  • Moving forward

    OK,
    Now that my rear end is mounted considering that it is 1.5" wider than the dummy was I thought it would be good to take another look at body fit.
    First with my brake pedals on It don't (fit). Had to remove the brake pedals or the front fenders Brake pedals were easier this time but when I'm ready for the final build pedals will be on and fenders off.
    At this point in time I must say DANGIT I love my car!
    Here are some new pics. What do you guys think as far as the rear height ? I currently have it set where I don't have any adjustment down except for weight on the springs that isn't there yet. (get it?) Other than the springs being compressed all my adjustment is up.
    The front hasn't been dealt with at all because I don't have the final wheels and tires.

    Dean.

    I'm kinda fond of it myself. The closer to finished it becomes the better it looks to me.

    To answer your question, I don't know if it's camera angle but the rearend looks a couple of inches high to me.

    The title was a little confusing as "Moving Forward" reminds me more of AVANTI!!! Well! It's late and my humor ain't ready for prime time.

    A really righteous build.

      Dean, she`s looking pretty sweet to me, but one thing I do know is to get it out of the garage and then judge how it looks, roll it onto the street if you can and look at it from all angles....

      Not getting the brake pedals thing though, do you mean drums? This is going to be one sweet ride. Cheers, Junior

        The brake pedals got in the way when I was trying to lower the body on.
        No big deal just last time it was on they weren't there yet.

              The height looks spot on to me, but I agree with the suggestion to get it outside and look at it.

                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
