Here is my first shock bracket that I made for Chet. The top is an original the bottom is my repro. It ain't perfect, but it should work.
Looks great. Have a kid beat on it with a small ball pein for a few minutes and you couldn't tell the difference.
Tom, The bracket looks perfect to me. I have a number of the Ford shocks, some NOS so i'll just put the new brackets with NOS shocks and the used brackets, that I have, with used shocks. I really appreciate your efforts and hope I can talk you into making at least 2 more of those brackets. I have been collecting these shocks for almost 60 years it's about time for me to make sets up and 3 of those brackets would give me 6 complete sets of Ford shocks. Did you get the rear axel bracket that I sent to you yet? That bracket would have to be cast to make a new one.
Chet, I have not received the rear bracket. How did you send it?
Tom, I sent it Regular mail last Monday. Maybe, with luck, tomorrow it will show up. Nothing to do but hope for the best, sometimes the US Mail is not very fast.
Nice work Tom !!!
Yeah. I will second that "Nice work"! Having made many similar pieces over the years, I know haw tough it is to do and make it look so much like an original. Nice!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
