Reply to "Mendeola Front end suspension? IRS rear suspension in 550 spyder"

 If that's a recent pic, we are running parallel in assembly.  That's pretty cool !  My guess is that I will be taking the transaxle and engine down to VMC very soon for fitting exercises. Have you decided on what type and what sizes of wheels and tires you will using ? I'm leaning toward Vredestein Sportrax 5's in the 16 inch size with Fake Fuch's. A lot more availability than in 15".

All the wiring will be done by me. The fuse block will be in the frunk if I can get it to fit up there. The wiring will be bundled tied with waxed, flat braided linen line using an old Navy aircraft method. This will take some time but it will be very nice, neat and secure when I finish. LED's for all the "Edisons"

Here's some pics of a CJ5 I did a few years ago. This one had Cole-Hersey thermal circuit breakers for fuses. I built the entire dashboard from scratch (including the glovebox). It was hinged to fold down if you had to work under the dash. I could sit in the seat and work on anything under the dash that way. This was two year project. Four Wheeler Mag published it as their Centerfold. It now resides in a vineyard outside Brussels Belgium...Talk more later...............Bruce
