Well I did a little more tonight, I got all the suspension finished up. Just so everyone knows, the whole suspension is fully workable. Every radius rod pivots, front and rear. Jacobs ladder also is workable. I still have a long way to go, but its getting there slowly. :D

Great chassis! Great look!

Gotta question: How did you swing the spindles? Looks like a scratch front axle, which would mean scratch spindles? The last 4 fully scratchbuilt front ends ive done have each their own different spindle. Ive yet to find a method to work easily. If youve got any pics or help, that would be awesome!
