Mike Brattland's 1938 Willys Pickup Build Pictures / wb19


After stripping the front sheet metal, hood, fenders, inner fender wells, I began the installation of the Fatman Mustang II crossmember, suing the provided directions....I left the front I-Beam in order to mark the centerline of the front axle precisely on the frame.  the frame rails had to be boxed which was done first, as well as welding some braces to maintain the alignment of the frame.  This was the standard Fatman Mustang II front assembly, not their ultra low setup, which would have required "Cing" the underside of the front frame to provide the required clearance for the Mustang II Rack and Pinion.
