A little more progress....

Went to my friends shop and narrowed up the HP44 to EB width





Started building the radius arms



Slotted the DOM



All tacked together, built in a little caster and some angle for tire clearance.

Nice, I like the look of the radius arms. How are you going to attach them on the other end?

Are you planning to twin-stick the NP205? I'm also building a 71 (just started) but I'm going EFI 351w, c6, np205. My 205 had an easy half inch of dirt/grease caked onto it and the speedo opening hadn't been plugged so I went through it and chose to do the twin stick option. I think it'll be worth the extra 15 minutes of work.

Also, who blasted your tub?

As of right now I am planning on twin sticking the 205, Chuck @ Shoreline blasting did the tub.


I shortened the arms up some, right now they are 12-14" longer than stock just by looking at it.

I ended up having to rework them a little, had only about 1* of caster, now it looks like I have about 5.
