Coming along great chris :thumbs: cant wait to see it all together. I have one question though. Since you dropped your trans into the frame, are you going to be running straight gears to eliminate your top shaft? And are you running a drop box in front of your trans?

Very nice. Im thinking about getting a rack and pinion steering like what you have. Also want to get a drop box in the future but not sure if itll hold the torque or not

Thank you. I work for a hi end race car shop. we specialize In vintage race cars like Ferrari , Porsche, lola chevron. Parts we can get any more I have to make. its a great place to work. Jay Geils started the place working on his cars and then some friends. He sold it about 13 years ago. And its getting bigger every year. I also have my own machine, and fab shop at home. I have more fun building tractors then working on the cars. Thank you guys for the nice comments. And thank you again for moving this post.
