                  Thanks. I wish I could take credit for it but it's my son's buddy who is a great fabricator, that's why we're using him... a man has got to know his limitations!

                    nice work - I didn't go with the M2 front end because I don't think its strong enough for the 455 Buick, th400 and turbos of mine but looking at yours makes me think I went to a lot of extra work for nothing.
                    Doing it all wrong since 1966

                      Ya there are a lot of cheap quality M2 kits on the market but I got this one from JW Rod Garage and as you can see they are beefy and they do put together a quality product.

                      Well at least the route you took, you know what you got! I don't think I could have undertaken the work you put into yours.

                          Looks like the 5 gallon air tanks will fit nicely under the body ... one on each side...
