Teardown pictures help. So far the wiper motor works as does the heater motor. I have the drive train in including a new driveshaft. Exhaust system, suspension, brakes still getting all the air out but it's almost done. Dash and rewiring all the bailing wire and bubble gum mods is the fun part right now. Have the cooling system in and filled with no leaks. Trunk area is done, headlights and taillights work.Wow, you have got alot done since getting out of paint jail. I admire your ability to reassemble all that....you must have done it a few times? Or your memory is still brilliant. Looking great sir.
This is how high it was when I brought it home from the shop with the new springs in and no weight, and those are 28" tires. Had the front of the rear fender modified to allow them.Stance is good. If the back were lowered just a little, I think it would be perfect.....but I would probably live with it or address it if you have to add a wedge for pinion angle. I bought 1" aluminum lowering blocks and cut them into wedges to correct angle and lower 1/2" with one piece.
The reason for the taller tire is at 70MPH a 28" requires 500 rpms less to get down the road then the 24/25" tire. I wanted to keep the rpms under 3K at 70. Also if I ever drag raced her a 28/29" slick fits easily. That or 2 couples and a 12 pack and she won't be riding low.Wow. It has come down alot!. And you are right...That is a tall tire in there.
