Looking good, Mike, love the pictures and dialogue, should this end up on the tech page.
Cheers,

Good job Mike, although I must have forgotten to tell you to weld them from the back, not around the edges. A light grind to square up the welds will fix that, just do not go too heavy on the grinder.

Re; Our conversation today..... I still think the car would look great at the Nationals as a shell if it is not completed by then.

This is how Lance's (muzz67) 67 looked a few years back (note it has the tower wraps too ..... Laughing ) .....

As in plugs welds from the outside of the shock tower?? Ooops!! Mr. Green

Yeah still planning on sending it up the road to the Nationals regardless of what state it reaches...

It stops the towers cracking, which is a common issue on 67s.

The cracks can be very hard to see sometimes. I thought mine were perfectly ok until we sandblasted it all. Then I saw cracks on both towers...

I am about to do the same on "Noback" so I will then get it in the tech section. I will also make a few changes that will also be in line with the suspension changes I make to how the top A arm sits in the tower. It will also suit if someone is thinking of the "Shelby" drop.
