Thanks guys for the ata boys.

Got side tracked for a few days helping a buddy straighten out bump steer --- align --- scale --- and make up some wheelie bars for his new all fiberglass tube frame truck. Interesting project --- 5.9 Cummins with Pro Charger/Turbo compounding. His old car was a 5.9 altered w/Twin Turbos that ran a best ET in the 8.40's. --- Q

That is one sick build, your killing me. I had a 63 Mercury Meteor 2 door post for 12yrs that I backyard restored starting at the age of 21. It was built on the 62-64 Fairlane chassis. I'm a sucker for the 62-64 "post" cars.

One of the things I like about this era body styling is the distinctive shape and detail. You could identify make and model from a couple blocks away. Not like today where so many of the cars all look alike. Heck I can't even tell the Foreign cars from the Domestic car any more. Then of course how much of your new Ford economy car is Mazda ???? ---Q

Rear drive shaft loop.



Receiver sleeves for removable drive shaft loop.



4130 Chrome moly mounting plate with stand off bushings.



Fire bottle.



Top bottle brackets, bolts and tabs.



Lower bracket drop in receiver tubes. This setup only requires the 2 top bolts making it quick release for easy removal.

That is some genius. The template and hammering the head piece, I just picked up a new tool for my stuff. Ive been wondering how I could shape metal for a shifter box. Thanks.

I have to post a reply every time you post an update. Makes me want to go out and purchase a new miller tig and hone my skills.

I gotta wonder what type of adhesive they use to glue the driveshaft. I've never heard of such a thing.

Derek.

Gydyup;
You may want to pull up Flow Forming part 1 and 2 on you tube video. It gives more ideas of what can be done. It is not necessary to use a rivet gun its just faster than a hammer and forming tool.

Derek;
About the welding you can do it. Its just -- practice -- practice --- practice.

The Mark Williams aluminum bonding process is called Accu-Bond bond and I believe it is a patented process. --- Q

The forming tool mentioned above is nothing more than a piece of wood,aluminum or plastic shaped for the job that you hit with the hammer. It allows you to get into the tight areas easier. --- Q

On the ground for the first time. Sure is good to stand back --- look at the car and see that it sets right and all the figuring and all the work came out as planned.







Next we start the tin work. Starting with the cowl and cowl transition to the firewall.
