How does the DSE mini tubs allow larger wheels and tires? I thought the restriction for more rear offset was the leaf springs. Are the springs relocated?

He's using the DSE rear suspension as well. Its what they call a Quadralink set up. It does away with the old leaf springs. Check out the link below.

Fixing the door gap



Block sanded and ready for more primer



Two coats of SPI epoxy



DSE parts came in except the rear housing. Now we just need to find the time to install all these cool parts.

Plus 1 to the above post. It's like car porn

Rusty. How do you sort dented up front frame rails where the floors are perfect and the owner would rather not change rails as the car is quite nice and original?

I've heard it suggested to open them up along the edge

Cheers. Peter
