No I didn't.... But I really don't know what the weight is on that car.... I'm Guessing close to 4000lbs I'm sure..... So If it can handle the weight of that car I'm sure They are strong enough..Believe me !!!! I will put them through the test !!!!

They looked to be 1-1/4'' outside to outside...

I just looked them up... Look to weigh around 3500 lbs..

Thanks... I want to start working on the c-cab or my Coupe so bad.... But everything's been on hold for now with my wife down.... She's about to start back at work soon..... Just trying to stay a float for now..... Things are tough all over for everyone.... But it will come around.... Can't lose faith at this point.... This c-cab should have been done by now.....

You're mixing mathmatics here.
1.61x is the golden ratio or "phi" not Pi (which is 3.14x). Supposedly the Parthenon and many other historical rectangular things are based on this principal (including some historical US monuments, the Mona Lisa and the Great Pyramid). Devise a rectangle that can be split into unequal halves, one half being a perfect square, and the other half being proportional to the entire rectangle. That is the golden rectangle. It's interesting, and can be useful for things with 90* corners and the Pentastar logo.

Sorry;

Ive been around the engineers too long I think.

There's a theory that says if you build a structure that uses the ratio of phi ("fi")1.61:1; it will be better looking. People cite this because several of the most famous buildings, songs, and paintings use this 'golden ratio'.

my favorite ratio was always 36-24-36 but whatever LOL

You do amazing work, your eye for proportion, lines and the ability to take something so complicated and strip it down and it still looks finished...is impressive. Its guys like you and Dewey that show what hot rodding is all about.
