      I have been looking at the catalogue and cant find that steering box raise kit you mentioned a few months ago. Maybe its discontinued? If you can find a link, please send it over Im ready to get the wrench out tonight and get started.

      No acvw this year just the slamwagon in tow

      specs on the beam? Looks like its only narrowed 2 inches. If you had gone with 6 or 7 you would have had a better chance of getting it to scrape up highway reflectors!

      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.

      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.

      2 of my 3 fit that bill the other is locked up from sitting but i'm betting if you cracked her open she'd be standard all the way thru.

      i like 36hp motors

      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..

      Im not a big fan of the BRM's either. The Fuchs are a different story. Now if some one made full chromed 17" gas buners i would drop dead over those.
