    what is the lower control arm that you used on the front? Did you use the stock upper arm? I am wanting to do the same with my 52, but want to rock the stock suspension as much as possible. Thanks.

    Just as a precaution you should add a support bar between the two rear bag mounts to help take some of the stress off the welds. Looks alot similar to my own set up on my Cadi.

    Looks good so far, I believe I have seen your car at a few Morris cruise nights and Hunnert. I like the color, different than you see al the time.

    alright well lorak: they are ride techs tubular lowers for a mustang II they are usually like 400 or 450 but i got them for like 120 or something they are stock mustang II uppers the main reason i did the tubular lowers were just the simplicity of them i would have had to modify the lowers beyond belief but im not saying it cant be done so good luck haha.
    resqd37Zep: yeah im gunna put another piece of 1 1/4" pipe so it will be plenty strong and your caddy looks bangin buy the way.
    greaser: thanks man yeah i dig the color im still gunna chop it do body work and repaint it with the same color but ill flake the shit out of the roof.
    chevyshack: dude please tell me your joking haha its hard to tell but there is some gold flake in the wheels im gunna put some 6" eide wheels on it so i have a little bit more clearance im thinkin white with blue flake.
    wicked50: thanks homes
    i appreciate all the input guys thanks

    You could give them to me. I'll run them on my 52. My wheels are all stockers and tires are all flat and dry rotted.
