so will you have to use spacers on your front wheels to clear the calipers now? Just asking because I rebuilding a 85 front toyota axle for my sammy and I was told that if I go with vented rotos and 86-95 calipers that I will need wheel spacers.
ok so a little bit more today .. thank hevens , a weekend is comming , but I really want to get the engine secured and up off of the floor .
so .. yanked it off again , and started to work on cutting the stock mounts off .
and finally both sides cut off .
started to "open up" the motor mount side , mounts a bit .. as i'm using the original top side of the frame mounts . They are just a "hair" off , so they need to be enlarged .
and finally (for today)
I decided to put on the front clip , and strip it , so I will be able to check for clearances ..
so far .. firewall looks good .. I dont even think I will have any "modifications" .. but , I duno just yet , just acording to my measurements "knock on wood"
one thing I did notice though .. I think the engine is going to sit up very high .. like 5" or so .. not shure yet what i think about that ?
Question about POR-15 and frames. I have used POR-15 before and I am using it on a current project as well (for small parts). I considered using it on the frame but I am not sure how to get really good coverage inside the frame rails and other hard to reach areas and how to get multiple coats in there as well? How have you dealt with that on previous frames?
