Thanks Kerry

It's fun but time consuming.They are a 2 step with a merge.
2 1/4-2 3/8-2 1/2. After I tack #2 tube, I'll move over to the drivers side.
I'm sure the steering shaft will be a serious pain and nerve racking.

Yes that steering shaft is a serious pain. #5 and #6 were easy
compared to #7 & #8 :evil: #5 is tacked, I just about got #7 figured out tonight. It's frustrating enough trying to get the tubes clocked correctly.
Then I have to figure out to get the steps the right length without getting the tube too long :!:
After I get #7 tacked I get more pictures up.Thanks for the complements.

Very nice looking work FABMAN. Still have yet to get you pictures of the rack set up. I noticed tubular control arms on the bottom , what are you planning on doing with the 65, road race, drag race, neat cruiser??

Just got in from getting #7 tacked together, wasn't as bad as I thought
it would be :shock: .It ended up being within a 1/2 inch of #5 :D .
I suspect I will not be as happy with #8 tomorrow :evil: .
At any rate here's what #5 & #7 look like together.

FINALLY :!: After getting my butt kick for three days.I got #8 fitted & tacked :D Try as I might,best I could do was get it within 2".Meaning #8
will be the shortest tube on the drivers side.
At least it's behind me now.I have a minor adjustment to do to #1,then I will do #6. It will buy far be the easiest, because it will be a mirror of #
2.
Hear are some picture's.

Nice work fabman!...I know on the two back primaries tubes on each side of my headers are longer than the others...simply could not put them down swept because of room constraints below the mid-plate.

You should be proud! 8)
