Will she be ready by spring?
Nice progress. Wheels look good even if not as planned. I was wondering if you were busy with something else.
Probably not...maybe mid summer..
Yea. Reality and a real job. They affect us all.
Good luck with the build she is starting g to look great.
damn man looking great.
Finished the splitter after the 40th redesign..
The bottom with skid plates
Good old flex seal to seal the plywood
Bracketry so it can be removed with 4 bolts
All paired together
So while mocking up the suspension, ran into a little problem, the strut cartridge will bottom out on the adjusting plates.
Thus began my search for a shorter strut package, or possible some cheapo coil overs, what I discovered was that Fox body struts are shorter when compared to the 99-04 units.
With that info in hand, I decided on a set of KYB adjustable units.
The next dilemma was to rebuild the Cobra brakes, you can locate these rebuilt, but the ones with the COBRA stamp are $250 for each, so I set about rebuilding my own, since nobody does that anymore, the kits are very hard to locate, I finally found a set from Summit and ordered them...
I then set about disassembling the calipers and bead blasting them..
I used the heat gun to heat up the aluminum so it would accept the caliper paint.
