Thank you for correcting that for me. Six inches it will be.

Got front clip all back together on the Bobcat today. Will probably be getting a turbo 2.3 and srod 4speed installed. Also scored a 3.00 open 8" for free.

But back on topic!

I picked up an Explorer rear to steal the disc brakes off from for the Mustang. Got the caliper mounting brackets and calipers all cleaned up today and salvaged the complete brakeline setup from the rearend. Rotors are rusted badly so getting a new set then install everything.

Will be getting the 315's mounted tomorrow or Monday and doing mock up to check what all needs to be modified to make them fit this coming week.

Ignition box, tranny, and fuel system is all that is left after this coming week.

Very Nice!

If you feel like it make another build thread for the Bobcat. I'd like to see a pic with the front end back on. I know a 2.3 isn't a 460 but it would be cool just the same. Those little 2.3's can really haul the mail when done properly.

Been a long time since I made an update. So figured I would catch this thread up. I cleaned up the factory front brakes and bought an Explorer rearend to steal the disc brakes off from.

I also narrowed the rearend another inch per side so the 315's clear better. Also mini-tubbed the car. I picked up a four gallon fuelcell from ag460torino to mount in front of the radiator and bought a Mallory comp 250 to supply fuel. Trading the Bobcat for a trans, pressure washer, and a Supercoil.

so do you work at trick chassis? I live near by and I've seen your car sitting out in the driveway while you were working on it over on 6th street..
hey if you ever need a hand with anything I'm close by and I've built a few cars myself.
