Tobias Modified

Stared with a standard frame from a Tobias kit. Modifying both ends with suspension changes. First up added a torsion bar rear setup. Used brass tubing for the torsion tubes and will make some torsion arms.

Looks good, I like the torsion bar set up. Looking forward to seeing the front also.

Thanks for the feedback. Was on vacation last week and didn't have good internet reception so couldn't respond. Decided to tackle a little body work when I got back. Shortened up the trunk and trimmed the lower rear quarters. Will get back on the chassis and finish the front suspension work next.

Thanks for the clear rear torsion bar shots! They will help and come in handy!
