    Yes I did run into a clearance problem. I had to cut the shock mount off of the left perch and relocate which has changed the geometry a little. I'm probably going to to do a better modification in the future.

    Crap, that's what I was afraid of. Maybe running a passenger side backing plate on the driver's side would work - stagger the calipers WS6-style.

    Did you hook up the parking brake?

    Actually, I had not considered that idea. That might just work. No, I have not yet hooked up the parking brake cable. I will have to do some improvisation on that like everything else :) Hope to see your project progress.

    Again, after far too long of not working on it, I got the bug again to keep pressing on. Classic industries had a sale so I bought a cowl hood, hinge pins/bushings, inner door handles, and rear package tray. Everything out the door was only $346!

    What the heck, photobucket wants $400 to host photos? Sucks, none of my photos work except these. I'll have to update all of them, major bummer.

    Ordered my wheels (two showed up today). Going with 20"x8.5 in the rear, 18"8 in the front.

    Also replaced the front cracked windshield with a new one ($175 installed).

    Pulled out the back glass to fix the one and only spot of rust on this car. Stripped and cleaned the channel and applied a rust seal. Need to do some welding/grinding then re-install the glass.

    Been fixing my photobucket destruction. About 1/2 the way through the fix. Sucks what they did. . .

    Are you using imgur or something else. I started and tried Google photos but couldn't get it to work.
