The bags in the front are slam specialties for an extra inch and minimal ballooning.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Nice looking build, the form, fit and finish are all outstanding . . . nice work! I noticed in one of your earlier pictures (posting #9) the engine block casting numbers, is your engine a "tall deck"? If so, who's pistons are you using and what's the compression ratio and dome shape? Thanks!

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Yes and no. I'm eager and ready to go but at the mercy of a local chrome shops turn around tims. Everything on it is polished and chromed so it takes a while. In the mean time I've been tinkering with a 64 Lincoln but as soon as I get my oil pan back its game time. Not to mention keeping the CRF in prime time.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Shock set up. Shots of the headlights I'm going to use. They have an incorporated turn signal.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

i put a set very similar into my 71. You have to modify the headlight bucket a little bit because the turn signal section gets in the way. (Although I'm sure you already knew it)
