    alright so this is my official chevelle topic/ I am happy to announce that the frame is done and the rear end is in but it still bare this weekend I will start putting the rear end together I also have a set of baer 12 rear brakes coming in and customs moser axles.
    things I have done.

    I modified the frame and mini tubed it 2" inboard for wider wheels and tires.
    I added bracing to the frame
    Frame was powdercoated gloss black.

    Rear end
    was also cut down 2" and powdercoated with summit rear end griddle. and there is a lot of parts I have had sitting around for a long while the the rear trailing arms well enjoy!!

    before!!

    That looks great Ranth!
    shit you know how many wire wheels and flap disks I've gone through on my fastback!
    They sure are nice to use though!


    For all you Unibody - mustang guys, this is called a "Frame" haha.


    What else are you doing to the car?

    well this car is being made for pro touring. I am running a t-56 6 speed manual with hydrualic clutch with scatter shield. the motor will be a small block chevy stroked out to a 395 with 6 inch rods at 9.45 compression then it will have a fuel injection system with a centrifical blower attached then for the wheels and tires will have 17X11 with 335 in the rear and 17X9.5 with 275's up front so that what my plans are but you will see soon.
