    I'm putting on my mesh tank top and making a scrap run before I head to work today.(afternoon shift)So I can get the cash together for the driveshaft shortening.The driveshaft will need to be shortened because I shortened the frame by 13 inches.And that job is something that I can't do myself plus it's only about $50.00 to get done.

    I also need to lift the engine up once more and notch the cradle to make clearance for the starter.It's just a little tight for my liking.

    This weekend will be the big push to get the body sitting on the frame.Need to make a trans mount and plumb the breaks.Then it should be body mounting and time to wire it up.

    All the chassis work is done as far as I can tell.In the morning I will roll the frame out of the garage and roll the body in.

    IMG_1471.JPG IMG_1470.JPG Pulled in the gas station at lunch and seen a mustang on 31s I was like what the f is that. Turns out it's a freind I haven't talked to in a whiles gambler car. Pics don't do it justice I couldn't stop laughing for 10 mins.

    Have make a shaft to go from the steering coulomb to the steering gear.Looks like I might be able to use one from a Dodge truck with very little alteration.

    The body is on the frame.I'm just trying to figure out a few challenges with the exhaust and steering.
