Re: 1956 Chevy Pro-Street Build

I just have to say that God blesses us all with people in our travels and lives that come along and just do good things... it's amazing and very humbling at the same time when the good nature of people comes out towards others - perfect strangers, yet somehow God let our paths cross for some reason only he knows.

Many of the people on this board are just that... people that I have now crossed paths with for no other reason than Gods good will. A huge THANK YOU to those that have helped me with this project of mine (you know who you are are) and thanks doesnt go far enough..... Hope we all meet up face to face someday soon.

We all have out separate political beliefs, economic ability whether hig or low to finance our projects and no one is ever judgemental, unkind or unhelpful. This is miraculous all by itself.

Re: 1956 Chevy Pro-Street Build

Truck is really coming together, would have thought like you that the SB springs would do it, good thing you know ahead of time, sure love the stance and the tire wheel combo, classy by mean looking at the same time.

MM - Thanks for checkin in - Yes thats what I thought too at 1700-1800 lbs on just the front but QA-1 said nope! --- They do them all the time in cars trucks vans, everything with a BBC needs 550+ amazing.

I did get mine changed out today and they sit perfect now, I have the coil-over set at about 2" off the bottom of the shock to start with. I have a brand new set of SBC springs for sale for a GEN1/GEN2 Camaro front end. Summit wont take them back now that it has been 2 years.

Door panels are done - came out decent, they will have power window boxes over the front circle and the second circle has a plug welded into it to make it flush and will have a 19mm pushbutton for the door popper.

Thinking of putting a black arm rest/grab handle on them too ??? what do you guys think? Kind of plain as is....




Got the dash holes all cut out for gauges, switches, idiot lights, and everything going in it so I can wrap the dash in leather.... next.



I also got my driveline all installed... ready to roll! almost....

Re: 1956 Chevy Pro-Street Build

Heres a shot of the 350 lb spring setup on the QA-1 coilover shock - this is good for an SBC, or any of the LS motor setups.

Re: 1956 Chevy Pro-Street Build

Truck is looking good. Is it just the picture on the driveline but is the shaft not centered in the loop and rubbing on the right side?
Getting close to driving.
Are you going to make the car show in August, I believe, you were wanting to make?

Making the show is still up in the air - want to be sure all the bugs are worked out. Ill be there with my boat no matter what, but the truck may not make it.

Took a pic before we were all done with it, the 4-link was not all connected and I scratched the paint while getting the driveshaft into that stupid hoop!.... Thanks for pointing that out though Mike!

I concur Dan, you and many others have helped me with your advice and sometimes required pictures. Great bunch of guys on this forum.
