Just about to suggest that! Charlie.... 8/4/13..... This time give more than a couple hours so we can shoot the breeze a bit! I'll get you in something air cooled to roll up in if you come up to ny water cooled.

It's not likely, but I won't rule it out completely. Last year the planets aligned just right for once.

Was super well behaved yesterday, so I got the day 'off' today. Spent the morning addressing the ride height of the 63.

How she started. Bad pic, but scroll back and you can the ass in the air. boooo!
Image


Loosened the ebrake cables, and tossed her on stands. Pooped the torsion cover
Image

Lower shock mount, and the three bolts from swing axle to spring plate
Image

The torsion
Image


The spring plate
Image


ooops..... 2 clicks. too low....

Image

Back up to one click. that will work until I swap in the 2 inch fromt beam thats coming out of the 65.

Love the stance. With the narrowed beam it will make it look that much better. Keep up the good work.

rims and tires are on from the 65, while I sort out some stance mods/ shoes to the 65. Cruised out to bayshore today for the parade..... ran awesome. Much less rubbing with the 2 inch beam

What a pleasure to drive with the sunroof open now. The air noise and turbulence inside are reduced significantly.

Been driving the 63 alot since I got her on the road. Shes doing me well and shes a good running and driving car.

Installed the 019 From the 74 thing that recently got sold.

Used overriders that I got form Englishtown. They needed a few studs to be drilled out and retapped. Not perfect but better than nothing and better than aftermarket

Also adjusted the steering box today. Shes been a bit loosey goosey lately, but is back in line now.

I have a few things I need to iron out before litchfeild. I hope i have time to give her the attn she deserves before the trip.
