    Well now that I've spent 10 minutes trying to post pictures once again and they still do not work after resizing them. We're not much better off than we were before

      We're working on increasing the file size for pictures right now. Hopefully we will have it fixed right away.

        Thank You for letting us know about this. I understand your frustration, However this is a step in the right direction as we are now running the latest version of the forum software which will allow a lot less headaches in the long run. Obviously with this new change we are still experiencing some minor bugs that need to be tweaked from upgrading. We really appreciate your Tenure on Killbillet and i promise you once the kinks get worked out , it will be a more enjoyable experience for everyone.

              Here are the pictures! We started with a stock Model A frame that I took completely apart and boxed in from front to back. I've been built new cross members and added duel leaf springs in the front for more stability. We are using a 289 out of a car that I owned in high school that I bought back which is another thread I will start soon. We got a screaming deal on a tunnel ram with matching Holley carbs oh, we had to step in the firewall back 5in to make everything fit in the stock configuration. Built a set of ladder bars to bolt up to the 9 in that we bought a couple years ago at Portland Swap Meet. Body has been cleaned thoroughly inside and out and is ready for its preserving clear coat. We have minor wood repair to do in the roof but that is it. Now that you guys are caught up stay tuned for more

                            My dad and I spent a little bit of time tonight banging our heads against the wall while trying to work on the gasser. We got a complete 9-inch that we were going to steal the third member and the breaks out of for our axle with the brackets on it for the four link after opening the rear ends we discovered it had a posi spool we purchased for the budget build was not going to work. We also learned real quick that it had 308 gears in it. Not ideal for a race car LOL unless we already purchased it and so we are going to use it for now. Once we went to try and put the brakes on we realize we had a brain fart and rear axle has new shops in it that are a 5 on 4 and 3/4 bolt pattern not 5 on 5 and 1/2 so the drum stuff off of the 9-inch will not fit without some work. I'm not sure what our plan is with that I'm almost thinking about trying to build our own disc brake conversion kit for the back. We then set the body back on the chassis and I went to put the steering column in it so I can start building headers Panda quickly realized that my motor mount was in the way on the driver side. After some Choice words I started trimming on it and now I do not have much motor mount left. I guess I did not have the motor mount built when we test fitted the steering column and box. We got the steering column fitting when we originally put the motor in there and it was supported by two rods in the front. I am now going to redesign my motor mount on the driver side and bring it up from underneath. I am someone who likes to have things symmetrical for no apparent reason so it is driving me nuts that I'm going to have to come out from one side to the other. I will get over it but I'm not happy about it. I did get the rest of the frame weld it up and got brake lines ran down the side of the frame I am still waiting for a couple pieces so I can run them across the front To Each corner of the front axle

                              Getting stuff done. Headers are started, seat is in, column is figured out, brake and clutch pedals are in, brake lines are ran and just need bleed. Also dropped rhw drive line off to a buddy to be shortened.

                              It should be presentable for the little show this weekend
