My 68 Chevelle Frame
After the body was off we got to check out the frame. Everything
looked amazingly good. The rust that was on the frame was surface rust
only. It looks like the frame had never been damaged or repaired.
Everything looks straight and surprisingly clean. Joe surprised me when he asked what color did I want the frame.
Then I was even more surprised when he said "besides black".

Well we went to drop the engine in and had a surprise
had misplaced the motor mount brackets and grabbed the ones from a 71 Chevelle
that happened to be sitting around the yard. Oops1 it had a big block which
means shorter brackets and not going to happen. Good thing we found the old
brackets and fired up the oven and our Powder Coat unit. In the picture the
bracket on the left is the small block bracket which bolts up perfect with the
94 LT-1 motor
the right brackets everything fits like a charm!
ready for the body
