Most of the time the rear kickup is 10" to get over the axle.
If you do a Z frame the front is usually 6" and the back 16". This'll give ya a starting point.
Bruno's truck is out of site
Thank you! When you say 10" Is that 10" over the rear tubes..... with 16" being the total?

Yes.... Bruno whole set up is tits!

Yes on the 10" with 16" as the total.
The rear kickup is determined by the front kickup. 4" front 14" rear, 6" front 16" rear etc.
Then ya have the extreme like on the 53 AD build I m doing which is 8 in the front and 26 in the rear.

Thank you for that Old Iron. There's a lot of knowledge here and that's a cool looking frame. This poses another question..... Why so extreem on that frame. Wouldn't that set the motor way high in that engine bay? Dittio on the Bed?

I suppose I'd be 4 / 14....

Thanks!

Total performance was taken over by Speedway Motors. They don't have all of the parts that TP sold. I didn't buy a front end kit but pieced it together from different parts and companies. I'll get out my old bills and see if i can come up with some part #s.

Correction..... That wasn't a Total Products catalog I got i the mail it was from
Total Cost Involved. www.totalcostinvolved.com Kind of an odd name for a company that sells hot rod components.

The reason for the extreme rear section is the customer wanted it that way.
The engine isn't high in the frame at all.

Somewhat off topic but related to my build. Pictured is the surface plate of the welding table I'm fabricating. One of our machinists is running the plate on a CNC. Holes are 5/8" every 2" on center to accept the bar clamps and stops. Legs are adjustable at 24", 30, & 37"....low stool, bar stool and standing. Glad to be finally getting this done. Darn MPEG wont load here. Looks like you only get pics of the legs for now.
