Got the rear axle mounts finished up!
It's coming together like I planned.

Some of my friends think the xmember is to beefy, well who cares! I don;t want it to go anywhere

My air bag kit came in yesterday! WHOOT!
It's all Air ride stuff, looks like the quality is good.
Ordered some brackets today, should have the rear completed soon.

07-17-2008 03:16 PM '50 chevy cuttin the windshield
Gave up sand blasting after the compressor died (but I did fix it later)

Used a dremel tool and a silicon carbide grinding stone.
Also had to "massage" the roof a bit for a better fit

Fit;s like a glove, but took a bunch of time

07-07-2008 01:18 PM '50 chevy core support
Got a bunch of stuff done this weekend.
Mounted a large 3 core cross flow rad I picked up at the JY out of a 70's impala, almost brand new :pimpgrin:
Also mocked up the booster and M/C, it should fit.

Welded up some extra holes and a few cracks in the fire wall.

Scrounged around and found the vent windows, looks like I should be able to cut/bend then into shape for the chop

Finished up repairing/cleaning the windshield pinch weld seam.
Built a pressure assist sand blasting bot out of a 5 gal bucket, we'll see how well that works in cutting down the windshield.
