thanks for the welcome. No leather just crappy cloth now. I am thinking mint green with bean green 1/4 inch pin stripes inside and pearl white paint with twin chocolate pinstriping on the outside.

I think what you are referring to are high coils.But who in the hell puts 22's on a legend this is unheard of.You are about to kill your tranny and suspension all in the same breath.I'd reconsider that if it were me.Now as for the wood spacers I'm a Carpenter and I could fashion you a pair out of Cedar.PM me if your interested:rof l: :r ofl:

Its S.V.R. HERPS. as in Shaker Valley Reptiles Herpotologists. Wood spacers would not do good as they bolt between the body and the strut kinda like lift blocks between the axle and leaf springs on a truck. Thanks for the offer though. I am turning some out of steel on the lathe as we speak. It only takes two hours each then i have to mill them for the bolt sockets and center brace.

Thats pretty cool you have access to a lathe...

you might be able to make some really cool parts later on. Who does your custom work?

I own my own lathe and milling machine and interior sewing maching amongst many other shop tools. I do everything myself except for the complex paint due to my color blindness and I also dont do the major machining protions of the engine (boring, magnaflux, decking) I havent gotten those tools yet. My next test of ability is to try my hand at totally molding/forming my own body kit out of fiberglass. I like one off designs.

Big shoes aren't my thing either, but those look half decent. Props to you for putting up with all the B.S. here. One thing you'll find on this site is that us folks don't tolerate much "rice," which you'll have to admit, 22" rims strikes the rice chord at first. But, again, those look decent.

Also, props on doing all the lathing and material work on your own. I want more better quality pictures of this car PLEASE! Welcome to the forum!

I happen to like the dueces on the sedan. I dont think a coupe could pull it off, but welcome. And dont mind the haters.
