Pretty bead but it looks like it does not bridge the seam. Looks like you have access to some very nice metal cutting equip...appears to be as nice as any Art Morrison or TCI frame.

I had my buddy weld it as its his every day job. The pieces when put together have a 'crater' or ledge to fill so it grabs on the edges and not just the surface.

Looks like a TIG weld made adding no filler in which case the ledge would have, should have (?) melted into the vertical piece underneath. I can't see the heat affected zone in the vertical piece from the angle of the photo so it's really hard to tell. Definitely less than ideal configuration for a MIG weld.

Looking great! Lots of work, though. I also did a race car themed chassis on my 55. Can't wait to see yours when its done.

Look up " Over Staked Ford chopped top at sema 2015 " by bayonecstoms .They did a column relocate to give more interior floor space .
