    These photos show I got the rearend narrowed 7 inches, the swaybar put in the frame on the rear. I don't have coil overs yet so I set it up with solid rods all around to set ride height.
    The front end I wound up widening the frame rails 2 inches over the original frame to let all the stock ls3 fit in between.

    After a lot of figuring. I decided that it would be just as easy to cut the body loose of the floor and remove.[ATTACH]

    The body looks like it will scrub up good and apart from the panel damage of the quarter panel, appears to be rust free. I too will be watching this old Chevy Coupe been mated up to the excellent frame you have built.


    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    I don't know what happened to taking pictures of mating the body with the frame? I got it mounted and figured out my wheel offsets an ordered my wheels an tires.20150314_152348.jpg

    So after mounting the body on all four corners. An getting the attitude I wanted. I replaced several sections on the lower rockers. It was ready for some wheels.

    The rims I believe we're called torinos,fronts were 18 X 10 with a 7 in. Backspace and the rears are 19 X 12 with a 7 inch backspace. Sounds wide but trying to put as much meat to the ground as I can.

    For my tires I went with nitto nt05. The frontsecond are 285/35 r18 and the rear are 335/30r19. Front tires wound up being 11.5 inches wide, and the rear wound up being 13.5 inches wide.

    I was pleased when I got the rims an tires mounted. Plenty of meat to put on the ground. Jonathan

    After looking thru my pictures, I realized that I ordered my wheels an tires to fit the frame ,an was going to make the body fit what I had. Here is my roller with the wheels on it.
