I am happy to announce that the Studebaker's chassis is finished! I took it for a short test spin yesterday and the overall package stops and steers nicely. The differential is great and it puts the power down to the pavement beautifully.

I'll be putting the chassis through it's paces over the next few days so I'll put together a short film of the activity.

I will also be posting the first video of the Body building series soon. cool smiley

Terrific work again Dennis! Is the .063 aluminum pan stiff enough where you step in to resist deflecting/distorting? On my plywood floor, I needed to add a cross member under the step in area.

The floor moves only slightly. It is about 15" across at the point where I stand so it holds me up pretty well. I'll probably brace it right where I step in for good measure.

I had the chassis outside for test driving yesterday. I sure like the differential set up, it feels solid. Testing continues today, I'm working on a short video too.

Just finished watching your new build videos, I see another best of show in your future. Great details.
It's zero here in IL and your wearing shorts, no fair.
I have hooked another builder out here. He's just starting his frame planning and coming over to see the Bri-gatti tonight.
Happy building!

Dennis, I've been surfing the forum for the past year while
I get my horse barn remodeled into a working shop.
I've paid special attention to the information and videos
that you've posted because your the most prolific builder
that I've seen so far. Since I'm laid up for the next few week
or more, I've finally had the time to go thru all of the stickies
such as the inspiration cars, the plans and drawings,
all the videos, the lengthy archived past threads, etc.
I know you've used Big Print and that inspired me to pickup
a copy and scale up the cars that I've been interested in.
But the thing that eludes me in all I've read is how you are
doing your initial drawings before you blow them up full size.
They're obviously not done on CAD, are you still using your
old K&E drafting table, tee square, Staedtler-Mars triangular scale
and drafting pencils?
Some of your drawings even appear to be inked?
Brian had his sketch blown up and printed out banner size
at a PostNet facility for, what he posted, $16. Told sweetie face that
I spent that much and more for ink and paper with my Big Print
program and then spent the day gluing all those 60 pages onto
the cardboard.

And that was Can.$ Denny
An I didn't tell you that the printed two of them for me (first one was not quite to the correct final scale) but was thrown into that $16.00 price.
Brian
PS
No glueing or taping.

Oh......and yes I am still on the couch too, awaiting my breakfast.
Snowing out there again.
