Progress with the back, while I wait for rear to come in
We have room for a good size tire now...18" section width will fit in there.

After some careful measuring I tacked on the 4 link brackets and set the rear....it looks I may have to twist the housing to point up a little. I'll do that once the motor/ and trans is set...axle centerline and crank centerline are just about level at this point

In an effort to move forward after working on the rear, I started on the cage.
The bends came out good today miming and fitting now. After the cage work, I will move on to the strut towers and front end64 Fairlane restoration/ mods - Page 2 6b583810

More cage updates. The door bars were a real chore, both were different, I also had to deal with the body itself being different on both sides and not square at all. 1964 Ford tolerances were loose!

More updates. The aje crossmember has motor mounts that lean back 6 degrees. It’s Not optimal for my situation so I will go with motor plates.

More forward progress
I made the tubs out of rolled steel
I hope that o devise some kind of fuel cell mount and parachute mount with the tubing in the rear
The wheel wells were stretched only 3 inches for the relatively small tires I will be using
