    Doc, did you fabricate the center crossmember section or is it aftermarket?

    Fabricated it, the rails and fron and rear crossmembers are original.

    Quite often the A front cross member is used on the 32 chassis as it gets the front around 3-4 inches lower and is a simple job.
    I was looking at my real cars chassis front cross member and realised it would be an easy scratchbuild to make one for my 1/8 32 chassis, so I spent some time in the garage measuring the cross member so I can make one in 1/8.
    I have started to draw up some 1/8 scale plans to make this an easier job. Does anyone want a copy of this too?
    If anyone’s interested I could do a set up for the complete chassis. Mine is an original A chassis that has been stepped a little in the rear and has a fabricated cross member but that is all easy to correct in a plan.
    Should I go ahead with this??
    I will (and hopefully in the next day or two) get some good detail pics up of the chassis rather than the general ones already posted.
    Cheers,
    Doc.

    Wow, those are great pics. It's like ordering your research. Thanks for posting those.

    Here is a pic with the body on, it is set back 5 inches and will have a very short pickup bed.


    I have been threatening to get hold of a camera for a while now, hopefully it will happen soon. When it does would anyone like some pics of a 1:1 A Model chassis 32 chassis? I know of a few guys building 32 and should be able to get what ever you need.
    I also have a mate who owns a hotrod chassis engineering shop that’s about 5 min from me, I could drop in on him. Check out the web site at
