    Was looking for it a while ago
    Zman deleted the thread after the photo bucket nonsense and his pics where lost.
    Sucks as it was supposed to be a great thread.
    There’s a post on team Buick a guy did it on a 55 convertible but it’s not that great of a write up or pics
  3. Thanks, it was great article and sorry he lost his pics.
  4. That is why when I find an excellent article here on the HAMB I hit print for an old fashion, just like the days of printed magazine, I can read it in my hands, then I file it into a binder, as I did with this one. I don't have to worry about busted links the next time I open the thread,,,,
    VANDENPLAS and williebill like this.

    Yah, that works, & I've been doing some of that too, + 'save page as' (although for some reason, not all the pics got saved in the past from different websites), but the new format(s) absolutely sucks for that. What used to take, say 3 pages, now takes ~8 or usually more, due to all the white space. Making the font smaller saved ~ 1/2 page, but now can't read it. I do wish there was a way to bring up a site as computer-friendly, or phone-friendly. Not everyone lives on the gd phones for everything. Marcus...

    The elpollako thread is just amazing what he done to that olds.

    But this was on a car that was clipped.... badly and he cut the front frame off, manufactured his own the hung the jag clip on it. Truly a work of art.

    From what I found in the web the old crissmember is cut out, and about 1 foot of frame needs to be cut out then set in or canted a few inches to clear the jag upper control arms.

    I have the front and rear suspension set ups out of a XJ6 to do the swap on my 55 special but on the fence if I want to go through another big project.

    Did the front swap on my 50 Chevy it was a bolt in and made a huge difference in the ride and handling.
