it again, darn near perfect now just need to get it welded, a pressure welder that works for me will do it this week. I should be mounting the rearend and still haven't got a front axle yet though, a bit undecided but looking for a dropped I beam , haven't made my mind up which one I want to buy yet, any one have any ideas?

just working on figuring the rear kick and tried some options as with a four inch kick and a 8 inch kick, the first picture is the four inch kick on the box the second is the eight inch kick on the box, I'm going to go with the 8 inch kick to keep the cab line and the box on the same elevation.

08-10-2006 11:27 PM Two Topless Side by Side
Two cars without roofs in the same garage. But I bet you looked. Just a joke in the title, but i'm setting up my truck to be able to trailer my other car for trips back home to our cabin which is over 1000 k's away. Should look pretty neat pulling my bucket behind.
