With the motor seal wings and package tray there 4 hours of work there.
It will be LOW but still drivable. I just don't want SO much neg camber that it fuks up the trans and I like the front wheels centered in the wheel arch.
ordering my trans raise kit today "cause it easier than making my own" and a bus nose cone and then drop spindles. hop to have it at least on the ground in a couple weeks.
The wheels I want will be a while gonna deal with the white smoothy widefive i got at the swap meet for while. Need to save the monies for a bastard 40hp...
yeah i hear you on the tranny raise pieces. i could have made my own side plates for my bus but the time vs. money thing wasn't in my favor for doing it myself. plus detroit johnny has awesome turn around times for those semi-local to him.
and tell me more of this "bastard 40hp" you are about. i have 3 40hp motors just hanging out at present.
Order the trans raise today. Pick up my drop spindles tomorrow and the beam adjusters and urethane bushing will be here this week.
Remove the trany today for the trans raise. Cleaned and clear coated the rear deck lid
deck lid looks good tightnuts, did you rattle can the clear? I have a horn ring hear but P/O removed the ring so it just covers the center and dont have the half moon ring under it. I think that piece gets in the way anyway. He did a hack job but the two nubs just need to be removed. If you interested PM me and I will get some pics for ya. It would be real cheap... like I can drop it in the mail just to help the cause.
Smile it will get Worse!!
Yep. The patina on this bitch is killer. The PO did a little respray on the rear fender and from the front of the doors forward. Gonna carefully remove the respray and whatever body work is there and get it to OG standard "whatever that ends up being" and clear coat what's there..
For now the wheels are gonna be stock smoothies with 165 out back and 135 up front.
In the end I and going with 17" BRM "not a big fan of BRM's but love the 17" size" or 17" fuchs.
17" gas burners would mess my pants up a lot..
