    Nothing in the back and a 1/4" spacer up front only to keep the inner wheel lip off the UCA at full lock.

    The rear axle is a stock width from a 69 Mustang

    One of the coolest, most unique, and stealthy classics I have ever seen. Great job!

    No rubbing...and the lips are rolled. Before I put the 1/4" spacers on the front rubbed on the UCA's at full lock.

    On Dark paint, the more chrome the better. Nice job by the way.

    I installed the rocker molding on the drivers side to see if I like it. What do you guys think? Should I leave it on or take it off? I also recently installed some Scat ProCar Rally seats.

    That car is absolutely gorgeous. The color is stunning. It's tough that I have nice black paint with activator, seems late to change my mind but your car makes me want to!

    Geese it looks good both ways, glad i dont have to make that decision. If it were my car i could go either way, On the one hand i like the look with it on, and i also like the look with it off. Either way you go, the car is amazing, I'm sure that these pictures do not do it justice. I love it.

    It looks good either way. The car looks more "serious" without it if that makes any sense.

    Well it's what matters to you that matters the most. But since you asked, I think the car looks cleaner and more hot rod without it.
