    Beautiful! Just curious, how did you decide on number 58?
    Love the meatballs and billboards.

    Thank you......... the car will be passed to my sons. I wanted the car number to hopefully have meaning to them. Five was my Dads favorite number and mine is Eight. It makes it special to me as he would have loved to help build it, I’m sure it will make it that much more special one day. I hope it does...

    Fantastic build. I love the colors, the billboard tire lettering and the meatballs. The racing theme is classic and your attention to detail is great. Well done.

    Inspirational! And a spoiler I hope. Mine is in paint right now and I’m going for the same look, minus the meatball. I just so hope mine turns out as good as yours. Nice work and enjoy all those proud miles in your future.

    Thank you..... and yours will be beautiful also. I’ll be following your build, color combo hits a soft spot!! Lol....

    Are you going with 15” wheels also?......if so what tires will you be running?

    Keep up the great work!!

    To tell the truth, I didn’t know 15” wheels could be done with IRS. I did the 17” with Wilwood brakes through FFR, but I really prefer the look of those billboards. It looks like you just used different brakes to get down to 15” wheels?

    I have the IRS. Gordon Levy makes a bracket/kit that will allow you to modify the rear knuckle assembly so you can fit the Wilwoods inside the 15” wheel. The parking brake will not fit but I placed mine on the driveshaft. Gordon also sells that setup.

    Look into it if interested in running 15”

    I did not know this. Fantastic news that Gordon sells a kit that opens the door to 15" with the newer IRS!!

    You did a stellar job with the build! My favorite colors too!

    Thank you...... appreciate the compliments. I want to thank Edward B again for all of his detailed threads as it allowed me to create a build more creative than I would have done if I was not following. Always willing to answer a question too....

    Can’t wait to start driving.....

    What a beautiful example of craftsmanship and attention to detail. But, you know they're never done. Time to get out and enjoy the rest of the driving season.
