Here's the body in the showroom waiting on the frame.
Wanda's frame has been boxed and the front and rear crossmembers have been installed. Work is in progress on the tubular center crossmember.
Here's the body placed on the frame. This is necessary to get the exact location for the brake pedal.
The Pete & Jakes drilled I-beam, front suspension and brakes are being installed on the frame.
Jonathan steps back to give it the evil eye.
John is welding up the brackets on the rear end.
The chassis is rolling and ready to set the body on.
Jonathan is preparing the crate motor to be set into the chassis.
With the body on, we can now fit the engine and transmission into the chassis and weld in the motor mounts.
Here's the crate engine being lowered into the frame.
The car is now rolling and the engine and transmission are installed.
The Griffin radiator is fitted to the metal grille shell.
Here's the hood fresh out of the box.
The grille shell and radiator are bolted in and the hood is fitted.
Wanda's car is in the paint shop getting readied for the paint booth.
Without hood sides, we need a way to latch the hood. Here we're fabricating our own latching mechanism using stainless rod ends and rods.
The plan has now changed to include hood sides. Here the guys make a pattern for the passenger side.
