I just had my frame welded up and getting ready for the build.Ordered a rear coil over kit from Speedway and a front axle kit from the Old Car Center in langley BC. Got a 3 and a half kick in the front and a Seven and a half keep in the rear. Would like to have a rolling chassis by Christmas.
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.
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.
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?
