    pop build up

    Thought i might as well move the pop build up over here,its a joint build between me and my brother in law, we go to all the events together so thought it a good idea to join together and get this pop "minus the wheels"

    we brought it off of one of my dads old mates who never got it finished

    we did,nt know what the quailty of the build was so i got a friend over to take a look, he sugested we get the pop into his garage so he could take a closer look,

    on closer inspection we deciced it was going to need a full rebuild so rebuild it was
    as we have acsess to a lazer cutter we thought we would make use of this in the chassis and get the rear kick up and front rails all lazer cut




    out with the old

    in with the new


    next job was to kick the chassis in at the front to get more length on the a arms and a better turning circle

    front cossmember

    and mount engine and box




    got lots more pics to put up when i get a chance
    cheers lee

    couple more pics
    rear end all set up

    and prop loops

    next up was the a arms


    we then made a start on the stainless exhuast


    notched the chassis for a bit more ground clearance


    all leading to my gift from santa

    and then the bracket for the silencers,look under the rear of the pop you see this


    body back on,just to get an idea how its going to sit

    then moved on to the cage




    then narrowed a mk2 escort steering rack and set up at all the correct geometry and made front shock mounts

    it was then time to get of the jig


    should have a few new udates this weekend
    thanks lee

    quick update

    started bulkhead last weekend.
    swager konked out after the first panel so the rest wernt done.
    not overly fussed as the engine hides most of the back panel and too impatient to wait a week till the swager was fixed

    Rod/custom/drag build profiles:
    Mini | Pop | Porker | Trike | Morris 8

    | 48 chevy coupe | ford f100 | tube chassis,d pop
