    "Quick & Dirty" '71 SS

    The rear is definitely squatting.. I had to jack up the rear axle AND put a couple hundred pounds in the trunk just to get the rear shocks to bolt up. No movement when trying to jounce the rearend.. going to need to run shock extensions for sure. This is the PTFB comp kit w/ Viking double adj...

    DSE frame connector install I wanted to powdercoat the front subframe, as well as keep it removable.. so I modified the DSE connectors to allow for a 'bolt in' subframe. I think with 3 5/8" bolts on either side with well over 100 ft/lbs on em it should be just as strong as fully welded...

    Frame Rails

    I did both full rails on my 71 on a rotisserie.. ended up repairing one torque box and replacing the other, as well as making at least a dozen patches for a good portion of the floors and pinch welds where spot welds were cut (and sometimes air chiseled :o) out.. Later on I will also be...

    Frame rails

    Bought mine from this guy ^^ buildnmy73, they're dynacorn repro's, took me over a year to get the job done (usually 1 day a week) had to patch the hell out of the rear floors once I got the old ones off especially in the corners where the torque boxes go.. had to be done though. good luck
