No offense intended or taken. I just don't agree with what you're planning for that car. That'* my personal opinion. It'* your car, and you'll do what you feel best in the end.

Yea I know. The car is still being used for parts idk if i mentioned that but there is a white bonneville coming up on an auction that im fixing with this one. So by the time Im done its going to be a chassi with the parts needed to run and 2 or 3 doors. After that I might be able hand over some parts, as long as shipping was paid for and maybe a small price because the car is worth 300 still. Nothing official yet just saying.

For the simple reason that you won't have any ground clearance, this is a waste of the remaining parts.

You cannot turn a Bonneville into a mud drag car unless you invest in the suspension. The drivetrain won't hold the abuse either.

Point of clarification:

Aphix, is the car in your signature the one you're going to be using? I was a little confused by your first post.
