I got the chassis back from my friends powder coating shop today.....Here are a couple of pics. I should have all the suspension parts back tomorrow. All the A arms, links and swaybars will be gloss black, the tie rod adjusters, bushings, and tranny x member will be gloss red, hardware will be chrome or stainless.....kind of a reverse of the body/interior color.

Damn, that is sexy. About 20 years ago I powder coated my XLCR Harley frame. This was the first time I ever delt with powdercoating. Back then, just like Henry Ford, it only came in black. When I put it together, man I had some serious issues. No grounds anywhere. Make sure you take a grinder to all chassis grounds before attching wires. My frame still looks like new. I love powdercoat!!!!!!!!!!!!

That aint a frame, that's a work of art. Any apprehension about driving that car will vanish as soon as that blown motor fires up.

Jet, The chassis is getting wrapped in plastic, mounted to the body, then the final body work and paint will be done. REASON: The body man dosen't want to pain, then mount because panels could warp during the process......he does it this way all the time. Makes sense to me. I am doing my best to get outta NY....the roads, taxes, politics and winters here [email protected]*k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D
