I can't remember exactaly but when I set up my rear suspension I had to maintain a shock angle. Not ready to build just yet but will need to fab a set of shock / headlight brackets. Can you guys tell me about front shock angle? Sideways and front to back tilt? Thanks fella's

I always set my shocks from straight up and down to no more than 10 degrees.

Default Headlights

My headlights arrived today! There in great shape. 34 Buick with a single mounting stud at the bottom. There's a bulb socket on the bottom, maybe for a directional?

Hey Guys.... Just checking in. I've been putting in 10 or so hours a week over the last couple weeks but no real pictures to share. Still waiting for the radiator then I can go to town on the radiator support, grill bracketry and the grill shell.

In the meantime I'm long blocking the cab with a guide coat and 120. Another couple days and I can get to the roof, re-prime and hit it with 320 wet. It's very straight and very satisfing to me to guide coat block. Going slow with the shoulder....operated shoulder is great, it's the other side.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
