Re: Moms wedding present 49 chevy 5 window LS 4L60e TCI frame

I think you will be trimming the inner fenders more to clear the suspension than the engine.

Mine (TCI chassis, 6.0 LQ4 motor) did not need any trimming except around the control arm mounts and for the A/C compressor mounted high on the pass side. The power steering fit tight for the return line but a little adjustment of the lines and it cleared.

Re: Moms wedding present 49 chevy 5 window LS 4L60e TCI frame

Got some work done today. Got the body mounted the shackles were a pain to drill out since the frame has 7/16 now which should be stronger, the steering column and and shaft in, and the brake pedal Noyes I gotta hear the running boards on and send it to Sanderson for the exhaust system.
