I purchased the TCI four bar set up. But after looking at it I realized I could not fit the tire I wanted. So the front crossmember (transmission) will be TCI's If you are talking about the crossmember for the rear I will use TCI's four bar but I will have to modify it. Have not gotten to that point yet, but I will post pics when I do.
I measured (marked) the body with a laser level in several spots before I cut out the frame rails. Also before I weld in the crossmember (4 bar) I will rotate the car to the flat position and take measurements from the floor.
I also have been using a digital level in several spots making sure the body has not flexed during the process.
Also I welded a piece of angle iron ( temporarily) to the body all the way across the tail panel, then welded this angle to the rotisserie mounts.
looking good. I ended up doing the same thing, except I removed all the interior sheet metal. The rails are nice quality and a lot better than the stock ones. Right now I am getting a fabricated 9" built from a local chassis guy.
Constipated People Don't Give A crap.
I havent decided whether or not to cut out the trunk floor. The 325s I'm using require mods to the TCI 4 link too. Do I build rails off the existing front 4 bar mount or toss the whole thing and just do a regular back half....either way I want to have it done by spring.
Sorry to hear about the family, some work on the Ol' Chevy II should take your mind off things
No fair doing that on a rotisserie! You are supposed to be on your back getting crap in your eyes and having the blood run out of your arms....
Really, looking good. Looks like your lower sheet metal is in good shape, gotta make it easier. Keep it up and us up to date.
