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



from there it is sand blasted to clean white metal




paper templates were made for future boxing plates




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




now the rest of the templates could be made




once the templates were finished and taped into place. a few measurements were made up front with te moc up of the spindle




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.




a four link is in order for this project




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







then the brackets were welded permanently









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




now the coi; over were taking their place
