    I know the spacers are a well known practice but I wonder what that does to the camber.

    Hmm, don't ya think bringing that coil spring down a tech or so isn't moving the offset of that upper trunion a wee bit.

    John,

    Thanks for your reply. Vette has started a new thread on the lowering of the front end so I will move my comments to his thread so we don't divert from the Driving Lights discussion.


    Thanks,
    Ray(64BJ8P1)

    Here's my 100/6 with the Rawles mounts. They are quite... chunky, but I like them! The lights are cheap spots from Deamon Tweeks.

    I was able to locate and purchase a reasonably priced pair of marchal 889 fog/driving lights that are approximately 7 inches in diameter. they appear to be in very good condition and are stainless steel bodies. now to decide on a mount for them. I prefer to have them mounted sort of between the turn signal/parking lights and the lower edge of the grill. most likely will need to make the mounts! thanks for the pictures and suggestions.
