    Thumbs up Sharp n Shiny Sid..

    Very shiny!!.. Looks great..

    I stuck with the I-beam setup on my 31' Chevy.. But its frame is raised off the beam by air-ride to soften it up.. This I-beam is not stock either.. It's from a 66' Chevy Van and has manual cross steering thanks to a JEEP double knuckle tie-rod and a 71 Nova manual box connected to an S-10 steering wheel with a JEEP Laredo steering shaft (ps: I work at a junkyard)

    Shooting for an old skool look with hidden updates..

    IE: Behind the firewall is a 90-degree brake booster, But on the firewall will be a FAKE 55' Chevy single line master cylinder..

    Looks great sid! The bright work is getting hard on the eyes . One of these days they are going to hold a show to highlight the "other" work we do in our shops.

    Thanks- Frank
    Ken- the color is going to be yellow. debating about flames or not.
    J- the fornt end is from Kugal out of CA. I think it might have Mustang geometry, but is is thier oun design. The upper and lower control arm are investment cast stainless steel, polished.
    Spkrman- 2007 is the 75 anniversary of the '32, so I think that would be a fitting time. I'm not sure the interior will done but the rest of it should be.

    Nice work.
    Making chips is more fun than fixing cars.
