Greetings to all...hope to see each of you at the Bash. I have posted some new photos this morning in my gallery. This about the 10th time the car has been apart and together. This is the last one (hopefully).

I have painted chassis, bent and run all brake lines, trans cooler, fuel cell, chrome power booster and master cylinder. fabricated brackets, installed polished headlight stands, run internal wiring for lights.

Today, I am squaring the chassis with string lines, measuring tape, and plumb bobs. I will set kingpin inclination, and reinstall all running gear.

Should be finished with assembly and squaring tonight with motor and trans back in car tomorrow.

My plan is to meet BC next week in Mountain Home for registration of the car at the local office, and have Spirit paint the body.

Car will be at the Bash....see you there. (Car will be for sale-turnkey or rolling). Has stout 350 dual quad (fresh) SBC and 700R4. (3.73 8.8 rearend) Disc brakes on all 4 corners. Best of everything. No need to sell....just like building them. Model A or 32 is next.

Spirit package with chrome package added.

All polished or chrome with stainless used throughout.

Parking brake....8.8 Ford Explorer rearend with disc brakes, however they have an emergency brake drum inside the rotor. I am going to move it to a pinion brake eventually.

Fuel tank is filled by opening the trunk.

On the 27, the battery box is under the seat on the passenger side. It is built in. That is what I am using.
