    The wheels!
    Looks to me like you got yourself a roller!
    Always cool to see the car on the wheels for the first time

    Lol! John give me a break! I know the tube on the axle is missing and the lock nuts on the Panhard rod are not secure.

    By the way how do one knows that the Panhard and upper link are well adjusted??

    When at final ride height the panhard bar should be adjusted so that it is parallel with the axle tube/ground and the axle is centered. The upper link adjustment will be a part of setting the pinion angle.

    Looks like where I want to be in a week or two once some more parts arrive. Very exciting to make it a roller. I will have to Romberg this thread for later for reference. Todd WI
