Thanks for the road test info, I have not seen the 7 inch figure before. I have found reference to 4.5 and 5 inches but I am assuming those were measured under the mufflers or something and I would believe it but at 4.5 inches one could not use the included jack.

Thanks for the picture Monsieur map, that is just a classic garage shot, call it "dust and passion" or something, I did not recognize your handle at first but when I looked again I do recognize that project and have been checking in on your progress from time to time but honestly did not remember that picture. Any new updates on your excellent build? Yours has been one of my inspirations to go the scratch build route. I do see the family resemblance there for sure, I have never seen a Mr. Bruce body in person although before I found this body that was going to be my first choice, I am told he does nice work.

I will keep you folks posted on my progress and based on the 7 inch number I think some where in the 6 to 7 inch range might be just fine, it also give me a bit more wiggle room on my calculations.

You build what you like and I will build what I like...it's all good

You know that guy,
The one in the neighborhood who likes to hang around the garage while you are working and talk about back when he had that killer 1977 Chevy Mustang
