Left Friday the 14th, and just got back.

Something followed me home. Can you guess what it is?

Almost ready to produce some product!

This idea to redesign two of our body mounts came to me while talking with dad looking at a customers 55 sedan on the subject of body bushings specifically. We have to grind a few of them so they will fit inside the canisters.
But what if we didn't have too?
What if I could fit it to the frame rail in such a way?
I went to the computer and cooked up these to see if I could make the idea work. From conversation to parts on the table to see if it would work, 2 hours tops and that's because we had other things to do that day as well. Having this capability in house is a dream come true after designing DIY frames for over 5 years now. Look for more redesigns and upgrades coming soon.

Another cool customer car I just got to see recently was up in Kansas on my way back form my recent trip to Wisconsin. Gary's 55 Sedan Delivery has been his for the last 50 years. He used to race her at the drags and won a good deal of money in the classes he ran and he always promised her he'd make it up to her after all the thrashing.

We'll that stated a few years ago when he ordered a Nerd Rods Stage 3+ chassis and got in line with Randy and his shop Old 40 Bodyworks, the expert TriFive only restoration shop near him in Kansas. The end results speak for themselves. And Randy asked me to come back after he's done, this car isn't even sanded and buffed yet. This is right out of the spray gun for Randy. Hit the link for lost of build photos as we from the assembly of the chassis and body work.

That will probably happen as well. Just seeing if anyone is chopping at the bit right this moment first.
