Stripped off the red paint. Gaped the fender and started filing

That brings back memories. A lot of "body" guys could learn a lot from this post....

Keep up the good work.

Thanks. Lots of work. I will still have to use some filler in areas like where I welded flairs on and such but I plan to lead them in lieu of plastic fillers.

Does anyone know what the max is that I can raise the spindle? I am running 18" wheels.

based on this page from Elephant, and a little math, it's looking like 50mm is the max for an 18" wheel. IDK if anyone has raised a spindle that much, or if you'd even want to. you would have a hell of a time going back to a smaller wheel in the future if you wanted to.

My first set of spindles I raised were 25mm. 16" rims barely fit.

My current set is raised 22mm, which IMO is a good compromise considering how often I drag my front spoiler and the major bump steer kit needed to fix the handling.

Now would be a good time to weld in some gussets.
