Salt Lake 5-Window

Post by slowlylearning on Sun 27 Oct 2013, 11:49 pm

GOt this chopped TPB 5-winduh a while back, got the itch.

Heres what happened to the tyres.



Drilled some speed-holes on the back plate because fast!!



Got the bare framework for the front mount of the suspension, switched it to a not-as-long one for a more arrow-like effect.



This will be the stance more or less. Probably barely a mil higher in the front.



Heres where I grinded some material off the back of the speed-holes to get it looking thinner.



Gotta chop up the firewall to get that Dodge donk sitting a bit further back so the rocker covers dont hit, wish me luck lol.

Looks like a fun project. you have to build a push car/truck for it, and cover it with salt!

Smile Smile

Made a front with bits from a Prowler trailer and made disks for the front wheels instead of brakes. Also made a new front spring mount which you cant really see in the pics. Will do more on the chassy tomorrow.

Heading in the right direction mate.
Nice work with the nose, only thing I'd do though is shorten those front hubs a bit....so they're a bit closer to the chassis.

Thanks for the kind words tj Smile

Heres a couple updated piccies. Just been sanding and bogging, still more to come!

Shortened the mounting bits for the front wheels so theyre sucked in a bit too.





Sorry for the quality of this pic, still sorting out a setup to take piccies in.
