Was waiting until I had installed them.

Looks good. What size did you go with? For a drag car I'd have thought you'd go with a narrow tire.

vwfye Sat Sep 19, 2020 4:14 pm

175/55r15. I still want a contact patch if I need to panic brake.

Ok, I don't blame you. Rob likes how low it sits, but didn't see the bottom beam clamps holding the front up off the ground. :wink: He likes how it's moving along though. 8)

That is because it isn't clamped.

The ride height target is 4 inches at the bottom of the frame head and 3.5 at the bell housing at the rear. So, more rear adjusting to come after the new rear subframe is installed.

So, still moving forward:
The exhaust is on its way



The front suspension is complete.



And the rear IRS changes are happening

So have you checked your CV clearance yet? Just asking as you are building a Drag car with that rear sub.
The rest of the parts look good, and the beam looks good bolted in place.

I have some options still, as I won't be running torsion bars.

Body is going back on the rolling pan Saturday! Woot!

Cool. I want to see some pics of it on the pan. :twisted:

vwfye Thu Oct 01, 2020 8:40 pm

You and me both!

vwfye Fri Oct 02, 2020 6:07 pm

Seat/base position is set. So, after the body goes on, the seat will be mounted and then on to wiring... woot!

2 old guys, 1 engine hoist and 75 minutes. It is on!




Bobnotch Sat Oct 03, 2020 6:16 pm

Nice. 8) Looks good on there with those rims. =D> I didn't realize that had a full Mickey on it. :wink:

vwfye Sat Oct 03, 2020 6:38 pm

Yup. 1965. The nose will go lower, but it was easier to move at that height.

OLD GUYS RULE

THE OLDER WE GET
THE BETTER WE WERE

Now, now I am happy with the stance in the front.
