Grant Schwartz stopped in the other day to pick up a Mustang II crossmember, and I think he had it installed quicker than my kids can go through a jar of Elmira maple syrup.
Here are some pictures he took. To see more of Grant’s work, please visit and follow his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/schwartz.inc
I came across this build on the 67-72chevytrucks.com forum and asked the builder if I could share the pics here. He used our step notch, rear four link, Panhard, and center section. Here’s the link to the build: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?t=653414
Nice work! Parts used:
Dear Welder Series…
Attached are pictures of my plan for the Welder Series rear sway bar kit that I am installing on my ’32 Ford project. At this time it is tacked in place and I think it will work as I hope. I still need to tweak the positioning. I ran the bar through the square tube crossmember and the arms ended up directly over the rear axle. Also you can see the Welder Series exhaust hangers near the transmission tail housing and one behind the pipe passing over the rear axle. These are the parts that I recently ordered from you.
Received this nice email from a customer last night:
Chassis fabricated by Rock Ridge Specialties using products from Welder Series
The GM A-Body frame was smoothed from the torque boxes forward and a new rear tail section custom built from the torque boxes to the rear with the frame kick-ups over the rear axle raised 2″ higher for a lower
The chassis is now ready for the remaining build at Wild Rides & Fabrication.
Rock Ridge Specialties is presently working on a ’52 Mercury Pick-up chassis for Wild Rides & Fabrication
Thanks to Paul & DW at Welder Series for providing great products!
Rock Ridge used a bunch of our frame curves in this chassis build. Nice work, and thanks for the email! We always like seeing how our parts are being used. Every month we give a $50 gift certificate to someone who sent us pictures of our parts that month. Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I recently made the front clip for my project (1934 Plymouth 2 door sedan). It was a pleasure using your Mustang II crossmember kit! My job was easy because the rails are level, square and plumb but the directions were a great help and easy to follow. Thanks for a great product!
You can also see how Jeff made a mock-up coil over using a tube with two tubes welded on the ends. This is always a good thing to have around to keep your car at ride height during the build. Remember, you use the coil over spring to support the car at the designed ride height.
Do you have some Welder Series parts on your car? Please consider sharing them; it’s always helpful to see other people’s work.
Thanks for using our parts, Jeff. Enjoy your Plymouth!
John was in to the shop the other day and asked if we had a bracket for his 8-3/4 Dodge rear end to mount the Panhard bar. We don’t have one specifically for it, and after going over some pictures he had, we brainstormed and came up with something like this:
He used two Versatabs to mount the bar and formed a plate to box them in and to hold the bolts.
Thanks for sending the pics, John!
Lloyd brought the GMC dually he’s been working on by the shop today on a shakedown run. Hope the HEMI’s putting off some heat… it was about 20 below zero (Celcius) today.
The Webber Chassis shop truck is taking shape with a bunch of Welder Series parts...
Grant Schwartz has sent in some pictures of his 302 installation into a 1974 MGB. He modified the 3/8″ engine block plate and welded a section straight down from the mounting holes.
It's for a 1951 Prefect, and the finished track width ended up close to 48", with 5/8" narrowed control arms.
Let me explain.
Nevermind, let the pictures explain. When we say it’s a universal sway bar kit, Daniel took us up on that claim.
Daniel, I’m guessing you spent at least an hour or more figuring all this out! I don’t know anything about bikes, but this is very impressive. Thanks for the pics, and for using Welder Series parts.
Mark just sent us a few pictures of his Welder Series MII installed in his ’51 Chevy truck. Nice job Mark!
He used our coil over kit, which is a little bit less expensive than the coil spring crossmember kit. The coil overs will cost more up front, but will be easier to fine-tune the ride due to the availability of shock damping and a wider range of spring rates.
Mark has been added to our monthly draw to receive a $50 credit on his account here. We draw a random name from those who send in pictures of our parts being used on their car. Please send pictures to email@example.com.
Low West Hot Rods sent us some pictures of a neat installation of our tie rod end mount kit, and I thought I should share them!
I keep meaning to send you pictures of the install of the Mustang II - see attached photos. It came out excellent! I couldn't be happier, great instructions and a very high quality kit from you.
