Comparing the model to the sketch I need more length in the body.

Fingers and toes crossed!! I think 27" wheel base may be to long for this, unless you make it larger then 1/4 scale... I think?

Hi , That's just a starting point for the wheelbase. I saw frame spec of 107" to 109". I just wanted to get the frame at the rear to look right then the body to fit . If the engine fits in the space left then I can shorten the wheelbase.

Pt I'm working with someone that may produce a C-Channel frame rail and cross member for me, they still have to get back to me. This type of frame rail I'll leave to the people with water jets and experience, tube chassis I could handle. I'll let you know when it happens, you never know you might be able to use a set for this build?

It's going to be very if not exactly like this. Being that your build looks to be in the T-Bucket and 32 hot rod area, these might work. Just waiting on an answer from the fabricators.

Looking at the model and the full size car. The frame was straight from the front to rear. Not a wedge shape.

Looks like a cool project , a lot of creativity. How do you post pictures to this site? I'm working on a pair of 70's fuel altered, Nanook and the Rat Trap. Nanook is done except for paint and the Rat Trap is in process
