My Nephews hot rod 47 pickup.

I think it's a 47, same cab as a 40 I guess but it has parallel springs. It has a Nailhead in it. Anyway, it is channeled (did a how to article here on hotrodders a few years ago) and now he has Zed the frame in front and in back of the cab. I wish I would have been there when they did it, sounded pretty interesting how he pulled it off, would have been a great "Basics". They never actually cut the frame in half! He pie cut the rear cut, but NOT cutting all the way thru the bottom. Pulled the frame up, bending the top portion of the frame then welded the portion together where the pie was cut. Then did the same thing on the forward cut, bring the frame back down! Never cutting it in half and in complete control of the frames integrety the whole time, VERY cool. My brother is slicker than snot he comes up with stuff like this all the time.

Hey, I'll right up an article on it anyway with drawings.

It's very easy to pull it off. But remember the frame get's shorter when you do it that way..
