Bro that 66 looks good, i never understood why you talked down on that car so much 🤣. 66 look good and your 66 is a good example of a 66.Finally got the tires mounted, balanced and put on the ride. Now it‘s actually starting to look like a lowrider. I originally didn’t want to put wheels on the car until it was done... but Dayton has a three year warranty and I don’t want to waste a full year of the warranty with them sitting in the house in case some spokes get loose within 3 years of me rolling them. Plus tomorrow’s not promised.
Now with the wheels on, I’m starting to actually grow a love for my car. I’ve always liked 66’s but never loved them like the 58-61 and 63-64 impalas, mainly because the back end is no plain. The back end is starting to grow on me. I think it won’t look so plain when the bumper guards are put on.
Here‘s some pics of it with the wheels 😎
Thanks bro. I‘ll put it this way... I like 66’s enough to build one but not enough to drop serious money to do a frame off like I will when I get a 64 because a 66 is not a car I would keep. I will spare no expense when I finally get a 64 because I absolutely love that car. I’m starting to love the 66 more though.Bro that 66 looks good, i never understood why you talked down on that car so much 🤣. 66 look good and your 66 is a good example of a 66.
I was gonna have my tailpipes cut so I can roll with the front locked up and the back dumped through parking lots when it’s cut but I decided to keep them the way they are after seeing this pic. There’s just something cool about a car laying pipes.
I was gonna just have them fix the brace but I decided to get my exhaust reworked to clear the frame and rear end when it’s cut. No need for going to the muffler shop twice. I decided I’m gonna go ahead and have the exhaust tips cut because they are right under where the bolts will go for for bumper guards and there’s no way they won’t get crushed. Plus I don’t want exhaust pipes laying so low that it limits my range of motion and how I hit the switch. I wanted to keep them but I think it will be too much of a problem. I will try to get it done sometime next week. With the bumper guards it will be a clean look like this one.Gonna have to go to the muffler shop soon because I Bottomed out my exhaust and one of the braces snapped causing it to hang low on the drivers side. I managed to raise it up to drive home but don’t want to drive it again until I’m headed to get it fixed. Just gonna have them do as little work as possible for now until I have my exhaust reworked to clear the ground to lay frame when it’s cut.
Thanks bro. I’m going with 4 batteries. I can’t see myself ever building a lowrider with more than 4 batteries. I like 48 volts because it’s trouble free. 6 and 8 batteries look better though. If I did do 6 or 8 batteries it would be 2 banks of 36 or 48 volts. I just slapped new Daytons on the ride 😎NICE FIND! I would get a simple hydraulic set up. No more than 8 batteries 2 pumps and some clean Daytons. Simple and clean. You can't go wrong with a 60's Impala
