Very nice.. I had a lot of fun riding around in this car in Chris's back yard, it should be fun again riding it in a coal mine.

posted up some pics from todds work last sunday. the wheels were back underneath it and bolted in from getting the axles widened so, we pushed it in the shop and got to work fixing a crack in the frame, welding the doors on and welding shims on the axle to keep the frame from shifting side to side. all its waiting on is the couplers to get finished being machined.

What did you end up doing to fix the crack? Drill it out and then put a plate over the crack? Or did you try welding it?
