We used to buy the material from mcmaster carr. Still pretty expensive though.

No "club" stickers for me.

Electrical relay/fuse/connection center. I think it will clean up the firewall and engine bay up a lot so we'll see.

On the plus side, there's about a week left until teardown for paint. I need to get a couple last minute parts ordered before I can finish everything off completely. Its highly unlikely but it might just be wheelable before the snow flies..... Again.

That depends on what set of panels you want to tear up...

If it works out like I want, I'll have 2 or 3 sets... And one of those will need to stay in good shape and away from you!

It looks that way right there but I have lots of stuff removed for easier access. I guess it's time to get some close ups of all the time consuming stuff. The only thing that is really left to do is some tubes in the front end to stiffen up the structure there and the two sides of the firewall. Then it's strip, prep and weld.... After that, plumbing and wiring.

Thanks! The chassis is 50" and the axles are 64/62" making the overall width around 79". It is a LOT smaller than it looks. My goal was to make the 37's look like 40's.

Currently, yes. All the remaining brackets are made and ready to be welded on when it gets torn down.

Nice work, looks very stable and I'd bet your 37's measure taller than my 38's
