09-17-2006 09:58 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?

08-29-2006 02:47 PM frame kick up
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 10:27 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.

Started taking out the wood in the truck body split right apart, Looks like back in the sixties someone had an idea and used two door skins to fill in the roof. Going to rework them like they were looks kinda neat but I think I'll use something different then chicken wire in the interior.

08-10-2006 10:15 PM Next Project
Finally picked up my next quest, a 1931 Chevy Pickup, Sometimes I think I'm a sucker for punishment but I guess that's what hot rods are about. Building a 350 30 over with a 4-71 supercharger and want to run a T5. Like to pull my other car and numerous other projects in the future. Got over 10,000 k's on my rat rod and I need a bit of comfort sometimes.
