Spring has sprung enough here in W. Mass to prime and color coat the lakester frame.

Got car up on leveling plates and discovered they will need modification. Adjusted panhard bar in front and got spring shackles to hang at approximately the same angle. Got right and left wheelbase measurement within 1/4" in 234" Making new leveling plates this week.

1/4 Huh? that sounds like a lot.   Our wheelbase is only 144 inches but side to side the wheelbase is set up to the exact same number as best as the eye and tape measure can see.... so probably under .030.  We have a Datum point set up on the car and measure both ways to reduce tape sag.
YMMV.... (Your Measurements May Vary)

Thanks Stainless for the information. We didn't know how equal is equal or how square is square.
