Nice work.
The farther back the engine sits in the chassis, the less of a bag and air pressure it takes to lift it.

It's getting closer!!!!

You guys are light years ahead of me when it comes to changing out front suspensions. Although I am contemplating a sub frame swap for the Dodge if it ever reaches that point.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

On to something different, I need different wheels for the rear, as far as offset goes, but still needed to widen the fenders. After two plans that would have bit me in the butt, I took the spare set of fenders from the second car and by staggering the cuts on them compared to the original I ended up with an inch and a quarter wider fender.

Just been collecting parts, and watching the dust build up on the car.
