Re: Jans 53

So this is what I started with in 2006. Up until this year my time to work on it has been limited. In the meantime I was purchasing the parts I would need.

Hi Jan and welcome.

If you're over in Garage Journal you'll know I mean this in the nicest possible way - YOU SUCK!!!

Man, $100 for an ididit column? Craap, I thought I did good getting one for $350.

I like your project, did you paint the frame with catalyzed automotive paint, rattle cans or maybe brush on enamel like Rustoleum? It looks like a very nice job and I'm always surprised how good the various methods look.

Also, what are your mini tubs from? They're very nice.

Re: Jans 53

Thanks everyone, this project has been a lot of fun for me. I enjoy looking at all your projects, some beautiful trucks being built.

Dan, $350. is a heck of a good price! I couldnt get there with my money fast enough then when I got there he threw in the steering wheel. SWEET!!!
The paint is summits catalyzed chassis paint in satin, as you know we cant get it shipped to cali, fortunately, Im only a couple hr's from the sparks NV werehouse.
The tubs are from Tractor Supply cost $30. each and look to be about a 16g. (You will find them in the trailer section)

Re: Jans 53

So here's more part's that I have accumulated. American Autowire ,NVU Gauges and aeromotive fuel system.
A note on the NVU gauges -Since I was using the mustang sender they calibrated the gauge so that it would read correctly...no charge.

I need to have a driveline made, anyone have any recommendations? Empire? Denny's?

Empire and denny's are both top notch builders and there prices are very close, It's all in the shipping. I went with www.dynotecheng.com shaft all great stuff.
