Mustang II sure sounds close enough. That's probably the same width as a 240 would be with R rotors, since they stick out 1/2 inch more on each side.

Speedway lower and upper control arms came in along with mustang spindles from summit. It’s nice having summit 30 miles west of us with free two day shipping. Hopefully to get the front mocked up and tacked up this weekend or next.

Right. Maybe he meant hub, face to face then.

Made some progress on the front end. We spent about 6 hours Sunday morning taking measurements using lasers beams, plumb thingys, digital angle mujigys. It’s all tacked up. Still need to do some fine tuning on the passenger side. The top coilover mount is a little off causing the lower control arm to sit lower than the drivers side. Easy fix. Well, till my angle finder stopped working.

We also briefly mapped out the rear end. Looks like the correct path is to have custom frame rails bent for this. Tie them Into the chassis rails under the seats. Not sure when this will happen. Kind of want to get the engine in and get a rough idea what I need to do for mounts.
