    Ah, gotcha, its probably not apparent in the pics but this pic below should make it clearer Jerry, the legs going back from the centre section provide the outside joint bracket, hope that makes sense ?

    Mines the 301444, fairly mild for a driver.

    A dry sunny day forecast for tomorrow so decided to drag the frame out of storage and get it rolling tomorrow, Yes its dark & raining here but couldn't resist drilling out the rivets and removing a small part of the centre section and bolting in the front ladder bar mount, the bolts are button heads reprofiled to resemble rivets and the nut side was spun in the lathe, once tightened down I will fill the heads with weld and fuse weld the nut in place. Looks more in keeping with the rest of the frame.

    Wow what a great day today has been, sunshine all day Got out there bright & early and got the front axle etc in place, I also made a little towing fixture which bolts to the frame to make it easier to get to and from the lockup where its stored.












    Also got the rear axle & spring all mounted, next I will mount the motor & transmission, ran out of light in the end otherwise would of got the rear wheels on

    Managed to squeeze a few hours work in on sunday, mainly assembling the rear spring which feels just about perfect, welding up a few unneeded holes and cutting off the various brackets I don't need, also put a relief in the front crossmember as because the pickups are a bit small for me I want to keep as much of the firewall as possible.

    It's looking very nice and your welding and fab work are top notch!!! How does a rear suspension set up like this ride? I've never had one like this but see many around and am just curious.

    Not so much done last night, but I guess anything is progress I needed a bit of 1" CDS for the tierod but had run out and didn't even have any stainless on the shelf, luckily young Gary Layton popped in with a bit an inch longer than I needed, bunged it in the lathe and trued it up and tapped for early ford tre's, I now have a rolling frame

    Had a nice surprise today as my stake bed pockets arrived from Mackhills, couldn't buy Willys ones but the 39 Chevy ones are 99% correct ad almost the same thing and at $25 a piece a bargain
    Gonna pop in to my mates tomorrow and get some sheet bent up for the pickup bed.

    Hahaha this is all MIG welded Ryan, I havn't picked up my MIG for 2 years so some wasnt pretty although I cleaned it up and made it respectable

    I kinda like transverse springs, they work really well and give a much better ride than coilovers and they are also tuneable.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.
