Default Re: BEAM EXTENDER "FAQ" THE BASICS 101

I have a question. What is the longest anyone has ever extended a bug front end?
I was thinking I wanted mine out at least 12 or 14 inches. Maybe even longer. I bought an old Baja with a bug eye front end so I dont have any sheetmetal in my way. I was thinking of doing a really long front nose like on the old deco cars of the 20's and 30's. Maybe extend the cowl and extend the hood somehow. What about 24" ? I can make the bracing and increase the castor to keep it at the stock profile.
Am I a little crazy? Am I almost better off building a new frame?
