We had to stretch the rear quarters to accomodate the 14.5x32x15 Mickey Thompson slicks
Look at how thick the bondo is on the fender flare that someone extended

Rocket surgery at its finest!

Is that an Alston "kit", OI? Are you going to cage it?

Yes it is an Alston kit with Speedway brake caliper brackets.

Didn't realize I had no pics of the cage so went and took some
This is a 10 point cage. I still have to put the door bars in with hinges and pins.
I'll put bars in the engine compartment which will make it a 14 point.
