View Full Version : New ride height
02-11-2007, 05:12 PM
I finally got the car outside after adjusting the ride height on the QA1's. Just about finished the AAW update harness. Wow...that's abit of work. Also installed RaaMat through-out the entire floor and will cover in BXT foam just before we head off to upholstery.
Anyone know who offers a nice 1 pc bumper? I have the 3pc and really don't like it much with the car lowered.
There's a damn tree in my way from getting the angles I wanted to take the pics from!!! I told her I wanted to cut that tree down!

Your car looks great! I wouldn't cut the tree down, just push the car forward a bit! :)

Looks real nice. Looks like a nice power plant too! Getting ready to do my AAW harness, you're scarin me. How long did it take you? Was it easy as far as instruction? Phil...

Once you get the block mounted and dash harness in...it starts to get a little easier for a stocker. I had alot of extras. Vintage air and MSD, FAST XFI, PCS Trans controller, power windows on the accesory harness!
I went to the local Tweeter audio/video store yesterday. I'm a music junkie while I'm cruizin. I found a neat Alpine head unit that'll link up to the iPOD and allow you to scan through and play directly on the head unit and it's super fast. That kinda stuff has really come down in price. I also added 6 1/2" component speakers up front, 6 1/2"s in the rear deck and twin 10" subs in the trunk w/ twin amps! I'm no audiophile but, it should rock out pretty nicely.

Nice car man, is that a twin turbo setup I can spy under the hood? Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun to drive once she's finished!!

I should say you'll be very pleased with that set up, it's very similar to what i've got in my daily driver BMW (Alpine head unit, mids + tweets in the front, 5 1/4" components in the rear, twin Rockford 12" subs in the boot/trunk plus an Alpine 4 channel amp and a Kenwood mono amp for the subs, it'll give you a massage on the back seat from the bass!! lol It certainly makes the drive to and from the office more enjoyable! :D

That 55 is coming along. I too would like to see the engine area. Looks good.

I like it a lot. (in my best Jim Carey 'dumb and dumber' voice.)
Danchuk has one-piece front bumpers for 55's.
# 14157 $450
They are new, just started makin 'em suposedly.
I also "like it a lot"
SWEET!!!, it's going to be a nice ride...
My favorite part is the evil twins mounted in the engine compartment...

The ride height is spot on! She looks BAD!!!!!!
Check with Danchuk. They are now selling the one piece front bumpers.

Here's a few additional pics....still in fab/mockup.

Awesome! What are you going to use for a belt/pulley system?
02-12-2007, 05:46 PM
I picked up some traditional aluminum pulleis w/ V-belts.

Duce That 55 is Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!
It reminds me of my 56 I used to race in the late 70s. I love the Big Block and twin turbos setup.

Sweet, Sweet, Sweet Dennis!! :cool: I can't wait to see it finished. Are you planning on making some passes with it when it's done?

That car Loooks Really Wild !

I'm sure we'll make it down atleast once. I'll be sure to find the appropriate exit on the return road. The lack of a bar/cage, SFI harness or clothing will likely not go over very well with track officials. It's a street car ;)

Goodness! That will... nevermind.. can't say it. :D Tee hee hee.

One piece, yes, but not a smoothie :(
