New scratch build project going on

I have gathered enough parts to start and so now I am. I have started on the frame but haven't had time to take pics. I used 2x4 beams and some front frame horns from american stamping company. They were not expensive even with shipping and saved me time on making my own(maybe next time!). I will also be adding a x member of sorts that I have designed but have left out that part in the journal until I get there so that i can document real world measurements. I am open to comments and advice as long as they are constructive please. That having been said, what do ya think?

Thanks CBoy. I enjoyed reading your builds as well as NewInteriors and and will be using the same skin on frame method, but going for a more traditional body shape. Hopefully the last two years scraping together parts and measuring everything under the sun won't be in vain.
