some shots of the chassis coming together. We started with a pair
of unboxed American Stamping rails. And straightening them up
nicely (and modifing them so the front rails would be pinched), we boxed
them, finishing them up with 80 grit DA. Once they were aligned in
the frame jig and everything square, we started making the front
crossmember. We're going to make a flat front crossmember, so the
car will sit just a little lower than most.
|We built in a 7 degree rake on the crossmember (taking into consideration the rake of the finished car) for proper caster. This will help the car go nice and straight when you let go of the wheel.|
