    bench looks nice and comfy . so many old yank trucks have the backrest too upright in an attempt to gain legroom but at the cost of back pain .
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Looks pretty much spot on to me. That's where it needs to sit to look right, why bugger about fitting a four link to get it lower?

    Good point six,but I'm planning on four linking and mustang 11 with Pb/ps upgrade with airbags.
    Kinda like the idea of dropping to the floor and still having ground clearance /comfort when driving...

    Had a play about today with some
    Plastidip , tried to paint the wheel centres for a new look

    Wonder if whitewalls suit this look, will try grill next

    Got the portawalls fitted , like the look













    Found the rears ok but as I suspected the front profile was to low which meant the fronts fly off after a few miles , need to increase profile or get proper white walls
