The body is looking great Tom, the chassis should be pretty straight forward and soon a roller!
There's still work to do on the body but it is relatively minor compared to what has already been done - mate the body to the floor, replace the A bottom post with a nice gennie, patch panels all around, hang & align the doors, new door skins from beltline down, align/mount/gap the new SAR deck lid. Most of the remaining body work is to patch the driver's door top where it is rusted thru & weak, some small dents here and there, plus fix the roof insert area - the original tack strip is intact but has seen better days.

The stock center crossmember will be used as it works better with the stock floor than the tube center crossmember Rusty tacked in. I just located some stock pedals too. My big ticket item to figure out next is the wheel/tire combo.

The center X is in, 9 in. Ford rear housing narrowed, '36 rear radius rods mounted. Still need to add some bracing for those '36 rods as they are not designed to be ladder bars all by themselves. The stock center will be removed when the engine & trans get installed. 52555129_2138914769485538_5165681261389283328_o.jpg
