Sweet fabrication!

I really like how you inverted the R&P. I hope you don't mind if I adapt that idea to my project.

The spline is specific to a Chrysler application. The ones I have were made by borgeson but sold through SO-CAL speed shop. I took my box in and stabbed it in the display until I found the right ones. Sorry I don't have a part number for you.

Thanks for the reply - I will have to drag the box in and see if So-Cal has what I need.

Not at all in fact I have the patterns I could email if you are interest in having them water jetted like I did. The design incorporates a mounting rail for a lower splash pan as well.
PM if interested.

I feel like the chassis is near complete, now on to the body work. Tried to pull most of the heavy dents, then some filler and skim coat to finish. Making some real progress

the last owner did a butcher job on most of the body regrettably. this lower panel is a good example of the care that was taken during the prior resto. I decided to replace the panel outright vs trying to re-repair this panel.


I found a roll panel from a 1967 chevy truck fit fairly close in size and shape...upside down. the panel had too much bow so I had to cut it and work in halves. cut out my new frame rails to leave a space to put my bumper at some point, and rolled a bead into the upper portion to match the existing look.



[/url]
the final panel will have some trim panels around the frame rail to clean that area up. I didn't run the bead all the way across so it will look well different then the original sheet metal but clean and straight I hope." />

That's looking real good! I ran into something like that on the front roll pan, prior work had it flat.. did the 2 piece thing to get some the curve and lines back.

This is how the trim pieces ended up. rolled them to the same radius and used some aluminum 1/8 rivets to finish it up.
