With all that room you have over trans now seems stupid to not move turbo forward anyway to help with weight distribution Smiley

I know. Need to flip the centre in the IC then also, but should be easy enough..

 I really like what you have done with your chassis except using the torsion housing . Like Richie said shedding that would reduce some weight . I am working on my car right now, a 66 bug , back halved with ladder bars and a swingaxle . I cut mine off about an inch behind my ladder bar mount pipes. I plan to run everything inside my hollowed out tunnel, lines and wiring .  Great work , keep it up, Mike McCarthy

Cost and time wise it was easier to just make 3 inch raised mounts.

Transmission is raised 3 inches

Looking at pics of rear end, a pair of motor plates would attach easily then you could lose the frame horns

Yes, but then I would need new motor plates and placement of the new motor plates if I need a Mendy in the future  Roll Eyes



I think I'll stick to this plan for the time being. It will be a lot better than what I had..

Looks very nice!
Are the rear coilovers going to mount to the bars across the top of the gearbox?
Is that a likely spot?

It will get some bars to the top mount. Not 100% where it will be in the pictures, but the math is done, and cage builder has angles and lengths to build from.

Some sort of triangulated top mount  Smiley

It will need a few patches of new metal in the body before I start on the rest  Roll Eyes

Having a beer and drawing up the wheel/tire combo.

Have 11,5’’ of room behind the fender.

Going Hoosier 9.5 DOT tires on a 8’’ rim I think. But need to remeasure again before ordering

Did a mockup with brakes yesterday. 8’’ rims with 3,5” backspace will do the trick. I have 9,5” Hoosier dot slicks lying around, but I’ll have room for 11,5” slicks also. The Hoosier DOT slicks are measured at the sidewall.


Brakes are ordered. Wheels and tires will be ordered ASAP  Grin

While waiting for parts, one can only tinker with other stuff.

Longblock is back together. Need to re-gasket the transmission, before I swap that in to the car.

Then engine and the start of the new exhaust and intake
