    Actually, if anyone comes across a good deal on a set of 16" dirt track tires, let us know. This is one of the big pieces of the puzzle still missing. Damn those things are expensive new...

    So this time around, we're working on the rear of the frame. We got a good deal on some 36 bones for the rear, so we're going to use those. Doing so means converting from spring over to spring behind suspension though, which means some surgery on the frame. I didn't take quite as many pictures this time around either, so there is quite a bit of the process missing.



    Flying by the seat of our pants a little bit here. My original idea was over complicated. After a couple of beers, we decided to just hack off the rear of the frame and rebuild with fresh box tube.



    Getting everything ready for surgery.



    Hacking off the rear of the frame after tacking in a couple of cross braces top and bottom. We did this pretty similar to how we did the front.



    Here are the new stepped frame rail extensions after welding on the bench.

    Jack hamming it up while we were getting the crossmember relocated.



    Mocked up again while we figure out the ride height. I'm figuring ideally, the rear comes down about another 3", and another 1.5" up front. Note, we have a body finally! Brother Geoff from CT picked it up for me a while back and has been storing it at his place. Jack ran up a couple days before our last meeting and hauled it out to my place. Thanks fellas!

    Also note the severely thrashed 37 pickup grille shell I picked up for the project. It was cheap, but it's going to need wizard level metal work to be usable. If I can manage to straighten it out, the plan is to narrow it about 4", and section it a similar amount.
