      I've always wanted to run a tube axle front end on a Deuce build. I've taken the tube axle from the T kit, narrowed and dropped it. For strength, I used styrene Tube Axel rod in the center. Suspension will be a set of Dan's coilovers and fourbar with no leaf spring. More to follow.

    Agreed on that point. Looks great.

    Made some progress on my tube axle today. When finished, it will be set up with coilovers (Dan's are shown) rather than a leaf spring. Next up are batwings for the fourbar and brackets for the shocks, all for use on a Deuce. I made this from a narrowed and dropped axle from the T kit.

    I've also included a photo of a Flowmaster style muffler that I'm working on.
