Why oh why. A&L trailing arm.

Post by Synergy »

Why have I bought this :? I think it's because you guys kept snapping them up so I figure they must be a decent deal. I have no donor parts left to build it so I'm going to have to start all over again, this one could be a real long drawn out project :roll: , I think I might make it a runner.

Hey daryl, I noticed you've been selling a couple of these chassis kits lately. Do you still have some left or are you selling them as you find them........... somewhere?

I think the A&L is just too awesome not to build one.

Bad side is I decided to use my metal idlers and some Jammin Jay stuff I got coming in the tranny for it. The tranny will never see power so why oh why use the good stuff on something that will never get to use it? Just to say it's in there?

What a sad, confusing addiction this has become.

Addiction is the correct term

I've got a few ideas for it but as I am still on the learning curve I'm a little nervous about some of them, I might just try and pick up another donor car. Am I correct in thinking that this chassis does not accept a stealth :?:

you'd have to drill it for a stealth.

i would just buy all new parts. everything you need to build it is readily accessable. well, except for the nose plate. :wink:

I have been playing with the idea of making an adapter plate once I get my mill in later this Summer. It will raise the centerline of the out drives a bit. How would this affect the doggies?

Actually I'm not trying to be in the shade, I am in the shade - or is it dark...?

I need to do any inventory and see what I have a make some web pages.

I have the factory works 6 and 7 cell battery hold down, XX battery hold downs, RC10 front and rear towers, JRX front and rear towers, Ultima front and rear towers, Lots of Ultima Lethal Weapons, Mid trailing arm kits, Ultima Trailing arm kits and more....

I just do not have the energy to field all the questions some days after work...... :? Brain is burnt at the end of most days.
