  1. I like your exhaust setup and plan on doing something similar to mine. Are the pipes flush with the lower X section of the frame or do the pipes sit lower? Reason Im asking is that my car, when airbags deflated, will sit on the frames X section and wondering if the pipes will fit without hitting the floor.
  2. Thank you Adams. Forgot to details - 1940 Desoto coupe. Two types- the one on the body on the first picture are screwed into the body and are a but wider than the one im holding. The ones on the second pick are push in type
  3. Does anyone know where I can find these two types of Stainless body trim clips. If I can find them, I rather use the original ones instead of making my own. Ive made my own on other cars before but had troubles getting the stainless to evenly set on the body.
  4. Thanks Andy, all this information is priceless.
  5. Makes perfect sense. Thank you wonder if I can find a shop here in So. Cal that can fabricate one for me. Thanks for posting a picture for reference.
  6. Andy, what year Jeep sway bar did you use on your 40 Dodge. I searched a few different year Jeep and none appeared to be remotely close to my stock 1940 desoto bar.
  7. Thank you Edward, amazing work. Suprisingly the moderators over at the HAMB didnt get upset at you for posting something so "Non Traditional"
  8. Thanks for the info. I had no clue, i had been sitting on this brake project for over 6 years and forgot what calipers and rotors where used. Researched and found out that they are Ford Probe rotors and 1990 chevy Celebrity calipers and pads. Its a scarebird kit but they have since updated their kit.
  9. The location of the brake line is stock. I did notice others have it on the front of the shock mount
  10. I havent driven the car with this setup, but heres a pic of my Fatman shock relocation bracket. Sits a lot higher than most others Ive seen.
  11. Nevermind. I just noticed that my kit is very different than yours. Mine is a scarebird for a 1940. It has two top mounting bolts in the caliper mounting plate while yours has one directly above the kingpin.
  12. Hey Edward, what caliper mounting plate are you using on your front disk conversion? Are you also going with disk in the rear?
  13. Any updated pictures on your front brake install? It appears I have the same kit. Interested on how the steering arms where bolted on. I noticed the alen style bolts that came with the Scarebird kit
  14. Thank you! Yes I just confirmed by looking at the rotor differences on all year Probes... all call for the same part number. Thank you. Need to vent a lil here- I called Scarebird and they informed me to email them. I emailed and stated that in 2013 the recommended the 1990 Chevy Cavalier caliper with a Ford Probe rotor my question was what year Probe rotor they recommended back in 2013. They stated they couldnt tell unless I provided them a part number that "might" be stamped on the adapter. Interesting.... 😲
  15. Correction- Found my scarebird receipt from 2013 and it used 1990 Chevy Cavalier Calipers and Ford Probe rotors. I cant find any literature as to what year Ford Probe rotors, Ill be calling Scarebird to verify.
