Re:: paint   

After 9 years of work and numerous setbacks I finally have paint on my project. Here is a pic from the side, there are a couple more on my build page...

Reassembly is going great, but slow as I tend toward the disease "while I'm here, why not..."
Anyway, I have a quick question. I'm using a highly modified ball joint front beam with center shocks. I used the upper torsion tube for the shock actuators, no upper torsion pack, kind of like the little Volkswagen race cars. What I'm wondering is, I have original (1964-67?) torsion pack in the lower tube. Do these sag over time? Car is sitting a little lower in the front than I anticipated and wondering if a new torsion pack might bring it up 1/2" - 1". I'm running 2" drop spindles and that would be too much of a correction. I do have one of the adjustable pieces welded in the center of the lower torsion tube if you're wondering, but out of room with my bump stops.
Thanks for any help, I'll try to get another picture up soon.

There is probably a bit of sag, but with, I assume, a lighter body I don't see a new stock set of leaves making much difference. Sway-a-way makes a 13% stiffer set, but at $200 the price and ride would be quite stiff! I think you're saying you don't want to swap the stock spindles back on, soooo move your bump stops? I assume you put them on since stock beams don't have bumpstops.

Adjusting the front, up, would get you away from the bump stops.

I may have to do just that, but I'm going to get it out on the road and see how low it really is and if it is as big an issue as I think it is.
The bumpstops are ears welded to the lower trailing arms, front and back, partly needed because I made the tie rod holes as small as possible. Even so, I missed a little and one rubs slightly so I will have to do a little cutting, or at least sanding to gain clearance. It's not enough to affect the steering, but will certainly wear through the paint down to raw fiberglass.
Found out last week I have to have my gallbladder removed, so I'll be out of commission for a few weeks probably. Still, in South Carolina there is still a chance I'll get to drive it this year.
Fingers crossed!

Anyone interested in a nice, driver quality 1931 American Austin Coupe? Smaller than a VW bug with a 75" wheelbase.
