First up I roughed in the headers for it, and built a frame.

Have to add the front suspension yet.
Posted Image
How about a starter, and oil pan, and water pump pulleys.
Posted Image
Oil Filter, and transmission.
Posted Image
Firewall, and up on wheels.

This was a ball trying to figure it all out. ;bb;

Finally got the guts to tackle the front suspension on this build. I took a 1/4" piece of tubing, cut it 1/16th" thick, then cut that in half to make the springs. The drop axle is a piece of florists wire. The small wire betweent th frame is for the engine mount.

Next I put on the tires to check the stance.
Posted Image

Then dropped on the body to check clearances.
Posted Image

I may have to tweak the front just a tad lower.

Okay guys here's the latest. If you have a engine you need a rear end, and drive shaft right.

Here's a before (RED), and a after Yellow) showing what the original looks like(Red).

Started thinking maybe I could lower the roof abit.

Posted Image

Finally the stance between the 2.
