Re: '63 c10 drag build

Good looking project. I am interested in how you tied the roll cage into the frame. Can you post some pictures of that detail. I am working on a '56 truck with roll cage and need some ideas. I guess once the cage is welded in, the body is on the frame for good?

Thanks

Well you take a piece of tubing like 1-5/8 and go from the bottom of the main hoop to the frame at a angle I'll try to find pics

Re: '63 c10 drag build

It's a hard one on closing it off or keeping it open. I can't decide on my build either.


Who is doing your tin work? I may need some help with finishing my camaro.

Re: '63 c10 drag build

No I have to cut the front end of my frame off to get it. It comes up like 1.5" short of the window cowl
