        did you add any wheel well width? It didn't look like it from the pics. Looking really good, need more pictures!!

            stock tubs. Will add width outside the quarters....but the tires should be about even with the sides of the car. This is a crude race car, not a narrowed rearend high dollar rig.

                    It's not as big as it looks.

                    Thanks!

                      what gauge steel did you use in the floors and - how did you end up forming the frame rail "filler" pieces?

                        20 gauge for the floor panels and rails. It took me about 10 minutes per side to bend up the rails...used the 3/4 x 3" x 12" press plates off my press, the vise, some clamps, body hammer, and the floor. Total improvisation.

                          He is a tall lanky guy. If he could fold himself in half, he could sleep back there no problem. But, as nice and near flat as that floor is, Jim could leave out the passenger seat and have a nice bed on that side.

                              I see the car sitting in the pits under a light in the middle of the night, the trunk is ajar with his head sticking out the back and a foot out each door window
