Very nice! The only thing I see wrong is the engine has the distributor in the wrong spot, it's an easy remedy, simply remove that boat anchor and replace with an LS motor stir

That stance, oh lawdy! I have a pic some where of a '55 F100 that had substantial body work done. They lifted the rear fenders to sit flush with the bottom of the body, raised the front fenders to the same height and cut the necessary amount out of the hood. They got rid of the side steps and it laid body when aired out. I think something like 400 hours went into the body work before paint was done.

Nice look work so far. What crossmember did you go with. It's been quite a while since I was around any of that stuff. My old co-worker used Fatman's stuff and Mustang II IFS on his 55 Chevy. His dad and brother sat their 54 F100 project on a Monte Carlo Frame.

Heidts Mustang 2 ifs kit but I put air bag lower control arms and made the upper bag mounts to fit inside the shock tower. All original frame that we ground the rivets out of and took off everything we didn't need.
