Damn, I wish my dad knew at least something about cars.... He's more inept at mechanical work than a dog.

What's that damn dog doing drinking a Budweiser? Don't you realize that it's the King of Beers? Car looks great. You're an inspiration.

Re: 63 Galaxie Boxtop - CMEDROP's Build Up

Now that we had the 4link tacked together, we put the body back on the frame to see how it fits. It turns out that we needed to raise the trunk floor where it dipped. So we chopped out the trunk floor which we had finished.





The car at ride height. It will get a little more lift with the Airlift Dominator D2500 bags.



The car sacked out in the rear.





The gf taking some pictures. She has a way better camera, but we would be still waiting this time next year for her to upload them :nut



Oh yeah can anyone guess what I am doing tomorrow?

Re: 63 Galaxie Boxtop - CMEDROP's Build Up

The driveshaft was hitting, so we opened up the tranny tunnel. The original brace was way too low, so we made a new one to allow for the clearance we needed.



Just a picture comparing the new with the old.



Started forming the new tranny tunnel.



Tacked into place still need to clean up everything and finish it off.

Re: 63 Galaxie Boxtop - CMEDROP's Build Up

My friend Luke had a 79 Thunderbird sitting in his back yard. A deal was made and now my Galaxie sports a set of spindles + discs off a 79 thunderbird. The spindles apparently give you one inch extra. Thanks Luke.





Frame clearance of 1" or less when it is layed out now.
