Here a pic of the stripes on that scoop

so here is the 10" slick mocked up...

A little too close for me without doing the radius thing.. I'm about 1/4" off the leaf and hitting the quarter. I could probably get away with doing the basebase bat trick, but its still too close off the spring.

I think Im going with a 8.5-9" tire on a STD 8" rim.

threw the engine in so I could weight the springs down to check my shackle angles. Spent two hours getting them right. While I had the engine in there I couldn't resist tossing the blower and headers on there for a photo op.

Front susp is 100% welded up.

Saturday is front end assy

Yeh I remember it being crazy fast off the line but no high speed from the low gearing. You need to find someone who does diffs on the side. Actually we need to find someone who does diffs on the side.
