    Any of you that have a 67 -69 barracuda fastback & have it mini tubed what did you do about the large metal interior piece beside the wheel wells ? It would be nice once that you have moved the inner wheel well over to the frame to still be able to use that interior piece.

    Most just cut out the shape of the wheel house in them and use some edge guard

    I made new ones out of the same 12 ga. I made the tubs from. Welded them in, it keeps the inner panel from oil canning

    I am thinking of running a 17x 8 17x 8.5 rim on the rear. Ill have to see maybe I wont have to fully mini tub it. I kind of like the wheel & tire to be tucked under.

    I'm running 275/40/18 on a 18x9 rim with only a offset shackle kit and rolled fender lip. I have about 3/8" between the back of the tire and the spring pack and about 5/8" between the face of the tire and the body. With the short/stiff sidewall its plenty of clearance
