    Brown Bros do it again!

    Little update on the Business Coupe- Picked up the rear end today from Lorenzo's They went a head and welded up my lower brace, welded on my top front brace, built me a custom jack mount and added a tie down hook. Also had them throw in the 35 spline moser axels and C clip eliminators with 35 spline moser spool. This rear is also narrowed 1" on each side with welded axel tubes. Should take anything ill ever get around to throwing at it. Going to finish throwing her back together and put her back in the car in the morning! Roller will be 100% ready to roll by next weekend then its time to throw a junk yard dog together and start chopping heads. And yes I am putting the solid spherical bushings in as well. Thanks Steve & Chris

    I like that jack mount and the tie down loop idea. Pretty slick setup.

    That was a tricky one, I had to do a double take because it really looks just like a ford!! I havent seen those with a distributor setup like that before
