Which links? The pictures are showing up (on my computer) as thumbnail photos, but not as links to pictures.

What backspacing is that? Im hoping I can get a similar amount of "lip" on my front wheels but an 18x12 with ~9.5" backspacing doesnt sound promising

Great wheel choice BTW!

The fronts are 8.5 inch backspace which gives me a .375 inch scrub radius. I wanted to keep just a little positive scrub to account for tire deflection under heavy side load. The rears are 5.75 inch backspace to fit the Detroit Speed Decalink rear suspension.

Here are the Tilton 900-series pedals that I just received. They have master cylinders that pivot at the front to keep the push rod in perfect alignment.

Pappy -

Good to see you on this one (again?) I had to do some track damage repairs on the SR this past week, and was reminded; How satisfying Body Work is/can be.

Post Michael (hurricane) and a race at Sebring - I think I'll get back on "Elvira" too. I've been inspired by your lead. Just took 2 years to get the axles done!

Your work is looking good! "Two's In!"

Cheers Jim
