Got some hours in today; should be wrapped up with the sheet metal work tomorrow.
Its a little Frankensteinish, but the "mini tubs" are done.
A lot of work to gain 3" more in tire.
Great job! It's a lot more work when the trunk floor is rusted out like mine was. Tough '55 you have there.
Rear end is in and she's progressed back to a roller
On the to do list:
- re-wire back half
- fuel cell, line, and vent
- relocate battery
- battery disconnect
- driveshaft w/ 1350 joints
- driveshaft loop
got the battery disco installed and started on the fuel cell. Ran the disco in the rear quarter and out the back up light
Nice to see your still moving ahead.
Can't believe it's been 7 years since I started this thread. Time flys when you're raising kiddos!
not too much to report, got the trunk painted up, fuel and battery / tray mounted.[/URL]
she's a driver. test drive was a little sketch in the rain
Still have a lot of little of things to wrap up before I can hit the track.
I'm answering an old question but somebody else might need this info...
I had a pair of 15 x 7 wheels they had a pair of 275/60R15 tires mounted on them. They didn't hook at all.. I could see the center of the tread slightly bowing out. The BF Goodrich 275/60R15 tires had a tread width of 9". When I switched to 15 x 9 steel wheels using the same tire. The tread was perfectly even all the way across. This pair of 15 x 9 steel wheels with 275/60R15 tires hooked like never before.. Same tire wider wheel makes such a big difference since the tread is flat all the way across..
