 John,

   The  frame  I am using is a  rust -free 57  Silver Hawk frame  which I am told is better  yet. The tips  and  advice from your  build is a lot  of  help! I find that the chassis your building is  a lot like  what I had  already had in my head! thanks for  the  advice

John,
 I like the removable dash idea, thats how I built my oldest sons Mustang. Ill be  using a modifed form of a 56 Hawk dash with the engine turned overlay. My 1st 54 that I had  was a modifed shell {too crusty} and was set up for mid engine, but anyways  the guy had done some  sweet fab work on it which included an idea I may use on mine. There was a piece of roll bar tube welded at the highest point between the upper door hinges,it seemed to really stabilize the  structure, unfortunately I forgot to snap a pic of it in place!

John,

I need a bit of tech help,,,, feel free to answer here, or send me an email..

How far off the ground will the rear of your frame be ?  (the main frame rail just ahead of the 4 link attachment points? also the main frme rail height off the ground in the door sill/rocker area?)

I am trying to get an idea of how far my rear frame kick up needs to be..

I was thinking I need to be as little as 4" to as much as 5" off the ground (bottom edge of main frame rails to the ground) Huh

John, Thanks..

I was doing some figuring and felt 4 inchs was just a bit low and 5 inchs was the "target"... My 4 link is about like yours,, It is a  AME "big tube" kit and has enough adjustments to use 5 inch as our baseline chassis to ground clearance.

Keep up the good work and thanks for all your help.

John,  how far do you plan to set the engine back?  Are you using the stock firewall?

I plan on using an all new firewall (smooth) .103 thick sheet Metal... rules say min firewall thickness is .090 so we found some that spec's out right at .103... kinda heavy but should do well for fire and our small blast !!!
