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!
As Steve was installing his Welder Series coil over Mustang II crossmember, he snapped some pictures (do you still snap pictures with a digital camera?) and sent them to be added to our monthly photo sharing draw. I know he’s bought a triangulated four link for the same truck… I can’t wait to see those install pictures too! That’s great, thanks very much for using our parts, Steve.
Depending on your ride height, notching the top part of your frame rails might be necessary. The instruction sheets included in the kit will show you how to determine whether you’ll have to trim your frame or not.
Steve used a Mustang II 56″ track width for his ’52.

I think you'll agree that it's always nice to see young people doing some major chassis work instead of what seems to be a more common theme of "baubles and bolt-ons" among the younger folk these days.
We have had quite a few questions about installing our Mustang II kit in cars that don’t lend themselves well to a conversion. Sometimes “modifying the frame rails” is necessary. What exactly do we mean by that?
I thought I’d put together some pictures that show a few frames that have been modified to accept a Mustang II crossmember. If you have any questions about your frame or any of our parts, please email or call toll-free: 1-888-648-2150.
If you’ve put our Mustang II kit in something “weird”, please send us some pictures!
