    See the green tint to my skin...that's envy! Very nice! Rip it down to the frame, and build it from the ground up...maybe one day I'll get the chance to do the same. Betcha you're stoked. Junior.

          Looks like s going to be a neat ride.

          What did you use for the front suspension conversion? Fatman, etc.?

          Please post how it handles when you get the body on, I'm interested.

            Bob,
            I will let you know how it handles. Mustang II IFS frame stub and a FatMan front clip specific for a '54 Stude.

              Beautiful! Very interested in how that clip works! I'd like to do that to my Super Lark clone. Would love any more info and pics you might have. Thanks for sharing!

              What rear suspension and axle are you using?

                          I see you have a stepped diameter driveshaft to help clear the tight tunnel. Was it made up new or is it from some other vehicle?

                            Very nicely done, I love your attention to detail. I am considering a Fatman front end for my 54 Conestoga. I understand they make them so sheetmetal pretty much bolts in place. Would be great to see pictures posted on someplace like Photobucket or Flickr.com.

                            I sent you a private message, look forward to hearing back from you
