Wow! That will be a fun Burb! Are you going to open up the rear wheel wells any, or will that effect your rear seat?

I have 20x11 in the rear. I had to widen each tub by 3" (I think). Here are some pics of the cover for the rear notch. I also had to cut about 4" from the middle section out of the 3rd row seat. Hope that helps

Thanks Bret,

I'm further along than the photos show but It's taking me a while to post progress on here. We should definitely meet up sometime. I really like your build.

Accuair setup. Credit goes to my friend Zach Airth (Airth Defined Hot Rods). He does awesome work. The wood is in excellent shape for being nearly 50 years old.

I know some of these images might be out of order, but I've done a pretty lousy job at organizing them, so just go with it.
