Hello, i am new to hot roding but have experience in restoration. hoping to pick up a few tips on building and modifying existing running gear(chassis, suspension systems, engines,ect,). my goal is have something like an ariel atom2 or twintech v-twin space frame that does'nt look like an off-roader. i would also like to put a '50s int'l metro on a late model chassis.

international metro

Thanks for the welcome Home Brew, the best way for me to describe an early '50s international metro is to ask you to imagine a milk truck and a man in a white shirt and pants with glass bottles walking up to your side door. now i'll bet you are thinking of a DIVCO, since they are really the most recognized milk truck manufacturers of the era. well an int'l metro looks similar. it is sometimes called a snub nose step van. look at this ebay ad for a picture: http://cgi.ebay.com/1948-INTERNATIONAL-METRO-TRUCK-AD_W0QQ itemZ180036119289QQcmdZViewItem or just go to ebay motors, pull up commercial trucks , put number of item in and search. sorry i dont have a camera or digital pictures.
