Photos of the truck progress. Axels and wheels ready to press.  With the frame top side pieces done, Mel welded them together and when cooled a little, I ground the welds. Next up was making the middle frame member that went between the transom and the frame top.  Once they were bent, 2 - 3/16 holes were drilled on either side of the rods, then bolted up. The transom takes a plate over each end.  A shot of a bolster completed.  You can see how the swing links attach to the top.  All the spring cups located on the equalizer bars.   - Tom C
