I picked up this Frame which was almost a rolling chasis except for the wheels :) about 1.5 years ago. It has been a interesting to get to this point of rebuilding something that was almost done a while back but never fully completed. I hope to log the build here and complete it.

This is the link to the original build

I will post some pictures

Just so you know, the next generation SR2 wing will fit on that chassis (pictured in my sig)......


The rail in the back of this pic with the grafix is the same model as yours, but he got my new wing. To date, his s the only one of that style with a wing

Thanks for the pictures Yoshi.
Couple of changes on this one as it was setup for the Jeffco system, I had to have it, and I'm going with coil overs instead of airshocks.
I will post some more pictures up this weekend because moving it to the pation. As you can see from one of the pictures working on it any longer in a 1 car garage is supressing progress.

I have to admit the shear amount of rust on that does scare me a bit, it seems to be beyond surface rust.

I don't suppose I could talk you into a new frame kit with a nice discount on the agreement you chop up the one you have, could I?........:D

You can use a lot of what you already have, all you would need from me is frame, a-arms, trailing arms and spindles. Your bearing carriers, outboard brakes, shocks, seats, wheels, rack, etc. will all work with the new frame.

You would be getting my new SXR chassis, which is actually lighter than the one you have now and setup a lot better than the one you have, which was designed about 6 years ago, so i've come a long way in both design and functionality......

Just wrap some duct tape around it and go! That's what Jethro Bodine would do!

[Jethro and Cousin Pearl are driving in the truck to Jed's place]
Cousin Pearl (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0046319/): Jethro, did you take care of those old brakes like I told you to?
Jethro (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0046033/): Yes, Ma, I pulled them off the truck (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106400/quotes#) yesterday. The new brakes should be coming in the mail next week.

The rust is a concern but that is the way I got it and it appears to be mostly surface rust nothing penatrating. was able to wire wheel it off fairly easy so I think I am going to get it blasted then see where I am at.
I should do that now before spending anymore time on the frame.

spray it down with WD40. Keep any more from happening.

Powder coat, needed to see how it was going to look.
Low risk of any additional welds on this piece.

PC guy was sure impressed by the welds, hmmm who did those, LOL

The coil is bolted up in the bypass location, FYI.......:p

Arrrg, I know, the springs dont fit in the other spot, possibly only you would see that. How much difference will it make?

Guess I was wrong, it does fit, but man is it close, 0.125" between the spring and trailing arm. I typically deal with sub-micron stuff so looks good to me.
Getting the front ones on tomorow.

Long as it's clear. You just got more wheel travel.....:p

Yesterday I recieved all the springs and installed the shocks so I could have a rolling chasis. Really needed to move this thing out of my 1 car garage because having no space was not very motivating.
Pics of the rollout and new workspace on my patio, why not, no one to tell me not to.

Installing the gas tank and radiator, radiator has the integrated oil cooler which I thought was pretty cool and a good deal.
