Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

lolife99, I didn't think about that. How much do you think I should cut off? I also do not want the bag rubbing on the pocket..

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Personally I would cut as much as possible. I can’t remember the total height but it seems like somewhere between 1-5/8 to 2 inches total height when done.
You might have to mock up just the cup in the a-arm to see how much too tall it is.
The shorter the better in my opinion.
I have tubular a-arms and I still think the ride height is too tall.
Much more than my old 5.5/6 static drop.

Also what brand bags are you using?
You can usually go to their website and find the correct ride height.
Then you’ll need to remember the pressure to get them at that height,... or with Accuair, set your sensors at that height.
Also have your front end alignment done at that height.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Been a while since I had an update, but I have one now.. I finally got my 59/60 Impala gauge bezels from the plater. What do you think? I am liking the copper plating look..

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Those are so nice.
I guess you just increased your future polishing duty or is there a protective coating on them?

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Thanks guys! It is definitely going to be a show truck. I figured it is a good way to advertise my shop.. I figured there is going to be some polishing on my part in the future. It shouldn't be too bad on these because they are interior parts, and I think I will give them a good coat of wax. Anyway I am excited to see my vision come to life.. WES

Didn't know Dakota Digital did analog looking gauges, too. The polished copper is amazing. Totally outside the box.

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Been a while since I posted but I do have an update. I have started cleaning up my 5.7 LS1 to be fitted in my Panel. Not a big update, but I should be starting to roll again with it...
