    Hi Donald,
    I saw your post and pictures on the vette front clip THANK YOU!
    I recently purchased a 55' F-100. The P.O. installed a Volare front clip, I have dismantled the truck and found the work is just horrible. No boxing or fish plates, frame and welds broken, guys lucky he didn't wreck it!
    Today I picked up an 85 Vette, 450 bucks with a complete front end. Can you tell me how to determine were to place the cross-member for ride height, also did you box the frame then weld in the cross member, looks like you did so I was trying to figure out how you determined were to put the cut outs for the tie rod ends and the holes for the sway bar. Figured I'd just wing it but if you have any dimensions.... Well that would be great.

    Thanks again for posting those pictures, really gives me some confidence... If you got more I would be very appreciative.

    Hi Donald, looking thru this ole thread and noticed your gauges. Streamline? Have they worked well? I have a set I bought to redo the panel in my 53 with. Just haven't gotten around to it yet. Joe

    Saw you post under SuperNationals thread, are you looking for a DSDoor for a 56? What is the going price for those?
    There is a salvage yard east of Junction City Kansas that has one and I think it is in pretty good shape but they wanted $275 for it the last time I checked. You know "just looking" and actually buying makes one a lot more critical of condition but I could check it out they next time I'm out that way if you really need one. I don't have any immediate plans but do have a brother out by Woodbury so may eventually be able to deliver if you aren't in any hurry.

    Donald! Hope you are well, haven't seen you online for a while. I have a chance to buy an 86 Crown Vic that runs and drives and is currently tagged. My question for you and I hope you are the guy, is whether or not this is a front steer clip as I think your truck is also a front steer. I haven't done a front steer clip and am looking for someone who has or that has some good pics. Let me know,

    Hello Donald. I was enjoying the pics of Ole Blue and was wondering about the color on the grille. Is it the original Sungate Ivory? I've been thinking about what to do with my '54 grille. The truck is going to be some shade of dark blue and, after studying Ole Blue, I think that color on the grille would make it "pop". it Sungate Ivory or some other color? Thanks for a reply. Jon

    I'm located in Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada. I'll probably just source a good 8.8 from an Explorer, that'll have to wait till next spring. I've blown my budget and my kids hockey is starting soon, that'll keep us, and our wallet busy.

    Hello Donald, I have a 56f100 and just stumbled across a cherry 88 Lincoln Town Car. I was wondering if I could use the differential In the 56. It would be nice to be able to use the complete drive line, not to mention all the other bells and whistles from the donor. Thanks - Grant
