The brake system is 100% I used a early bus master cylinder with the residual pressure valve removed for disc brakes.

I should be able to drive it tonight after a gas tank and battery install.

I had the same thought Pete! Them rear wheel bearings won't be getting much oil [-( , but it looks so good! MMMMMMM, MMMMMMM for extreme camber in the rear! =D> =D> =D>

congrats Franz!

He's at a place where he can knock out anything that pops up from being that low pretty quickly, I'm sure. Would be a different story for most of the rest of us.

Slam away, Franz!

My power to camber ratio is pretty good.

Plus, the suspension won't go much lower. Wink Those 205/70 tires are pretty much rubbing the top.
