Actually i think you misunderstand me. I am filing mechanics lien on both of the tci installed frame and the black truck. We do this quite often as it is the only way to recoup the title from the state the truck was from.

The original owners are notified of the lean and have an option to pay the amount owed or forget the vehicle. In this case the amount owed will be 10k on each vehicle. Far exceeding the value. I have signed agreements from each original owner to enter a contract of transportation /storage of their vehicles. I've only had one case in the last 10 years where an owner tried to get their car back, but their agreement contract made it impossible for them to recoup.

Simply put there will not be a frame without a matching title. thank you for your concern but I've done this before with a few other pro stock builds. Now back to the build!

Love the panel color man. Very cool. I may be doing a two tone color with the copper in a flat. I want to do a saddle leather interior.

Anyone with a sharp eye notice the headers?

Wow
yep, you must be single as you do a lot of work on your truck in a short period of time...LOL

I know a lot of the guys here will be envious of being able to order in a nice pile of new parts like that. Woohoo, Keep at it

Good luck with it
Bobby

Truth be told (as much of you assumed)... I have a few pics collected. I started this project last summer. My hopes is to be done with my side of things (outside of paint n interior upholstery) by spring.

Time to get on it!

One facing forward one facing rearward, is that for steering purposes or you just had 2 rights?

In order to get the correct spacing front to back i had to cut this big of a section out of my crossmember. Its ok because it was replaced with 1/4 plate.



Very happy with where she is sitting.. Now onto my serp setup to find out how much room front to back i have.

Looks like just a gusset to me. The hole's may be for access to something?

It's just a gusset with a lightening hole cut in, just like any good race car would have.

The bracket on the center of the front crossmember is the motor mount for the 6 cylinder engine.
