Lookin good!
I assume there's room for the column by that 90 degree brake bracket--the pic is deceiving. Whose bracket is that?

It will be extremely close. I may have to make my brackets to move it to the side a little and make adjustments to the pedal arm itself. I got the bracket off of the FleaBay close to 2 years ago and cannot remember who it was from.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Did a little something different. I faux boxed the frame to house all the wires and lines. They will be approx 1 1/8 off the frame. Definitely makes it look a little different. I bead-rolled and dimple-died them for a little extra fancy.

Awesome choice of wheels! Chassis is looking great too. I have been dead set on Racelines, I sure hope they don't screw up on mine when I'm ready to order.....

Hey buddy! Thank you, so much happier with my new choice. Raceline wasn't much help through the whole process, everytime there tried to fix something they made it worse. I would save the extra 400 to 500 and step up to a Boyd. Totally worth it in the end.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Hoping there are no clearance issues. I may have to cut a little more out of the side to make sure. There needs to be about 1.5 inches of clearance on each side.

I love the new choice in wheels. I had a very similar problem with billet specialties but I was so frustrated I gave up on billet wheels all together!

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

Trying to figure out how to get this 90 degree hydroboost set up correctly. Seems to be off center and probably needs to have the arm cut and welded in a new position. Anyone got pics??

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

There's an old build thread that has one installed, but it will take me some time to dig it out. In the meantime here is the thread where Scott's showed an install after they made them available for sale:

1. Make 2 flat plate brackets.

2. weld a piece of tubing in between.

3. bolt to pedal assembly

4. tack in place

5. unbolt pedal assembly and weld in.

If these pedals were ShamWows they'd sell themselves, LOL. Seriously though, I think he had mayb e an hour and a half in the install plus making the brackets.

Re: Buried to Bagged 1972 2wd

I have noticed that alot of Guy's are going the Hydraboost direction.
(I'm NOT telling anyone how to build their rig) but in my personal experience I had a Hdraboost system go out while driving and you not only lose you Brakes but your Steering as well at the same time! It was the scariest thing I've had happen in along time. JMO Guys! I wouldn't want to see anyone get hurt or worse.
