Re: My 56 Handyman build

Well my body man has had medical issues that have prevented him from working on the body since January. Well he has been felling better lately for a couple of hours a day and started to weld up some of small stuff today.

I'm glad you are on the road to getting well again my friend.

Re: My 56 Handyman build

Had a little fight with the alt. & power steering pump brackets. Bought both mounting brackets from the same manufacture with the understanding that they were compatible. NOT. The power steering pump filler ended up jammed tight to the bottom of the alt. bracket.
Then I remembered that a guy I know makes specialized parts for hot rods. Gave him a call and explained my problem, sent him some pictures with measurements and he made a bracket that drops the pump down so I can remove the cap. Thanks Chuck.

Had a little misalignment on the body mounts.

Also a picture of the bottom of the tool box and the gas tank mounts.

Your timing is great.
