Default 1936 chevy low cab build 1.5T

It been a long time since i posted anything about my build... it has been outside all winter so it finally found some floor space for the next few months.. anyway below are pictures of my mock up... curious what the reaction will be

Heres where it started





it will eventually get a 2" chop, and if that goes well a 4-6" section... the body will sit 3" lower than the mock up as well...

The fronts are the tire size i will most likely end up with 32 tall... the rears are currently 38.5 tall, i will probably end up with 34" tall ones not as wide either, they are currently 8.5 and will probably end up 7" wide... if i end up running the rear rims.... those of you have been in the wanted section know i am looking for some rims... anyway...

more pics...

I would suggest, not sectioning it. Right now it appears have nice proportions.

The wheels and tires are big, but not too big.

...and besides, the big wheels will probably ride like crap. Three extra inches of seat cushion will be worth a bunch.

I think you are doing a great job. The cabs get real tight inside real quick when you chop and faster when you section. Just make sure you can fit inside. It is looking great.

Thanks guys.. started cutting the frame last night... im committed now

the reason for the section is the dash and window is so high when you sit in it even when it had the original bench in there... we will see...

still not entirely sold on my current back rims i really want tall skinny dual wheels out back but the wide rims dont really provide that look... ill keep looking... i can always change them out at some point down the road if i ever find more like the front....

Cant wait to see the progress. I think your vision is right on.
Your a lucky SOB to have access to good equipment for cutting your brackets etc
