Thanks. Yes. Gears are going back to Libert for overhaul. Not sure if just going back with pro shift rings or maybe upgrade to face plate. Haven't talked to them yet on price difference. Going to also put on a Passon aluminum case, tailhousing and side cover.

I have red and yellow LED bulbs that I was going to use for a street project, but I think I will install them in the Cuda. They are the old 1157 style, so I could put the high elements on during the day. Should look cool.

I could use some input for front bumper alignment. Anyone have any front end shots of their cars? My Unlimited Fiberglass bumper never really fit right. I don't know if the bumper is supposed to overlap the lower part of the grill and the valance at the same time. The angle of the bumper never really matched the angle of the front of the car. The center of the bumper is tight against the car, but the ends droop and are wide from the fenders. Might be time for a replacement. Any recommendations?

Today's project. The wheelie bar brackets were welded on at a slightly wrong angle. By the time I got the pinion angle right, the bars were only an inch or two off the ground. Tightening the adjusters made the bars look like a bow and arrow. Tires being fairly worn and poor shock adjustments, made them slap so hard, you could see smoke on the 3-4 shift. Oh well, didn't need those anyway.
So, I modified the brackets and got the adjustments right. Axle is on a 15 3/4" centerline height. Housing is level. Wheelie bars are 8" off the ground with 2" of adjuster threads showing.

Talked to Josh at Smith Racecraft today. Ordered custom cut Triple Adjustable Ladder bars, diagonal link and crossmember kit. Great guys. Gave me a great price. Not sure if they will be in time to go under the Christmas tree. Oh well. Pics to follow.

Got metering blocks, throttle plates, axle cover coming in for Christmas. Axle cover is Strange piece in black. My question is: do I paint my rear housing in black or in silver? I thought that the silver contrast would look different. Will be painting the ladder bars black. Rear shocks for now are Koni (red) but will probably be upgrading to Summit or QA1 aluminum pieces. Frame rails, springs will be black.

I'd paint the rear black. Check w/ Viking for shocks.

Anything welded or known to crack, silver or white
off color lateral lines along things that twist - tail shaft/diff tubes

Easier to spot issues, may save $$ and time

I think satin black looks great on most everything underneath a car.

Either way, silver or black, I was going to clear coat it afterwards. Lighter colors to shows early signs of fatigue sounds like a good idea. But who really checks stuff like that. If it cracks, I'll find out on the next run. Black is always a killer look, but everyone and their brother has it painted black. First, I'll put the 4.10's in and clean the housing. Maybe purple???

Back to the axle bearing issue. Will probably be upgrading to rear disc brakes. That means the drum brake backing plates will be removed, taking .100" of motion out of the equation. Should fix the issue. My question is, where does the Wildwood rear brake caliper bracket attach to the housing flange? From the back or front of the flange. If it attaches from the front (axle shaft side) I'm guessing that I will have to grind the drive studs pretty short. Does anyone have a pic of the bracket on their rear axle?
