You don't happen to have any pictures of your car do you? I am trying to make sure I chose the right tire before we mount them on the wheels. Can't return the wheels once they have been mounted.

I agree my neck is hurting now this morning after watching the 2 Video's. Good to see you have it running and moving some earth. Question? Did you put a Standard Transmission in your ride? Based on what I could hear with the rev's it sounded like you did. Just curious. Whats next to be done? Paint? Couldn't really see if you completed your interior. Looks like your dash is painted and done.

your fuel tank???

Good looking wheels ProStreet.
I'm going to use American Racing wheels and Mickey Thompson tires.

I was wondering where you got your fuel tank? Was it custom made or purchased stock??? I need to get my tank configured. Thanks

The rear is 15X10 with mickey thompson 325/50R15 and the front is 15X3 skinny's with mickey thompson sportsman skinny tires (forget the size off the top of my head). The rear actually has plenty of room on the backside. The sidewall was just a hair too wide for the front side of the rear tire.

My thought was a 15X8 with 5.5" backspace in the back with maybe a 255/60R15 and the front a 15X4 with 1.75 backspace with a 175/80R15 tire.


Here it is with my camaro wheels and tires.












Here are the new wheels I got.








And the tire sizes I was thinking about.








What do you guys think about this?

lol!,

I'm so sorry Gents, I tried to get the best angle when I was holding the smartphone.

The Trans is out of a 2005 Dodge Viper Copperhead edition. So basically, a Tremec T56 mated to a SBC 355 via a McCleod bellhousing. The paint is coming after the electrical, but we're presently looking around for interior specialists and that can be a costly venture. Paint is already picked out. Think Great Gatsby Rolls yellow with a pearl coat to mirror a '60's West Coast show car. However, the dash color will stay the same, so as to be an accent piece. The interior will be a parchment white when all is said and finished. We want this car to be moving while it's parked!

Sorry I didnt get back sooner. We bought the car for $9000 the way it sits about 95% done. The tank was already in the car so I assumed it was part of the kit? Your guess is as good as mine.




Here is the rear wheels with a 295/50R15. I think these are going to work out very nicely. The only thing is the sidewall protrudes out the side maybe a 1/4" which I think I can live with to have a tire this big and wide on the car. Now I need to sand blast the drums and paint them so they don't look so bad through the wheels. This is just a test fit so i left the center cap off. Also the gap between the tire and wheel well closed up after I pressed down and got the suspension settled in its natural resting place.

Hi Guys,

Who makes a top for our '34 Roadsters? I called Sid Chavers and spoke to him about the Bop Top. At $2,200 plus additional costs for the material, it didn't appear to be the solution for me.

What else is out there and what did you guys that have the '34 Roadster do to resolve this problem?

Thanks,

Jay K.

I talked to a ididit tech guy last week about a column for a Street Beast 34 ford coupe. He told me they used to supply the columns for street beast (they were offered as an upgrade option on the street beast kits he said). He looked it up and told me part number 1120280010 was the column supplied with the street beast kit. I purchased this column and am running into troubles with the install.


In this picture you will see the DD shaft does not protrude past the firewall mounted swivel bearing. Can the outside of the column be cut down so the shaft will protrude through the firewall mount?


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps805de5cd.jpg



This picture shows the distance between the column shaft and the steering shaft and u joint.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps4fe11957.jpg



This picture shows the street beast supplied u joint is for a spline shaft and not a DD shaft.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps50cb3a81.jpg



Here is the old modified column that was in the car next to the ididit column


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps52696d3f.jpg


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psc4f4df8c.jpg



If we can get the column shaft to stick out through the firewall bearing all I would need to do is get a longer spline shaft and a new u joint with the correct DD end to fit the column. Can the outside of the column be cut about 2 so that the shaft can slide through the firewall bearing further or is there something at the bottom that would prevent cutting it? Have any of you guys installed an ididit column in one of these cars? Any pictures so I can see what you did to make it work?

Pro Street, it looks like we both purchased the same steering column. When I called ididit, and asked for the specific model number, they told me that they had sold several different types to Streetbeasts. See my build thread again. Our steering column barely makes it out of the firewall as well.

Found the steering wheel collar on page 11:

Your firewall swivel bearing is different than ours. I am kind of confused as to what was done here to get this like this?






And here is ours. The column is pushed all the way in as far as it can go here.
