    Sometimes a few relief cuts to get where you want to go. 857FD586-A260-481B-BDAF-B9E4B23FBFEE.jpeg ECF3351F-72C0-401D-B78D-1EAB1B6BED1B.jpeg 5FA6A5B2-B014-4AF7-A0E8-EF8E4928A74F.jpeg 2F9C276D-131C-492F-B203-C7B4342684D0.jpeg 1D31CDEF-B373-4FF7-A262-4F7FDF4179B7.jpeg

    Keep going and make things easier to see, going at it from the back to see the overlapping joints. 4F6D32C8-2FA3-4CAE-9E62-C4C84A02A48B.jpeg 05C6F98E-FF81-4B4C-AA3D-BEF9F535F193.jpeg 3C131D5E-223A-4D97-B184-519DB74BA47C.jpeg BCC116FB-DD0C-44D4-819E-D9DFE8678AE5.jpeg 5EABEDE9-2AD3-4E4B-8038-48EAA5BAE0CC.jpeg

    AACA430C-CF35-4B28-91A4-3BDA7B7F8B68.png You have almost the exact frame my son does.

    Any idea where these go on the chassis?

    This is the only part on the entire restoration we can’t figure out where they go.

    back side of the upper A arm front suspension on the inside of the frame in behind the engine mounts... what’s the length & width and bolt diameter size...?

    Are you talking about where the k member bolts to the frame? If so that’s where I figured they went but they don’t line up at all with the bolt holes.

    Parts are at the shop.

    But if I remember correctly they are about 1” wide and 3” long they also have a curve or slight bow in them. (End to end)

    Thanks for your help sorry to hi-Jack your thread.

    I have questions for you now! Did you paint each individual part and reassemble? What paint did you use and what is the climate where you at?
