Figured it was about time for an update since its been awhile. I have gotten quite a bit done, but need to do some fine tuning to get everything perfect.
Finished welding in the wide X-member. Got the welds ground down, and mount for the tranny fitted and bolted in.
Installed a Heidts IFS, might catch some flack for that, but it will sit low, drive good, and with it being a fat fender how it looks arent that important.
Got the engine dropped in and the mounts fitted. Other than than being a 454, there isnt a lot to say.
So heres the frame as it sits right now. Drivetrain is a 454/TH350. Frontend is Heidts, rearend is a chassis engineering leave kit and probably a 9in ford when I can find one. Needs a little fine tuning, paint, and of course a rebuild of the motor and tranny, but for right now looks pretty good.
