    I think your wheelbase will be too short.

    I've been wondering that myself but I did make the rear kick 12 inches longer than the ccr plans called for

    So if the motors forward a foot and the rear kick is stretched a foot......should be real close I think

    20151020_092029.jpg 20151020_091923.jpg 20151020_092029.jpg 20151020_091923.jpg 20151020_092029.jpg 20151020_092041.jpg so I am thinking of using 1 inch square tubing and keeping the body kind of square with maybe some contrasting angles about a three foot box and some 16 gauge sheet metal the cab will be about 4 inches longer than the door

    I would build it the front steering and suspencion brackets look week and rough and the corners of the cab and roof would need to be more rounded to flow with the rest of the body but i like it what did it start out as

    ^THIS was what i was going to say but I see you've already gotten on that.

    Get some cardboard and block out a bed on there. That'll give you some point of reference to see if your proportions are going to work out or not.

    Might want to get the motor position set before you mount the steering box. A Vega or Corvair box will give you more room to work with.
