We did not wanted to alter any of the body lines by altering size of fenders
that are normally changed by other builds by adding huge bolt on bumps that just
look stupid nor slicing the quarters and bulging it that way as it ultimately
change the lines as well. We did however wanted to change some of the
smaller things on the car by either removing certain things like budging on the
C posts, re locating gas filler and getting rid of the push button on the rear
We also wanted to make few upgrades to the car and mainly they involved
suspension and brake upgrade. The 35 year old technology it may had been good at
the time however they had evolved over the years.
Suspension / Coil
overs / roll bar
In 2016 after not being completely happy nor really having liked the way
emergence / parking brake was made and as part of the engine rebuild / overhall
plus couple other items at same time. Decided was made to look into removing the
line lock that was originally setup during original rebuild with proper cable
driven brake. This meant putting the original handle back in and rest of the
cana lever transition and connection to the cable.
