Itís pretty essential if you run wide rubber specially if lowering cam. Years ago I managed to pull the non rolled lip out where the tyre contacted it on full lock. I was running 185 65 14 tyres on 6Ē rims set in as close to the top ball joint as I would dare on HR disc front.

Nice work Cam keep the photos coming mate I really like seeing builds on the forum it is a pity we are not seeing more.

I had an issue with my front tyres when I finished my Sedan and bought a guard roller off of ebay used a heat gun to gentle warm the paint so it didn't crack and again gentle rolled the guard out slightly, no more rubbing issue.  Grin

no real need for the lipped rear guard ..the inner guard pretty much sits out/in more than the lip

depends what tyre youre gonna run.
im gonna try and get some more guard clearance seeing how close i can get that inner to the quarter panel.
seeing as though i got my 1/4 panel off i can check pretty easy
i will get back to you on that one.
anway youre doing great with the build .keep it up!!!!

I canít help anticipating that you might want to tidy up and improve that inner wheel well area while you have such good access to it Wayno. It is pretty common to bend the seam up and move the tub wall in for an additional 20mm or so clearance as you are more than likely aware.

Apologies for hijack Cam. What I was going to say about the wheel arches, I agree you donít gain any clearance as the inner guard is in the same plane so to speak. On the other hand you see it on a lot of cars, mainly the type that crawl over speed humps etc. they run wheels that just sit under the outer edge and look great. Hard cornering and unexpected bumps cause the tyres to rub occasionally.

Few little finds at the Ballarat sap meet.
Glove box badges. External door handles. Wiper motor VN. Wiper bezels. Fuel cap. Internal door pulls. 



Now I have a question about glove box badges.. There are different types can some one put together some images With what models they were on..  Just some home work for you all.  Now I say that I hope the info is not already in the forum.  Roll Eyes

Hi all

Just some seat belt plate work this week.

Cut out plates to spec's 150x75 ,   100x75 and 75x50,     > 5mm radius corners


Got my 7/16 UNF nuts grade 8 and weld them on, (I have also converted to copper based weld thur paint compared to the zinc which spatters alot more)


Used a length of wire to pull the B pillar plate up to its position. Helps that the bottom of the B pillar is off..   Grin  Then used a long bolt to pull it into position before spot welding into position.



Also welded up the outer hole on the B Pillar.

Nice work Cam. Have to do the b pillar on my ute but it is a lot easier as it is wider, there are access holes, and the inside is covered by the head lining, so the plate can be screwed or pop riveted in place.

So which plate goes where? Iím guessing the larger plate on the buckle side and the narrow one must go in the top of the pillar. By the way it looks like the long plates at the top might be 150x35, not 75.
Cheers
Clay

You got me Clay
       They are 150 x 35 and they go at the top of the B pillar.  75 x 50 at the bottom and the 100 x 75 are for the double point in each side of the tunnel.
