Hey Chuck, how much of the body is going to end up being 'glass & how much factory skin? How much do you guys think it will weigh? I'm guessing maybe 2500 to 2800 lbs depending on how much fiberglass vs OEM steel?

Just a quick update. Picked up some back wheels for Chuck's car on the way home from the tech seminar (Thanks Bill for finding them) and we may be making another trip BACK to Indy to look at a "chassis skin" What a Face

Bill says the Chassis will be ready this week and we can pick it up anytime. Chuck was looking into powdercoating the frame and got a reasonable quote so we may do this instead of painting the chassis as was planned (to save money).

More updates soon...

Nick,
Here are some pictures taken of the car on Friday. The steel firewall, floor pans, driveshaft tunnel, and upper cowl panel have all been welded in. The chassis should have all of the tabs and brackets for everything that is needed already welded on. The transmission tunnel will have a small forward firewall that will be removable with Dzus tabs along with the tunnel and the two sides at the firewall. The rear panels for the 4-link will be removable and already have the Dzus tabs. The electronics will have a panel that will Dzus to the forward triangle of the door bars on the passenger side. To simplify things, the doors will bolt back on using the factory hinges and pillars. The tube inserts and tabs have already been installed for the window net.

The next steps will be to get the body cleaned up, the engine and transmission mounted, the front struts installed, and then the rear end narrowed and setup.

When I download the img/ links of these pictures from PhotoBucket, it always clips the right side of the pictures. Full size photos can be seen at https://s254.photobucket.com/albums/hh93/85monte_ss/fabrication/chassis/mustang%20sfi254/

Bill I have the same problem with photbucket ad this site only. If you edit the size to large they will not clip the picture.

By the way it sure looks good.

Since '69 Mustang 'glass front ends have been the aftermarket norm (& most likely what you will have to get), are you guys going to leave a '69 nose as a '69? Or do a little 'glass work to make it look like a '70?

I think Photobucket does have a image size limit. I have tried to upload a big pic there before & their system just won't do it.

Dave,
I am not sure exactly what they are going to do on the front end. Whether Chuck is still going to try and go fiberglass or go with the stock front end. The steel front fenders can still be mounted to the front of the body and the cowl panel can be mounted to them and then a core support/tree could be made for the bolting the fenders too. I have already made the slide brackets on the front frame, so that it can be done either way. But before doing any of that would require having the doors on the body and also the hood.

As far as the pictures, I have uploaded the pictures to PhotoBucket through their automatic sizing and don't have a problem with the pictures being "cropped" to any other site besides here just like Travis stated.

Travis, I am not sure where the edit to large needs to done at. When 1st uploading the pictures to Photobucket or when I am going to move them to here?

Bill,
Once you get the pictures uploaded then you can resize for this site. Click on the pic you are going to upload, picture will appear super sized, scroll over the pic and you should see crop, edit, resize etc across the top of the pic, click on resize and then do the large size, should go from like 59% to 95% and then you can post it here. Whole pic will show up then. It has to be something with the the side bar setting here only thing I can figure out.

Try it and let me know if it works for you.

Chuck's 1970 Mustang: The Rebuild... - Page 5 Empty Update

Post  D. Sea on February 20th 2010, 10:34 pm

We worked in the shop today, in fact Chuck and Eddie dropped the rear from his old car last yesterday. We disassembled the rearend and it has 31 spline axles (Strange), Strange spool and a chipped tooth on the ring gear. That's in a Nodular case of course. Anyway, it looks like we are going to sale the rear (Heavy duty housing) from drum to drum and the center section. Then use that money to build a new rear with an aftermarket center section and 35 spline axles.

Also measured for the engine plates and Chuck will pick up the aluminum in the next few days so we can cut and build the plates. Need a 37" X 12" plate for the front and a 24" X 12" plate for the midplate. Typically one would use a .090" steel midplate however in this instance, Chuck already had a .250" aluminum 'spacer' between the Bell and the Block for converter clearance. So we will just build a mid-plate from .25" aluminum. Fortunately Bill thinks ahead and we already have bolt holes in the tubes at the firewall that are for the mid plate Idea

We also removed some pieces from the old car like tail lights, rear bumper and a few other odds & ends.

Tomorrow we will move Chuck's old car from the shop out in the auto graveyard behind the shop to keep all the trucks company. Or Tracy suggested we could bring it to our house and plant flowers in the car flower lol!

As I type, Tracy just finished off a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen. pig

Also tomorrow, we plan on placing the rear tires under the car and measure for the new rear and start trimming the quarter interior for the wheel tubs.

This week Chuck will also deliver the chassis to the powder coater in Harrodsburg (I think that's where it is). He got a smokin' deal quote on powdercoating the entire chassis.

Anyway, we are starting to make some progress and I'll get some pictures up in a few days.

That's all for now Cool
