The rear chassis and suspension are finally taking shape. We are also looking to relocate the fuel cell to in front of the rear end and just below the bed lip.

well the chassis is almost complete. Should be finished early next week.



here is the new/finished transition between the stock frame and the tube frame





The very back of the frame - it should look very nice when you look under the truck all you will see is the rear end.

Okay moving on to the Cab. We made the mock up side bar for the roll cage. It's the exact same curve as the rear part of the chassis. Were trying to keep the matching themes throught the entire trucks build.

Wow - seats in the truck it's hard to believe. These aren't the actual seats that are going in the truck just and extra set that i have laying around. Which mean's there 4-sale with the door panels for $500.00



Okay moving on to the bed. We actually put the cladding on and it fits. However we are going to remake it fiberglass so i can make it perfect.



Oooh the tailgate. Yep it say's Cheverolet -- Not a big deal just as we were planning on smoothing the gate.

I wish it was me doing the fab work. I've got the idea's but unfortunately I don't have that level of skill welding. I have a theory that if you aren't confident in your welds then make sure you find someone that is.

I'm very good a packaging an idea and building it. I've broken the truck down into 23 stages and I / we have been building it in a sequence. It has made the build of this truck much easier. If anyone would like a copy of the build docs I would be more then happy to e-mail them a copy (( [email protected] )).

I love that car over there. I can't wait to start a mustang. I am hoping that by the time i finish this project they will have the new RePop mustang body or cuda shell ready.
