53 ford truck upgrades

Got in this '53 Ford with a whooped front end. Time for some better brakes and suspension.
Although we are updating the underside the owner is keeping the 239 flathead v8. But the pan needed some relief.
I slice a little out of the pan and a little off the new x-member and we have just enough room to be happy.
Frame boxed. Modern Mustang 2 Hats and x-members tacked on and all double checked for the right alignment specs. All the pieces have been dry fit and it's time to pull it apart for final welding.
