Was able to get a little bench time in today on the Shelby and I was able to finish painting and attaching the rear sway bar to the axle and I also finished up plumbing the rear brake hard lines and securing them to the rear axle. I also started on the front assembly of the a arms and spindles to make sure everything was setting even with the wheels attached and to see where I would be running the front brake hard lines and also to see where I will run the brake hoses from the calipers to the scratch built brake line brackets. I ended up scratch building two small fittings to attach the soft brake lines that run from the calipers to the brake line bracket that is attached to the frame then the hard line will run from the bracket to the frame rail and up to the firewall. Pictures coming soon ! Trying to get her down for NNL West
The car and film crew have been spotted in various places here in the valley this past week or so and from what I have heard through the grape vine that they are filming number 4 with Christoper Lloyd so only time will tell if it is number 4.
Hello Everyone ! I have finally found a little time to get some bench time in on the Shelby which is that I have finished all the brake line junctions and I also had to shorten the drive shaft a bit also so I cut off the u joints and measured the length I needed for the center and then pinned the joints to the new shaft . I also decided to add a sway bar to the rear suspension so I went to the parts box and modified one from a late Shelby Mustang but it needs to be cleaned up a bit before paint as does the drive shaft.
