Time for an update...finally !!!!

I got my Moser Dana 60 through Frank at Prodigy, and got the final suspension all mocked up.... the final pinion angle isnt set but everything is pretty close. I did have to trim some of the rear crossmember to clear the center section at full drop, but didnt cut into the trunk. Getting the exhaust up and over should be real fun


Next was the T56 Magnum through Hurst Driveline conversions.... thanks Tony Edler and thank you Greg Weld ( he helped me avoid the sales tax hit ...)
Since we channeled the front k-frame, I did end up having to cut up the tunnel again to get a decent engine angle.....it was so sad to have to cut up some of the wonderful Race Rodz fab work...I shed a tear...what a shame. It looks like I'll have to do more tunnel work to get the driveshaft in there....oh well

The pistol grip shifter is real cool....but kinda high....I'll probably cut it down once the interior is more complete.

I like the tall shifter - kinda reminds me of a Rat Fink version!!

Now the fun stuff....Once I got the rear end mocked up I was able to actually air the car up and down....oh baby !!!

This is the probable ride height. It will get fully dialed in once the car is all loaded up, but this should be real close. Its based on the Ridetech recommended shock length at ride height. Its also going to depend on if I got the BS on the front wheels nailed or not.... I wanted to be able to turn the car but not have the wheels sucked in real far. I'd love to drop it a tad more in front. At this ride height I have 6 inches at the engine crossmember and 5 at the frame

Today I worked on making a trans crossmember. Since the trans is raised, I have to make my own. I'm using part of the original crossemember and adding some 1.5x 2.5 0.125 square tube. I spent a couple of hours trying one idea and I wasnt happy with it, so gonna try a diff design tomorrow.
