looks really good. gotta get those back tires in a bit. on the 1;1 they are flush with the fender.  I dont know how they work the suspension magic but mine is very low and tires sit right there and now matter how hard you push it they do not rub. handles nice too. like its on rails

Hey Fred, good to hear from you again. I do appreciate your advice (being that you own one.) The wheels I chose for this build are a little wider than the originals so they hit the inner wheelwell if they are pushed in too much. It was an unfortunate issue with changing to the aftermarket wheels. Which are now HOK Galaxy Gray......too much bling before!
 
New pics soon.

Could you trim the back some where you won't see it. They really don't put alot of tire on these cars. That's how they get them low and fit 20s I think

Ken, could you put a pic up for me of the rear wheel in the wheel well from the bottom. like that upside down chassis shot but with the rear wheel on. I think I have a solution to get the wheel tucked without any chassis mods.

 

btw here is my dad in our 40th

Another option is to clear out a space on those tubs, like the lowrider do, to tuck their wheels.

Yep this is what I was thinking of doing. It will be the back wall of the rear wheelwells that has to go.

I think I have a solution to your wheel problem without cutting the detailed chassis.  post a pic of a rear wheel please

Ok. Measure how much the wheel sticks out past the fender, let's say it's 3mm. Take tire off rim and cut that 3 mm off the back of it. Then cut same 3 mm out of tire but start in from sidewall. Once you have that strip out of tire put it all back together. THEN nip the same 3mm off rear axle ends and drill the wheel mount holes deeper to make up what you cut off

What all that did was move in wheels 3mm without major wheel well surgery. It sounds like alot of work but it's not and it will nail the look. I do this lots. And by working on inside edge of wheel you won't notice it on finished car

Make sense?

I see what you mean by your explanation, and it will work for sure, but if I were to section out and remove the top of the back wall of the wheelwell I think I can get the tire to clear and move in the 3mm I need. Should be pretty unnoticeable too. Will post a shot of it with the wheels mounted in the new configuration when done. Thanks Fred.

Bingo, I had thought cutting the wheel. Yet I think cutting the tub part is 100% better.

Now go gets some paint on that bad boy, or girl.
