the frame was stripped down to it's bare self..

69 viper stepside 69_v1052

from there it is sand blasted to clean white metal

69 viper stepside 69_v1053
69 viper stepside 69_v1054

paper templates were made for future boxing plates

69 viper stepside 69_v1055
69 viper stepside 69_v1056

6 inches needed to be removed from the length so now was the time to do it

69 viper stepside 69_v1057
69 viper stepside 69_v1058

now the rest of the templates could be made
69 viper stepside 69_v1059
69 viper stepside 69_v1060
69 viper stepside 69_v1061
69 viper stepside 69_v1062
once the templates were finished and taped into place. a few measurements were made up front with te moc up of the spindle
69 viper stepside 69_v1063
69 viper stepside 69_v1064
69 viper stepside 69_v1065

it was realized through measuring that a new cradle must be used

at this point the decision was made to move on to the rear.

69 viper stepside 69_v1066
69 viper stepside 69_v1067
69 viper stepside 69_v1068
a four link is in order for this project

69 viper stepside 69_v1069
69 viper stepside 69_v1070

brackets for this link system will be tack welded for a trial fit

69 viper stepside 69_v1071
69 viper stepside 69_v1072
69 viper stepside 69_v1073
69 viper stepside 69_v1074
69 viper stepside 69_v1075

then the brackets were welded permanently

69 viper stepside 69_v1076
69 viper stepside 69_v1077
69 viper stepside 69_v1078
69 viper stepside 69_v1082
69 viper stepside 69_v1085
69 viper stepside 69_v1086
69 viper stepside 69_v1087

now came the istallation of a watts link. this will help keep things centered and stable

69 viper stepside 69_v1088
69 viper stepside 69_v1089

now the coi; over were taking their place

69 viper stepside 69_v1090
69 viper stepside 69_v1091
69 viper stepside 69_v1092
69 viper stepside 69_v1093
