Re: Ant b's 412 variant.

Re: 73’ fastback

love the fasty - nice to see the car lowered on BBS rims (properly). I am going to fit a set of American Racing Torque Thrusts to my square and need to fit type 1 beam and narrow the rear arms - all to get the right offset. Car looks properly solid and pretty standard - nice job hows the air ride us...

Re: Shocks

sounds like you need to move the inner and outer splines to get a little more lift and reduce the grub screw extension - then youll have some wiggle room when levelling the car out. There is a diagram online that tells you how many inner and outer splines are needed to get lift / drop -

Re: 1971 FI notch won’t run

I swapped from FI to carbs (40mm dellortos) because of engine size being too much for stock FI system. But if I had left it 1600 I would definitely get that FI system sorted - nothing better when running as intended...good luck sorting

Re: '67 Square continued.....

Maybe slightly loosen the mounts and space top mount a few mm? If you tightened everything with the motor on a jack maybe its worth a try. As long as you use 10.9 grade fasteners you can add spacers and avoid messing about shortening the manifolds that are super-short as it is...

Re: Bullet front Indicator Wiring Help

you’ll need twin filament US spec housings if you want to retain the running lights plus indicators - or just write them for indicators using the wiring diagram above - running lights look cool though...
