Front End Installation Tips
 Easy On
 Fish Mouth Design.

 A good idea a customer came up with - was to use fish mouth tubing - a large piece mounted to the frame rail and a somewhat smaller one glassed to the front end itself.  When sliding the front end on it not only self aligns it secure the front end and fasteners are only needed in the rear.

 Tilting One Piece Front Ends
 Most of the work to tilt a full fendered front end can be accomplished at the drawing table. First you will need a photo of the side of the vehicle. draw an outline of its' front end on tracing paper. Cut the outline drawing and lay it over the photo. With the use of a pin, determine where the hinge placement should be (The pin acting as the hinging point.) be sure that your paper model when tilting, does not have the fender hitting the tire or the grill hitting the ground.
 To get more lift
and clearance while tilting, a double hinge
can be fabricated and used. For either double or single hinges, you must start by fiberglassing a 1 x 1 steel bar into the front end, just above and in front of the hinge point. 

 Make sure, before glassing the bar in that a pad is welded on the end to make it more stable. 
 For single hinge mechanism
- weld or bolt an other plate coming off of the frame rail and drill the 1/2" hole in the same location.  With the use of a 1/2" bolt & fiber lock nut ,as your hinge, the front end should pivot properly.  Whatever you do
TAKE YOUR TIME
 For a double hinge mechanism
, weld an oval plate off of the bar in the front end (previously installed) angled down and behind the hinge point.  Cut an oval plate to bolt to the frame horn and add 2 stop bolts to limit the travel. Doing your best to make your assembly look like the animation to the right. It is best to use stainless steel bolts and cotter pin type lock nuts, for a secure installation...and again whatever you do TAKE YOUR TIME!

 IMPORTANT - Please specify the type of racing that the unit will be used for, so we may build and reinforce your unit accordingly. Units manufactured for "Street Racing" have a heavier roving on all edges to reduce the chance of tearing (under to stress of impact) and usually weigh 10 - 15# more than a Drag Racing unit.  Units manufactured for "Sand Drag" or "Baja" style racing are built so as to be midway between the Street Drag and the Street Race units.
