Hi Dave

We did not do anything to the front coils they are what was in the car, the wheel alignment was way off and when set correct it also lowered the front. We just lowered the rear of the car.
The big issue is the collectors hang real low, to be honest i am considering fitting some standard cast manifolds as the engine is basically stock and then i could leave the car at the height it is which looks real good.
The other option is to do what you advised earlier in the thread about a new set of HQ springs to raise the car, but as i said change the pipes and it can look as it is in the photo's.

Hi Rowan

Nice to meet you yesterday, Elky looks great. I like the idea of white stripes.

The casting numbers don't make sense for a chevelle (maybe mid 70s) but they look like the right shape
Good luck

It turned out a sweet cruiser but not really wanted i wanted for a tow anywhere rig. ( I should of thought this through before i bought the elky). I have replaced it with a Silverado and thus it needs to go.
Its so hard to sell an american car at the moment, there is heaps on the market!

Thanks Nate! It was plain white and i stuck on some orange vinyle stripes to break it up. Made a big difference.

Hey Nate: I think you should buy the el camino so you have a cruiser till the big girl is finished
