The interior side panels will be replaced by the new panels that represented the inner body/door structure

The tyre/rim combination is only for a mockup to see the stance

Michael , that is very nice work !

I am looking forward to following your progress ; excellent modifications so far :) .

I am not certain if that Ford 9 inch axle would hold-up to the power output of that 427 Cammer . It is not a very popular choice for customisers and race cars :lol: .

Say , are those brake pistons that you are using to prop-up your kit ?
