Yeller Truck Hi 496,
I built my own brackets for the rear end. the wheel base ended up 26 5/8 inches longer than the original Corvette so I had to extend the stabilizer which is the rear transmission mount. The front clip was cut at the point where the frames matched and then bolted and welded it in place. I moved the front wheel center line back 1 1/2 inches because it looked better in the wheel wells and had no problem with tire to fender rub. building the new firewall bump was the biggest chore.

YES. that wood on the outside of the box (red mahogany)

S10xGN You could go to the local print shop and have them cut you a piece of vinyl in your choice of color, then "wrap" the spring. Prolly less than $10 for that and it's easily removable...

OneMoreTime I think that is one of those want to ideas that may not be the best idea on further reflection..If you must then paint it with a good epoxy primer and then paint to match the truck..We paint carbon fiber and fiberglass all the time and I have had paint hold on steel springs..subject to the regular road rash of course..

Transverse Spring Color Coating

I have been told to be careful with the type of color coating that I put on the transverse spring on my Corvette suspension. is this true? It is a composit material and I do not want to weaken it. I would like to match the color of the truck if at all posible.
