I am a college custodian and an old truck builder (49 chevy & 46 dodge). Vehicles are getting to be too big a project anymore. These look like they'll fit my tinkering ways. Just found 4 wheels (that's the hard part, right?) and got springs here last year.

Welded the cross bracing in the rear, the brake mount and the motor plate.

OK, can't leave well enough alone and made an upgrade. The bolt wasn't going to be long enough and I made this solution. A piece of all thread and a coupling nut. I turned down and knurled half of the coupling nut. Next ran the coupling nut up the all thread with a normal nut. Twist the all thread in to the bracket moving the motor to the rear. Turn the coupling nut down to 1/8" from the bracket and tighten the normal nut behind it. Take the adjusting bolt back out and drill through the middle o...
