13 hours in and still metal finishing.... It's taking an hour a leaf on the springs but moving along..They will be smooth as glass when finished...WTF I'll probably end up wraping them in cloth tape(old roundy rounder trick) and will never be seen, but at least I will know they look tit's! NUF said back to grinding!

I just gave a short shaft and a long shaft to a buddy. The shorty was only good for the tail shaft and housing. It was full of water when it was given to me.
I do know of another short shaft, but he wants $100.00 for it condition unknown. Rolling Eyes

ok after spending yesterday making a jig and tacking it up to the rear with the spring perches attached..I did the almost impossible task, taking a model a spring from at rest 38"'s and streached it to 46" eye to eye with out the aid of a spreader bar..(this secret will be given at the next secret meeting of the troll's under the bridge)by myself..Got everything set and true tacked and mounted and I totaly hate the look.. I'm torn do I Z the frame another 8" or do I spend the same amount of time and make behing rear spring mounts...Anyway I spent the afternoon at Wade's Hot Rod Shop, and Shaw Pin Striping and Vintage Sprint Car Shop open house and left with a new outlook on this. These guys are some true craftsmen, there was probably 60 to 100 cars coming and going at any given moment(Lot's of Magazine featured cars) and even some of the CINCY STREET RODDER'S Showed up yhea!.. I would have let everybody in on this but I did'nt even know about it till I pulled in.. I talked to Josh a few times this week and he told me to come up and grab a burger and a pop so I could pay him for some tire's but never mentioned a word of the open house...Any who it was a good time oh and one more thing "I FREAKING HATE MOCK UP STAGE"..(kidding I love it, it makes me furious at moments but when it all falls into place its beautiful also one set of hands only goes so far)....If I ever get the motivation I will post some pic's, been a long (BEEP) day already, I'm beat and it's MILLER TIME!

Sounds like your well on your way to a fantastic build. Way to go. Great work so far. Stick to your plan and it'll pay great dividends. It look to have a wonderful start. It looks marvelous. I just don't know what else to say!
