Yea the first time I posted a pic of my engine bay on thesamba I got spanked by everyone. That was one of the first projects I had on my bay, put the fuel filter behind firewall (and replaced lines). Not as easy to get to when changing, but I feel better about it.

I would not recommend the 165 45s all the way around Maybe for the front but you will have to be super low for it to look right. It is just not enough tire. For the rear you need to stay around the 25" diameter or you will be using more rpms to go the same speed as you do now

Drop spindles are about 140. If you can weld you can put adjusters in your beam for like 20-30 bucks. Also if you can weld you could just cut and turn the beam.

Got any updated pics of it lowered? I have a sweet primered 70 also. Got the spindles, just have not installed them yet. And I like those bumpers. I need some new ones and was contemplating those myself. Looks good.

I don't mean to sound like a critic, but thought I would let you know that those are not '31 Ford taillights. They are '38-'39 Ford taillights. Good looking ride!
