Rear Wheels and Tires

 

When I mounted the wheels and tires with the new rear disk brake kit there was not enough room for the caliber in the wheel.  A set of 2″ spacers with 5X5″ bolt pattern solved this problem.  I think that the additional rear track width will put the tires outside of the rear fenders but I was expecting that and will add to the old school look with a radius cut in the new fiberglass fenders that I will order to replace the orginal all steel fenders.  I will remove and save the fenders off of the body before I do a test fit of the body on the frame.

I will have all of the welds on the frame suspension mounts and rear end housing finished and flip the frame back to check the rear shackle and rear end pinon angles and then move on to the ladder bars and front suspension.
