Part Five

Aka the walk like an Egyptian step.
After making the chassis rails to resemble stock Model A rails i wanted to make a kick up in the front to get the front end as low as possible without looking like a hacked up frame. For me the best way was to have the front sweep up like a 32' frame does.
To do this i cut a 7 degree Egyptian pyramid just in front of where the firewall ends.Then another pyramid behind where the front crossmember will sit to bring it back level. I've heard some people refer to this as a pie cut? Not sure why that is, pies are round where I'm from.

The end result of a 7 degree Egyptian pyramid cut will give a 3 inch drop over the standard frame.
And just trust me on the 7 degrees it was a major mind fuck to work that out.
