    Got the seat out and did some power washing just to get the dried mud and grim off.

    Well, I have a additional question for you? Did you tighten everything before you put it on the ground? If so that is going to bind and wont let it flex out. Just a thought.

    Did you torque it before setting on all four or after?

    I see where you’re going. It was while we were building it, even before it had body or engine installed.

    I think we did around 70lbs. What torque would you suggest?

    I'm not being real clear. I would lift it off the ground, loosen the shackle bolts, then set back on the ground and see if the shackles relax to the proper angles. Then tighten and torque the bolts.

    When I did my springs on my 71 I torqued the shackles while in the air, and it was the same way.

    In order to get the Rocky Road spring shackle mounts on the front, I will have to redo the steering box. Wish I had a plasma cutter...

    Diamond plate is off, not too bad under there. You can see the original color.
    Will have to cut out and weld up some holes on the rear panels.

    Got the heater and blower out, so I can start to fab up the hanging pedal and master cylinder.

    Working on the the hanging brake pedal...lots of trial and error....This is looking pretty good, will have to do a little pedal adjustments. Not to worry, that is just some thin scrap I had, to play with, will have correct plate cut, once I get it where I want it.

    I am going to redo the accelerator pedal as well..
