I happen to like the look of parallel leaf springs on the front.

Yes, Flip. A pretty simple system too.

Doing all the small non-picture worthy stuff. Dave, at Dave's muffler shop bent a pair of 90 degree pipes and put a flare on one end for the donut gaskets that fit the manifolds. Here's how the exhaust system sits. High and dry. Another leg burner.

My friend Jeff, aka Titus, gave an electric fan to me. No mounting brackets. Made these out of 1/8" by 1/2" flat stock. They fit in the rectangular holes in the fan housing.

Better to be here with us....but not in pain.
My name is Steve aka Technician!. Torchie is my brother, and he introduced me to this site. Such a great bunch of people on here! Time, distance and family have caused us to not be in touch so much for the past many years, but in the last 2 years we have re-discovered each other due to our love of old cars. I bought a 1952 Caddy about a year ago, and we have had, up until recently, daily phone conversations about it and his Dodge...as well as the 1950 Caddy that he wanted as well. When ever I was up his way, I would go over and work with him in his garage, "imagineering" (as he coined it) over what approach to take on a particular obstacle at that moment.
As many of you know, he is not well.
I am hoping that he will see his way clear to advertising his Dodge for sale so as to relieve him of the additional burden. I spoke with him today and continued the encouragement.
Best regards to all.
Didn't mean to butt in on this thread...just happened to see him mentioned so I thought that it was as good a thread as any to mention him.
