Thanks to anyone who can help.
I'd look for forums where the owners of these cars hang or continue using the web search engines to see if there are others out there.
OR...
use ebaymotors to contact sellers of the SB speedster "C" and ask them for assistance or additional pictures. This is one method of learning. Perhaps someone is selling your exact car but a completed kit. You can always ask them for advice.

Good luck either way Man!

Jay you started on yours again. I shouldn't tell you this but I'm making fiberglass panels for my trunk right now.

LOL! To quote a friend "Who put a nickel in you?" Just yesterday a rod shop from WI. came out to look at the car and we should know this week whether or not we can work together. It's my hopes that they take the car and perform not only the repair work, but hang the doors, trunk and seal up the floor.

Will keep you all updated.

Cheers,

Jay K.

Well I hope it works out. Still have a lot of winter left to work on them. I like to go to Florida for a month to six weeks, Don't know if I will, but if I do, I don't have much time.

Well Jay thought you were in a snow drift some where, good to here you will be back in the shop.

My board is in the trunk, but I have been toying with moving it to another spot in the trunk. No room up front, I have wired over 200 street rods, and have put them back there before.

Jay - this is where my '31 is wired from. You do have to do some advance planning and decide how you want the wires to run. I thought I had - but of course was wrong by at least 50%. The battery is in the trunk and just behind the module. There is an access panel where I can reach the fuses as well as the sub always on panel:





THESE WIRES WERE REROUTED AFTER THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN

I love the mess after you were done, you take photos like me. No one can understand how much work you put into it without seeing stuff like that.

Guys,

Thank you for the photos. However, I wish more SB owners would post their photos.

Took ownership of the new replacement shell and will be able to paint the firewall this time instead of finding out after the fact!

WE'RE BACK IN BIZNESS!!

Jay - home wiring any car, regardless of brand/make, etc - is the same. When (IF??) I ever do another, there were 'lessons learned' and other directions I would take to hide wires

I would agree with Dave. I used the same board on many different cars the wires were run almost the same, I would come up with some better ways the more cars I did. Like I said on the other thread, it depends on where your board is, if you have to put it in the trunk, then more wires going under the floor or through a tube or in the roof.
As Dave said plan it out first, don't just start to put wires down. Don't work yourself into a rut.

Bob

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

SB 34 cab kit

i'm getting front rims, cragar ss 14" 3.3" back space but cragar tech says they've had issues clearing disk brakes (11"), and recommended using 15" if i can. has anyone done that with this kit car? if so, what size? what tire size makes this work? Body is not on the frame yet and want rims for a rolling chassis. any help is appreciated.

This thread was not started to give any crap about these kit's it was started to give help to people that had them. With that said, your question, I have 14" rims on mine and the tire I will be running, I can't think of the size tire, The rims are with a stock off set, they do need to go in a little,I will post a picture. Now the not so good news, I have widen my fenders 2" other wise the body would not sit down far enough for my liking. you said you have not mounted your body yet, I think you will find this out when you do. The cross member is too wide, the fender will come to the edge of the tire, so I don't know if 3.3" will be enough you will drop the edge over the tire, but I don't think you can turn it. Now mine is from 89, I don't know if they ever change that or not, I can go out and measure mine if you would like, just let me know.

Bob

The factory recommends 14" wheels for the Front of your car and 15" in the
Rear. That is what I used in my build during the early 90's. I ended up using American Racing Wheel Mags on my car. The set I used is not made anymore. If you look back in this thread you will see pictures of my car with this wheel combo. During the time of my build I used a '89 Mustang LX Rear end with drum brakes. The front are Disc. No problem with my 14" Wheels and Disc Brakes up front. Can't understand why you were told to use 15" up front. The '89 Mustang LX Rear End was equipped with 4 lug and was changed to a 5 lug setup

Doing a quick mock up with your wheels is really the only way you can tell. For instance, the 15's in the front of my car will clear the disc system with no problem, but those are smaller diameter rotors (Granada 11" with Wilwood calipers). The rears - oops. Those are the 11.75 Wilwood racing type and will NOT clear and then it got expensive

And as far as knocking SB - well if you need to, there's another very long thread for that as this one is for help - ONLY
