  3. Very nice lookin cabrio! First thought is if you don't want to use a dropped axle, have the springs re-arched/reverse the eyes. Loose a few leaves from each spring while your at it. I'd hang on to the wheels if you take them off. They ain't gettin any easier to find (for the future owner some day). Wish mine was that nice. Tim
