are in the corners, at the BOTTOM of the cowl.

Re: Dropped axle

TJ; how much was your axle dropped? Its my understand-
ing that 2" is the max due to the wider wishbone. (With a
reversed eye spring, the 3" yield would be about perfect
for me.)

thunk it would have been considered obsolete by then, and they
would have used their newish V-8.

Re: Aug/Sept project 2 to make 1 39 std cpe on sdn pan

Good advice from tub^^^. You may find the body a bit tweaked,
so door gaps will be a good place to start. Take many measure-
