"doug"

I've finished Stephen's GT/CS (he's named it Doug).
It came out very nice, and he'll be here tomorrow to pick it up & drive it home (possibly through Lincoln, NE)

It has the perfect stance!

What’s next, red or black?

What did you do to the car? Was it a complete "from the ground up" restoration?

Also, I like the stance as well. What size wheels and tires did you use? # leaves in rear leaf springs? Do you know what the measurement is from the ground to the lip of the wheel well?

Thanks
James

@James 215/70/15 tires.

I'm thrilled to be reunited and can't wait hit open roads!
No more squeaking front end when I drive over a leaf!!

@ Arlie, are you or any others going to Lincoln arriving Thursday evening?? Looking for a supper time meet up with other owners.

James, 4 leafs, and front was roughly an inch to 1.5 lower than back. I measured on Monday but have forgotten. I think it was 26" on front and 27.5" on back.
