    That's rad buddy.

    I cut the firewall out on my 37, but left the top portion before comes out at an angle.

    This was pre-channeling the body era of the build.

    bean, use short water pump and single front pulley it will give you a lot more room. - brad

    Bean, don't cut the firewall, I'll give you a hand if needed. Start with short water pump, one grove v belt pully, and a small distributor. You still might have to "TRIM" the firewall around the bell housing but "CUT" You are making Henry Cry (haha) See you for beers soon...

  19. I wouldn't be running airbag (or any) suspension off shock absorber brackets. Just going by the shot of the diff and airbag attached to it.

    I cut mine 3 1/2 all the way around,i just wish i laid back the windshield like the california kid,,,i have the pieces of the top in my tool box,,
     
  23. I was thinking of choping it 4" all the way around. Did you have problems lining up the posts without laying back the windsheild? Which pieces? Above the doors?
     
  24. If i had the money i would love to have a 33/34 coupe!
    The motor is siting lower then what i want it to be. I'm getting my frame mount's in 2 days and i will start working on the position. Pictures will be up soon......

    I'd rethink the four inch chop...mine's just under 3 inches and my windshield is just less than 8 inches.

    this is mine at just a shade under 3"

    here's one that's 4", and in my opinion, looks squished...
