Re: project 62

All I wanna know is where are ya gonna haul stuff at?

j/k Scott. It's coming together nicely.

Keep us updated on pics!!! You know Joe will bug you if you don't!

On a serious note, when you get the frame finished will the front crossmember/LCA's be on the ground aired out? Or are you going to set it up with a "safety factor" just in case? Also diggin that 9". Can't wait to see it in person next summer.

Re: project 62

Thanks Joe, actually about to try and start the ol camaro here in a bit, so if you hear a loud boom at your house you know what it was



Thanks Tim, ya the only hauling in this one after its done will be foldup chairs
CA's are sitting on the ground now might make a oh cheeit safty for it up front but ill get to that when it gets a little closer. Ya it should be lot farther by the time you swing out next summer, now that i said that Joe will hold me to it so i had better huh

Ha, you ain't tellin me nothing. Last winter when I re-installed my engine, one of my hinges decided to tweak and wouldn't shut. I removed them to install new ones and almost got killed by that titanic sized hood. Good times
