Pushing their luck. True Hotrodding rule no. 1
Denny, dzus buttons and Bilstein shocks. You got too much loot.
I've been patiently waiting for your Tech thread about installing a laptop mount off the dash of all your cars Danny. Must have one, surely. Well...
Moriarty, most, if not all of your cars are definitely unique in one way or another. Very cool.
31Vick, those disc brake rotors push the wheels out a lot further than drums do.
Stand in front of your tire and give it a good kick. Watch it...
Thats for sure, I'd be too busy staring at the car to notice..
That is a novel idea, but now what will be designed to hide the IFS
Well I hope you find something that will comfort the curse. Nothing bloody worse.
I planted the lights on the coupe real low, only because it...
I was thinking, if it performs as good as it looks lookout. Then scrolled down and saw the coupe.
Awesome. Nice stance.
I'm sure we covered this in a thread you started back in November
That beach coupe looks good because it's broken up with white and many highlights. Stand back from your car, close your eye's and let the...
Excellent choice ditching the french'd plate. Nice alterations.
If you can imagine dangling your car over the edge of a cliff, and only held by those anchor points without it falling, that's how strong they...
Actually the so-called shitbox it's in is more relevant to this site than anything. Spreading the traditional gospel certainly rules out HQ Holdens.
Maybe you've stumbled on the wrong website. Early 70's HQ holden, fuck me.
Lucky shit. It actually looked better with those old wheels.
31Vicky, agreed. After-market support is there. Monkey see Monkey do. I know a handful of hotrodders where an 8" would more than suffice, the...
So why do most people think they really need a 9".
Your motor looks pretty low, how close are the drag links to bottom pulley. But you did say you've done it before.
It must have some kind of cross brace surely. A few things to get right there. Heim's rod ends for track only. Throw a D/shaft safety loop at it...
Thats a bloody cool A coupe.
Interesting the shallow spring shackle angle. I've had a few A axles and most of them had shackle wear on top of axle. I guess the only way to...
Cool build, and thread saved for future reference. Keep spreading the Hamb gospel.
Some of the best sunset/rises you'll ever see come out of Australia. Chime in lads.
Now that would look fucking hardcase.
All the best Jim, you talented bloke's need to stick around.
Personally, I wouldn't be throwing any primer at it until your finished all your modifications, welding etc. You could preserve it with epiphos....
Any plans to alter or modify. And what's it off/for.
Sometimes we like to be different, but things can get a little industrial looking, like using a cam-shaft as a spreader bar. Less is generally more.
I think they look better under a cross-member where it's designed for. I like that you're thinking outside the box, just careful on R-rod design....
