Gary Hall's F-Toy #52

Gary Hall has decided to allow Dalton Fab to build his F-Toy to the point of a rolling chassis. We are going to do all of the fabrication, he gets to do all of the not fun stuff (wiring, plumbing, etc) .

Here's where we are to date.

Jerry went off on the front end. This is as good or better than any chassis we have done so far. You can't see it but the steering box is soo far foreward Jerry had to clearance the fron't hoop.

We came up with something different to connect the chassis to the frame.

Don't make it to nice.

I have to wheel with this guy, I don't want my ass kicked by a leaf sping rig.

Looks killer

Yo Hobie, funny you should mention getting beat up. As Brandon said in an earlier post, "get used to it". The old man is on his way back to hand it to ya next season.

It's a manual shift auto, I will run it as is until I figure out what stall speed I need. 5.0 transfer and 5.29 axles plus the auto's added .5 of gearing makes me prety comortable. As far as the "Inchworm hideous blue powder coating" goes I see a trans, transfer cover in the immediate future.

Hey Garry, as much as I joke about getting your Ftoy done ASAP & getting you out of my passenger seat, you know your seat will always be there for you when we're running the tough stuff
