Default A little progress on Nickelback

Been awhile since I have posted any updates due to there hasn't been any Well I'm back on it now. Just got it back from my buddy, Jim , who is doing the bodywork. Had to replace the driver qtr panel and the 3 tail pieces below the trunk. The qtr had been replaced at one time & they did a botch job. The tail pieces were full of rust, typical for tri fives. As you can see in some of the pics...Jim is quite a joker!! Came out killer. Now I can fab and tie in the new floors. By the end of the month I'll have the body back off and it goes in for stepped headers & exhaust. Finally forward progress....

Thanks for the props, guys. Feels good to finally be in the mode again.

The stance in the picks will be final ride height. Rockers are 4.5" in front & 5.5" in rear off the ground.

As far as the wheels, they were designed and built by Mike Desmond. He had them on his Chevelle. He desinged a different style he decided to use. He is letting me use them as rollers. They actually ended being the same exact size & offsets I needed.

Question to all - I'm using 305/40-20's out back right now. Does anybody know off a wider tire that still has some height to it? I want to keep it atleast 29" tall. I still have alot of room for more tire but need height to fill the wheel well. I have checked all my sources with no prevail...

Thanks again-
Brent
