are you sure? It doesn't seem that 17 X 11" wide wheels with 5.5" b.s. would fit inside the fenders if the rear end was only narrowed 1" per side.

Re: Mali2ude going together for Power Tour 08

i guess i dont understand... whats the point of narrowing the rear if the wheels are only an inch wider than those that are put on it with a stock rear? guys throw 10s on there all the time. whats the difference with the 11s.

I think you just answered you own question. An 11" wide wheel is 1" wider than a 10" wide wheel. Probably isn't space for a 11" wide wheel. That's the point of narrowing the frame and widening the wheel wells.

It appears to me, the frame was narrowed 2" on each side. That's only from my non-technical viewing of the pictures on page 1 of this thread and the picture of the wheel wells in the picture above.

I didn't think you could get 10's on the rear of a 64 Chevelle.......... 68-later, no problem, but the early cars (64/65) had no wheelwell room.

Re: Mali2ude going together for Power Tour 08

been working on the exhaust until my glass shows up. Fortunately I can re-use everything Mark and Stainless Works built other than the down-pipe from the turbos. I wanted to get the exhaust on so I can find someone to fab my downpipes before I put the front sheetmetal on the car. Here's a few pics, I'll get better ones later. It's a snug fit around the upper control arms and coil springs.

Next up is the stainless tank and plumbing the engine.

Re: Mali2ude going together for Power Tour 08

well, I'm rolling now............... Got the tank cleaned up, looks almost like new. Just a nice lacquer thinner bath and complete scotchbrite rub down.

Re: Mali2ude going together for Power Tour 08

Looks SWEET! That tranny(?) pan sure looks low though or is it just the angle of the picture making it look low?

It's not as low as it looks, but lower than I like. It is going to be replaced with a stock pan.

I am not sure, it looks like a Rock Valley, but with some alterations to work with Marks narrowed frame rails.
