i suppose this kind of mounting the adi ar-446 is as easy as anything.

it is looking like work is going to interfere with me leaving town.
my next opportunity to run won't be until april(mid).
i think that will be better for my original "planning" anyway.
i have the time for some more little changes before then.
i have another antenna showing up any day that i can mount and tune, a cb radio to change out, and some channel iron that could help me get the rest of the body lift i wanted
way back when.
suzi could show some more leg soon.
i have pulled the rear bumper off to access the rear mount points(body studs) and you can see how i gained 1 1/8" of lift before.
[Linked Image]
i took out the headlight assemblies for the front mounts(bolts-easy).
[Linked Image]
this is what the mid body mounts look like(body studs).
[Linked Image]
i am disconnecting stuff to be able to lift the body off the chassis, like the gas fill thing....
[Linked Image]
i think i can.
i wanted a 2" body lift.

yeah- she will really be strutting her stuff if i can pull this off.
i have ignored a little tire rubbing here and there. this will help.
i don't want to have to monkey with extending shifters and stuff, but think another inch up wouldn't be too much.
re:radio mounting.
zip ties are probably too easy. not very "professional", though.

i finished separating the body from the chassis and examined the situation for a while.
with my primitive fabricating tools, i made up some "blocks" out of 3x1 1/2" channel iron.
this would mabe fit the front or rear.
[Linked Image]
if i weld it here(rear).
[Linked Image]
or here(front).
[Linked Image]
the side ones will look like this.
[Linked Image]
with the bushings arranged like this i figure a 2 1/2" lift from stock.
i need to see if i have interference anywhere before i prep the parts for welding.

Hi Richard,

I see what you're trying to do and it looks like it would work. Just a thought, but I have access to a great metal supply down here near me, and I can run out there to see if I can get a scrap piece of round stock next week. If you give me the diameter of your bushing, I can get a piece that is just bigger for you to put in there. I can probably get them to cut it to your desired thickness, as well. I go there for all my materials, so they always help me on the cheap. Once I get them home, I can chock them up in the drill press and bore the holes you need for the bolts and bring them up on a soccer day.

Give me a call, if you'd like, and we can figure out what you need.

Jon

thanks for that, jon.
i already got it half done(at least the welding), and have been ok with the chunks of belt material i was using before.
i think this will work.
i will have to modify the rear bumper. i was able to get away with it last time, but another inch+ makes it look bad.
i may have to modify the holes the gear shifters stick thru.
seem to have less room for 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears.



update: finished setting and welding(that's what i call it) the blocks. i still need to modify 4 support pads before i fasten the body back on, but it's sitting in place.
it started raining.
