    Thanks Tim. Big improvement in looks and steering response and no rubs. Would like to go lower all around, but would have to change wheels.

    I would leave it also. By the way what size and back spacing on the rims? What size of tires?

    73 LT paint detail question

    My son is in the process of repainting his 73 LT.
    It's Medium Orange 97

    My question is about the black lower rocker paint line.

    Where does the line run inside the door ...especially where it meets the rear 1/4.
    Pretty sure along the rocker it runs in the middle of the radius.
    But where it meets the rear 1/4 inside is where we're not sure how it should be.

    Anyone have a photo of the inside detail of the lower rocker paint line where it meets the body colour?

    Thanks.

    Brian
