    Over the winter recess I have added anti-tramp bars to the rear suspension. In doing so I have also removed the saddle pads as most of the rally preparation guides suggest doing because it improves the axle location. Also used Escort U bolts to replace the existing Marina versions.

    Nice looks good, have you felt the difference? My brother has a 67 mustang we've got traction bars to install some time soon which look like they'll mount in a similar way.

    Not had a chance to drive it yet. I need to get it on its wheels and torque up the bolts. Oh, and put the seats back in. The goal was to limit the axle wind up because I believe that it was taking the UJs outside there limits. I noted that on the last retropower episode they mentioned that it was a problem with short props.
