got the axle mostly gusseted up last night. still need to add some lower gussets but need to wait until the coils are in place so i can work around them.

good weekend.

got the tub set on the chassis Friday night before it got dark.



woke up sat morn and set the fenders/hood/grille in place to see how she looked.
going to have to do some front fender trimming as expected.



then it was time to sling the motor/trans back in and see if i measured everything decently.


it fits. barely. getting a radiator in is going to be fun. need to get motor/trans mounts mocked in place. then back to the shop for final weld then it can start going together for good. not going to have much time to work on it in the next two weeks. but come 8/6 i should be back on it.

hopefully i can get it a bit lower. frame is about 6" off the ground now, rear of the tub isnt sitting fully down, need to hack the rear floor out for the axle to come up thru it, then the body will sit about 4" lower in the rear.

probably wont ever bag the rear, but those front coils are pretty stiff and swapping bags in later wouldnt be any big deal.

finally getting back to work on this.

loading on the trailer was a PITA with the lack of breakover angle.


got the motor/trans cleaned up a bit. dont think this things been this clean since it left the factory in '81


now that its at the shop its time for motor/trans mounts, brake lines, driveline, gears, steering, fuel.

Tilting the entire trailer nose up can help a lot when loading a low/lowered vehicle. Maybe you could have loaded it without the frontloader? I like your style nonetheless!

2+ year update.

Goddamn I am the worlds slowest builder. worked on it for the first time over the holidays.

brake lines finally got run.


picked up a turbo motor. got it in and running:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0By...cGs&authuser=0

waiting on some fuel lines to show up so i can finish up the hardlines from the cell to the motor, and replace the softlines on the motor.

firewall got patched up and all holes smaller than 3/8" welded shut. leaving the larger ones for now until wiring is done.




3" exhaust got started. rest of the exhaust is on order. hope to finish it up (the exhaust) before next week.
