thnx ! , just got rid of the original mounts and made a new pin higher up :)
didnt bother to change the whole chassis becuase thisa was already partially build when i got it .. so i just make higer mounted pins for the wheels

it could sit way lower but then you would have to open op de part under the hood and make whole new wells

Wow, great build.  I've got a '65 sitting on the shelf that I was needing some inspiration.  I think it's safe to say I found it here.

This is a mean looking truck ;)

Great wheel choice, but I also liked the big five spokes you had mocked up on page one... Which kit were those from?

Makes me want to get the 65 Stepside and do something similar :D

Enjoy the Cobra, BTW, it's a great kit also...
