      Here's a couple of shots of Dan's IFS mocked up with the chassis. Next is building the back of the chassis and IRS.

      Nice work on those heads guys!!

    This is my dash. Its a Dan's 40 Ford that I've smoothed. Speedo and Tach will be where the stock cluster was and small gauges will be where the speaker grill was. All will be sunk into the dash.

    Gonna go away for a while and build an engine, trans and rearend before I get too far ahead of myself.

    I was rooting through the parts box this morning and came across a very rare George Zurowski deuce chassis. Its a solid and very strong casting Deuce Pickup so I've decided to use it rather than the one from R/M. So far, I've removed the front X member, pinched the rails and added one of Dan's IFS. Because the rails are cast solid, I drilled the front horns and the IFS X member and used pins in addition to glue to attach the X member to the front of the chassis. Once I get the engine and rear suspension sorted out, I'll add tubular X members. I'm still playing with the deuce pickup body but as you can see, it will have a radically raked windshield.

    Here's a mock up of my Celebration project. The Deuce body has been cut behind the ****pit and the rear corners are made from the rear corners of a T body. The back of a T body will be widened and used for the back of this body. I haven't made the pickup bed yet.

    The chassis is a very rare George Zuroski piece to which I've adapted a Dan's IFS. I'll be adding X members and probably an IRS. The windshield and grill shell will be laid back.

    I've started on a Ford Cosworth V8 and am mocking it up for motormounts. This is a rare French built kit.

    I've gotta say that as much as I'm enjoying this build, everytime I look at some of the other builds on this site, including from the Pocher guys, I'm tempted to go all out with lots of scratchbuilt and detail. This is my first venture into radicalism and its tempting me to do an all out build. Even though I'll have something in the contest, I guess I'm still not sure what the end result will be.

    And so it goes........

    Rick, the build really looks great. As far as all the detail and scratchbuilding, go for it. I'm glad all that other stuff has tempted you because it's tempted me way out of my mind. I'm going to throw in as much detail as I can cook up. I hope you do the same. We can all inspire each other to greatness.

    Haven't posted for a while so here's an update on whatever it is I'm trying to acomplish. I keep changing directions and am currently torn between a roadster and a pickup (Don says do both). This is my roadster body. The cowl has been dropped, the body has had a wedge cut taken out of it and the wheel wells have been raised. I still think the front of the body is a bit bulky so may drop the cowl at bit more. I also think the wheel wells need to come up more and be tubbed.
    I've also changed directions on the chassis and have gone IFS and narrowed rear with 4 bar and coilovers.
