        Not much to report. test fix new tail lights, Bout has his work cut out for him to make them look like they fit. Welded the spring perches after getting the pinion angle correct. Made a new brake line from the distribution block to the back. I'll snap a few pictures and post later. Truth be told, work, weather, farm and tenant's have been keeping me really busy.

            Hey there - I dig the lowered look.
            So- I'm curious- where did you get the drop spindles and what size rims/tires you running up front?
            I have a 67 Dart, not as beefy as yours( I still have the Slant plus a Super Six in the garage) but have swapped the stock rear for a 8 3/4, 323, converted the front brakes to power disc and tubular control arms from Year One/CPP, have 15x7 cop wheels all around with 205/60/15's up front, 235/60/15s and out back but when I had it in the garage for a front end alignment they said I could not really go any lower due to bump stops. Can I circumvent the bump stop issue by installing drop spindles?

              Hello Rod, I’m using a HDK front suspension that allows me a few choices. I’m not using the drop spindles because it was to low. PM Hemidenny on this site and he may be able to help.

                  No worries mate........soda blasting a car would be the least of his worries if he lived down under.

                        1 1/2 years later this thread comes back to life. Work, family, farm and life in general got in the way of the Dart. The body shop has had it for 15 months but it is coming together.

                            Also I’m changing the interior color from black to pearl white and maybe a white tail stripe.
