After installing the new 9" [4.56 gears, Ford trac lok, 31 spline Strange custom axles], the rolling chassis looks almost complete. Next step is to install the brake discs & calipers before plumbing commences. Trans cooler lines, power steering pump & lines will follow before final finishing touches to the chassis are undertaken.

Specs are-
304 stainless steel throughout with pre fabricated bends all cut, welded and flushed as required. Primaries 1.750" running into track style collectors then 2.5" exhaust tubing through to the Jegs staggered silencers [sorry muffler]. Header flanges .375", collector and joint flanges .250". Copper gaskets will be used but still to fabricate when I can locate [on this dumb island] suitable material.
Some polishing still to to around the drivers side header [right hand drive UK] and hangers to fabricate + attach to the rear chassis legs. Then it`s body back on time to fabricate the rear tail pipes.

A few pics of the polished headers and exhaust. Question is, is it really worth all the time and effort to then go and hide it under the shell? then again it`s a Willys coupe sitting on top, so it has to be done!!
