Well some of you wanted to see this so Im starting a build thread. Right now the car is running and driving and will remain that way until the new chassis build, at which time I will swap the body to the new running gear. I have spent the past 2 years collecting all the new parts i need so now its time to get down and dirty and start the build.
Here is some shots of the car when I first got it.
And shorty there after a quick sand blast and prime...
I am going to run a flathead V8 and it took several blocks to find one that was usable. I bought 3 complete engines and tore them down and found some cracks in not so good areas.... Well at least I have some dummy blocks for mock up.
Today i drug out a frame I purchased and started sand blasting it. I will be boxing in the frame and have started squaring it up. These frames are like a wet noodle and twist all over the place. I spent 4 hours clamping, twisting, measuring tring to get the frame square for welding on the boxing plates. UGG what a pita!!
More to come, its beer time now
