I have a 93 fleetwood im gettin ready to put back together. i took it apart to wrap the frame and reinforce, and chrome everything. im going to kandy paint my frame as well as airbrush it. my problem is that on a few of my cars ive had in the past that when i would three wheel, it would eventually leave a wear mark on the side of my frame on the corner i dropped. why does it do this and how can i avoid it so i dont chip the kandy and airbrushing off?

Are you talking about the mark where you tire is rubbing the frame?

I guess the solution would be no rollin 3's......or at least don't lean it as much.

Then there's the problem of the tires rubbing the inside of the body when riding low.

You can't on the Big Bodi Fleets b/c of the width clearance on the rear wheels. We already have to run ..x6's in the rear.

I feel ya, I'm the same way. Its hard not to. Like someone else said, don't lean it as hard. Your gonna have to get a feel for it, which comes w/ practice. However, a frame that has Kandy & artwork isn't exactly when you wanna be practicing.
Not leaning as hard is gonna result in a 3 thats not as high. You can compensate that a few ways by changing up things a little.

Like Tufly said it could be the edge of the your drum. check the drum for signs of wear.

If this is the problem, just take the drum covers to a machine shop, have them put them on a mill & take off about an inch. Easy fix if this is the problem....

Lac, you running 14x7's in the rear??????????
[snapback]3533284[/snapback]​
Hell yeah. Still sits low and tires don't rub the inside of body anymore.
I used to 185/75's and those were shitty tires to have.
