So I stopped by the shop again today to approve the fenders...

I have to say, they exceeded my expectations! I can now fit a larger tire no problemo in the rear We are going to roll the front fenders too for room. I should even be able to run a shorter shock and get the car REALLY low if I wanted to!

Pics from today:






Now here is the opposite side, which isn't complete yet, but it gives you an idea of the work that they are doing to the car.





I should be taking the car home next weekend.

Does anyone in the Sacramento area have a spare set of 4x140 wheels/tires I can borrow?

I have to give these wheels back to subjunkies so he can give them back to Jibs next weekend, and the guys at Roseville Rod volunteered to drop the car off at my house (since I'm close by) but they'd like to just roll it in rather than take the car back apart. I went to the pick n' pulls in the area, and there were some OK wheels but not many usable tires...

Just to show you guys, heres a pic I just made showing the shock travel with the new fenders:



Now since shocks work best in the MIDDLE of their travel length, i'm thinking now maybe I should run a shorter rear shock, like maybe one that has a .5"-1" shorter minimum height?

I might risk rubbing the tire over bumps and such, but it might be able to sit lower and be in the "proper" range. What do you think?

Judging by the pictures, running a shorter shock would really look great. Just make sure you get the right bump stops and valving and i think you'll be ok.

The shocks for this style suspension are just basic shock absorbers, everything is built in. You just buy a shock and install it

My boyfriend told me about this build. Looks like it has come a long way, and a lot is still to be done. Best of luck.

WOW fenders look great! I love subtle tweaks like that... they don't totally disrupt the car's overall looks, I think hardly anybody would ever notice... but it's a nice update and it will make it look that much meaner Great progress so far!

Kos,

I haven't been able to read the WHOLE thread, but, i've been following here and there... What do the guys at Roseville think about working on an import?? I see 99.99% classic domestic iron... How do they feel about bringing this wonderful OS import back to life?? Are they really down, or are they just doing another job??

They've never worked on an import before, but some of them have owned Datsuns and such in the past, so they are cool with it.

Plus, with the economy, they are glad to take in any business they can right now. I've even refered a couple other folks (not import owners though) to them.

Import or not, it's still a classic. This isn't exactly putting a lambo door kit on an 88 prelude and hacking in some supra tail lights!
