Man, you are doing some serious mods to that thing. As much as I like cutting, fitting, welding, and turning wrenches I don't think I would tackle something like that. Good job!

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Now the question is ... do ya think I can get a 177 compressor and a Sniper EFI on top of it and still use a stock hood to hide it?

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Body mounts were off ... But Mo's took care of it ...now they need to work on trans and shaft tunnel it was a low and now needs to be cut and slightly modified so the yoke is clear and then get a "single" drive shaft made for it

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Body and chassis seem very tight now and once the rear wood is installed the body movement thanks to the poly will be zero

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Made one of the many big decisions on the project ... The Wheels
Going to run 20" all the way around and have chosen a BOZE wheel called "Traction" for the front and "Traction Concave" for the rear, now I need to decide on whether to color match or leave polished

Re: The Burb a long time coming

can't wait to get the 20" wheels on to see the stance better

14" wheels are doing it for me
