I have always loved the sleeper look. I hope you will be able to come up with a rim tire combination that won't give away the car so much.

Which brings the question do they make a small tire that is sticky enough to hook up?

Whoever built that car is a god. My build will somewhat less "showworthy".

As far as seating, yes. I will have more room on the sides than this ride but it will be tight.

I can't make the 12" tire work with the V8 and the 9 inch. It will be somewhat of a pro-street look with the fatties in the back.

I seperated the rear axle tonight. No problem at all getting the tubes out of the center housing. I will be cutting the tubes down in the next few days and sending the axle shafts out to Moser's when I get a few bucks.

Sorry for the cell phone pics.

Cleaning up the old mounts and getting it ready.



Getting ready to pop the tube.



After popping the tube using a slide hammer.



The gutted housing.
