    Well decided to go ahead and cut it down. 2.5" on each side.

    Moser axles in and the rear setting back under car. Called moser last Monday and told them what I had and wanted 2.5" out of the rear. Simple as that. Had them out to me same week on Friday. Great service and help thru them. Highly recommend.

    Time to finish up welding the exhaust and get it polished. Then I can get this rear set and all the brackets welded on.

    Very nice work! Your headers, exhaust, and rear end look great.

    I hear you! Great thread, and great job!

    What brand front sheetmetal did you buy? Curious if the front fenders are the "new and improved" ones discussed in this thread: http://nastyz28.com/threads/might-be-good-new-fenders.314716/

    Everything is AMD except the fenders. They are goodmark. I can tell you the front had been aggravating. I've had to make almost every hole bigger in everything. The urethane nose has been the most pain in the ass part.
