Re: Scared to cut
hehe, dont worry Tony, as it stands, im not even street legal [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img], so i wont be doing any susp mods or tires changes for a while.
As for the fenders.......
Norm, a body lift does have a ton of disadvantages, but for some reason, i still dont regret getting mine. If you put a 3" b.l. on, i cant see you having any clearance issues. (assume 3" lift, and that your tire will only go further up into the fenderwell by 2 inches). And i cant see it affecting your center of gravity all that much, since all the super-heavy parts (engine, tranny, etc)wont be lifted. But i dont wanna go into the whole good/bad thing about body lifts, cause we'd all be carrying on for the rest of the week. (and thats not the point of this thread, anyway)
But i always wondered.....if you do cut the fenders out, cant you just move the entire plastc fenderwell up? Granted youd have to move alot of stuff, but on a carbed truck, there cant be that much on there. Especially not as much as the later model efi's. In the rear, i dont think youd have to do much of anything to finish it and make it look good.
