    Well, about the rear axle... the fenders arent cut equally front and back... besides, when it flexxes, the axle moves back anyways. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    I cut the hood and made two rear facing air vents. I was having some problems keeping the motor cool, so I figured any air escape would help with the flow. It worked great! BTW, the motor is a 327 bored .060 over, so she likes to run real warm.

    The only desert in Canada in in southern British Columbia. It's the most northern end of the Sonoran Desert...and a bit of a drive for Mikey.
