I want to lift the Revell 1965 Chevy stepside but I don't know how.I also want to turn it into a dually. I know what to do with the fenders but what would I do to the wheels? I want it to be a four by four so I need help with that. Last thing. I want to scratch build a supercharger.

If it has leaf springs all around, they either need to be arched more, or you can add lift blocks between the axle tubes and the leaf springs.

I think you'll need dually style wheels no matter what.

What type of supercharger? It would be easier for us to suggest a kit which might have one, but if you wan to make one yourself, you can do that, too.

It has leaf springs in rear and a normal suspension set up in front. How do I lift the front? I will dig out my dad's supercharger and go off of thar.
