rear suspension

Mar 15, 2009 update on JoeyM's 1932 Datsun Type 11 Phaeton (replica)

I took the rear end off the maxima wagon and put it under the phaeton frame. The leaf springs are waaaay to long and too heavily arched to use in their current form. I’ll probably have them cut down and rearched to fit the new body.

I also took the maxima’s hood off and started removing the bracing so I can use the sheetmetal skin on the phaeton body.
