  1. Mr. Burnbaum's is a veritable cornucopia of wholegrain mechanical goodness. I'm mentioning sources as we build back up, and his shop will receive a lot of credit before this is done
  2. This picture shows that this started off well, but I think we learned a lesson the more experienced on the forum already know. We won't post the following pics. We got lucky. The Plymouth Doctor let me and my dad pull the right spindle assembly from a parts car sitting next to his shop. Reasonable price too. Actually great price. Thank you Mr. Brandon. Advice from the Doctor, "Press, don't pound." Now we need to get access to a press. Dad had advised I tap not pound, but who hands a teenager a three pound hammer and say's tap don't pound.
  3. Completed: Rear Suspension with new Leaf springs and Shocks. First time so far that Im not just tearing down, but building up. Leaf springs from Eaton Detroit Spring. Fit well and silent block included. Used rear bracket original to the Plymouth, but replaced grommets with Steele Rubber products Shocks from Kanter.
  4. Eaton Detroit Springs on Michigan Avenue right off Rosa Parks Blvd. These guys are artist and can make the originals. We used these guys (we could pick up so no shipping) and they called us to confirm all the modifications for weight changes and then asked us how we wanted the hight to ride relative to OEM before making the front coils and the rear leaf springs. Highly recommend if your still looking for springs. I see I'm late on this now. Sorry

  7. POR-15 on the frame today. start painting suspension parts soon and then we begin putting it all back together.
  8. When you get to Old 23 we may pull in behind you if my 47 is driving by then.
  9. Anyone else planning on doing Cruise in Shoes run?
  10. Probably better off. It’s like going to the beach and not getting a chance to shower off right away. We’re rebuilding the front end and upgrading to disks so no issues there but I’m about to shift to the rear and hope it’s as simple as replacing the leaf springs and cleaning the drums but suspect we’ll be scooping sand out of the axle and differential too.
  11. Agree completely that it would have been better to flip the chassis and weld straight down, but we still haven't broken down the back half and the wheels are providing the stability. The body is still on the rotisserie too and it would be a bit before we could get enough friends together to switch it out. So I just lifted the front end of the chassis up so I could work on it.
  12. This was the before photo. I will have to re-drill the holes for the two bolts.
  13. Stepped up to the edge, looked over, and dived right in. My first chassis patch 😎
  14. Thinking more a like making it a hood ornament or get a second off ebay and using as a door handles. But thanks for warning me about the nuckle busting risk. I would of jumped right on to that exaust manifold bolt with this had you not warned me
  15. Grandpa gave me this one. Said old cars need old tools.
