I never make negative comments about other people's builds but in this case I feel the need to speak up!
I don't have any pictures to illustrate, but I think this car has an extremely dangerous design flaw in the front suspension, namely the front spring-wishbone location.
I doubt this car can be safely driven any distance.
If I'm wrong maybe someone can explain my error.
I don't think it was built to drive, more like the piece of looking candy Chief Lone Watie had in Josey Wales.
I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but I did find a picture of the wishbone area.
Like six ball said, I don't think that is a car that gets driven much if at all.
It does look a little bit on the flimsy side of things .
Sometimes it’s hard not to speak up like I found earlier when I commented on the RPU you posted with the wart like spoiler on it.
Now that you’ve opened up the door I have to say that the belly dragger styling of this car does nothing for me.
Heres one i just finished for a customer of mine,29 RPU the doors are stretched 6 inches to give more room in the cab,man they are small.the frame is stretched as well,steel body with glass fenders,49 flatty with a T5 tranny.It left here to be finished,i dont do that,im a bodyshop only.
Basic and looking good.
