Doors looked like they got run over with a Delta 88











After a whole lot of metal work and a skim coat of filler.

wow great work so far love the HO and resto mod combo.

wheels look really nice too all parts choices seem well thought out

what advantage does the coil over up front offer over the traditional shock in spring ?

Thanks guys! RetroRanger, I lowered the rear 1" when I get it all together the coil overs give me the ability to set my ride height and stance easily.

ahh i see very nice then. Do / did you need to reinforce the shock mount area on the LCA or is it stronger on the after market arm ?

No. It's stronger on the AM arm. It's plate not stamped steel.

Nice car!!! can't wait to see the end results!! Love the gauges! They "fit" the car much better than the Dakota all digital ones I've seen for our cars.

Yea, Speedhut Guages were easy to work with and customize. I used the 4" Revolution Guages. To mount them I used the cans that the OEM Guages came in and fabricated some extension brackets to fit the bezels on just like O.E. I hate how some aftermarket Guages I see in the forum are just stuck into the bezels and sit almost flush. I wanted a modern twist to the factory look.

I wish I could tell you. I bought them at the Turky Rod Run in Daytona a few years back. The guy that sold them to me said that they were special ordered and not picked up. I got one heck of a deal....$2000.00 wheels and tires. They look just like the Lime Green 442 that's on the forum except for the bigger windows. I need to find a shop that can machine a new set of center caps that I can add the Olds decal too. Intro won't do it.

Looking good! Definitely ahead of me. How wide did you go with the stripe on the trunk. I see way to many that are too wide, but yours looks just right.

I got the original sizes and layout from Jeff Meister complete with the correct radius for the corners. I can post the layout if you guys would like.
