    Cap?n, I restore tubs as a job. Clawfoot tubs are fun and I usually do them in my booth.

    While I had a bit of time today I decided to weld up my fix for a cross steer on my Deuce. I used the kit from Speedway but for a top steer the tabs were bent the wrong way. So I ordered two kits, one with just the single hole and the other for steering that has one with two holes.

    I just cut off the tabs on the steering arm and mated it back to back with the other arm. I ground a 45* all Around where I was gong to weld. You can see the photos, it turned out great. And raised a bit is perfect.

    The welds almost looked too god to grind off but I’m going to powder coat them Chrome.

    Got the steering done, well mocked up. Going to get much bigger rods for the linkage.

    Also cut out the rear wells. This is the first cut so don’t freak on how uneven. I want to be able to get a good arc similar to my ‘55.

    Playing with the shrinker to maybe use these or maybe do the steel rod like the ‘55. Will see.

    Also while I was cutting I had a friend over and we decided it was tine to mock up the drivetrain. I lucked out that the mounts were already V8 mounts so it was almost drop-in with the Muncie and the correct Chevy II belhousing. Headers fit great and look really good. The tunnel ram is perfect, so we cut a hole in the hood. Couldn’t use te stacks as they are too large diameter to allow the hood to open without more major surgery sonI got some small air cleaners. Looks pretty good. Will make flanges to attach the scoop. Most ofthe inner structure was left intact.

    Those uneven cuts don't worry me Mike. I know your skill level. Im sure you will make it look pretty. Love the wheel opening edge you created with the shrinker/stretcher. you

    Love it Mike. I had the same issue with the surgery on the MG air cleaners. That setup looks killer and love the air in the front.
