Thumbs up tires

''schine'' l believe that front tires are a little bit small-----------

ya, but with the nova/camaro sub-frame it moves the tire/wheel closer to the fender. if they were taller or wider the tires would rub on the out side of the fender, if l move in the center of the wheel, then it hits the frame. so l made a compromise and this is tire/wheel combo l came up with that clears everything and still looks good.

PS still working on the wiring, got the guages in today.

Angry Aaaaarrrrgggggggggg!!!!!!!!

l had to change the master cylinder to a one l had off a van l parted out last year. the one on the camaro/nova sub-frame was shot. l went to AutoZone & got new front brake lines and the short ones that come off the master to the porportioning valve and got to the last one and AAAAARRRGGGG!!

the PolyArmour brake lines that ARN'T supposed to kink, kinked on the last bend on the last line l bent it on my high dollar tubing bender the same way as all the others so l don't understand why that one kinked. nice thing is l do enough business there, l called and they are gonna replace it for free.

ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhh 700 post, another ten years l'll catch up with the big boys

Sorry about your set back Glad the parts store is cooperating but it's still a pain when you are getting close to being on the road. Love those horns!

Thumbs up stance

Tim...Ok ' stance is everything..and you nailed it..''

thanks, took a lot of effort to get it just right. most every other hot rod l played with the suspension of mine had/has coils (chevelles) or adjustable coil overs. this is the first leaf type l have attempted since the mid-80's.

most of my friends vechicles had leafs, mopars, fords, novas, camaros, trucks and older hot rods. till l did the dodge, l forgot what a pain leafs can be to set-up correctly
