07-07-2008 02:39 PM remodeling the front rails
the left-side is ready. Flatened it out a bit on top. I've also made extra room for the grill insert between the rails. This way the grill insert sits free from the frame rails. Last picture shows a pair of coil overs I plan to use in the back. Originaly intended for Beetles and buggys but they work as well in the back of my car. Nice detail is that these come at one third of the price you pay for a "normal" set of hot rod coil overs!

07-06-2008 11:21 AM frame rails
I've bend my frame rails inwards so that they sit just beside
the grill insert.I dont like the shape of them so I will reshape them a bit. Not shure yet if I will close the holes at the end of the rails or that I will use these gaps to locate the indicators...

07-04-2008 10:30 AM "Le grille" ?!? what the heck is that?
Quiet a well known frase , among Simpsons-fans
For me this means my grille-insert arrived. Just what I need so I can start bending my front framerails inwards and instal the front-end (once it is finished...)

06-29-2008 02:48 PM four-bar installation
Once the rear axle was cleared of all the rubish, it was time to muck it up under the frame.Once correctly lined I assembled
the four-bars and welded them onto the frame,after some more measuring the shock-mounts where welded on to the rear axle.
I also placed a rear quarterpanel back up the frame,just for fun...
