Alright, here's the last set of picture for this phase of the build. The car went home yesterday. It may come back later in the month but I think it is probably going to wait until the economy picks up before coming back for sheetmetal.

Another shot of the completed back half. Rear end is back under it.



Here's a nice comparison of my welding to what was on the car. I put the new shock mounts on the back brace. The old mounts are still sitting on the front of the axle tubes. Now, I don't claim that my beads are the most beautiful on the planet, but whoever welded those front brackets on needs to be slapped...repeatedly! Please excuse the rust; the temp dropped down to 34 degrees and still maintained 90% humidity. Almost five hours of extra work getting all the rust back off everything.



A couple more pics from different angles





23" back tires and no motor give the car the perfect stance...or maybe not.
