Truck Chassis

I Z’d the front of the chassis yesterday after I ran out of sand sandblasting the roadster chassis- 

I did a simple 45 degree angle/ stack… the Z sits behind the firewall so you wont see it.  I think I’m going to make a flat crossmember in back… altough I’ve been tempted to run an A spring just because I like the way it looks… but I’m afraid it’ll stick up into the box.  I’m thinking about running a 39 front spring in the back like I’m doing on the roadster. 

I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

More MAG Wheels…

I traded for some mags from my pal Rocky…  they’re 15×6 ET II’s.  They’re not exactly easy to find in this size…  not to mention in this nice of shape.  These were produced sometime post 1963.  I wanted them for the model a pickup I’m building.  Just so happens they’re the right bolt pattern I need for that pickup.  I’m going to mount up some hurst slicks on the backs and 5.50 15’s for the fronts… 

here is a pic of the Truck:

Doing some more digging I found that you can buy brand new ET 5 prong caps from the company that took ET over… they call them the ET classic five.  http://www.etwheels.com/et/classic5.html
