    Nice work. Looks good.

    Questions. I'm getting ready to paint some panels soon. I'm going to use SPI epoxy also. How did it spray for you? Did you use a 1.4 tip? Gun brand? I'm also curious about your paint booth set up.

    That's the kind of pic that would be tempting to take the file to a repro place and have a poster made........

    Thanks guys for the kind words! It's very rewarding to finally have the frame completely done, and ready for the body.
    Now to finish the body! which I hope to have done by summers end, and paint in the fall.

    That chassis is looking very pretty. From experience , I know it takes heaps of work to get to that stage.
    Well done!

    GeorgiaDad: I'm using a cheap Vapor paint gun from Northern Tool with a 1.8 tip, and it works great! Here's a link:

    Vaper HVLP Spray Gun Set with Plastic Cup — 1.8mm, Model# 19018 | Paint Spray Guns| Northern Tool + Equipment

    Look at page 20 for my shop setup. I just staple cheap plastic sheeting to the ceiling to cover my tools. Wish I had
    more room, but I get by. Love the SPI epoxy! Go to their web site, and click on the activity stream for some great
    tips on the message board.

    Mike: I think I'm booked up in February! LOL

    Jerry:
    I'm using Pete and Jakes Coil Overs with 250 # coils. There is no brand name on them, most likely Aldens
    I would guess. I'm running them tipped at 25 deg. , have optional 20 deg mount with a different height
    setting. They have adjustable valving, I set them in the middle at #6 to start with.

    Here's the poor mans version of a Rotisserie! The idea was sparked by some
    odd creations I have seen on the net. Here's my version.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    This is the simple jig I made up to roll the body around on, and will use while the
    body work is done. It bolts to 4 body mounts helping to keep the body from twisting.
    I drilled, and bolted a couple 2x4's to it with 3/8" bolts. Just kind of winging it, and
    figuring it out as I go.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I picked up a couple 4'x4' pieces of 3/4" plywood from Manards, shaped them, and
    bolted them to the 2x4's. I added some stiffners between them to keep them ridgid.

    Here's a view of the rear mount. I ran out of square tube or I would have welded
    extensions to the body jig, and mounted the wood to the back of the body
    instead of the middle. It was the weekend, and the steel supplier was closed, and
    I was on a roll so I forged on.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    It worked like a charm! My two sons helped. One lifted, the other caught it, and set
    it down. Was much easier than I anticipated, could have used 1/2" plywood, was
    over built like I do everything. The balance point worked out great.

    Very nice! I might steal your idea if I don't actually build a rotisserie for the 40.
