Long Wheel Base Chevettes

Hello,

Anyone have drawings etc of how to do these as I am looking at reproducing all the parts required.

Is it just the movement of the suspension top caps and suspension components forward, if so by how much?

Regards and any info would be appreciated.

Steve, chance of publishing what you know here for everyone's information?

TJM, have photos of KFL 306W all the oily bits if it helps, probably not a lot of use without the dimensions tho'

I don't remember these being actually that much longer than standard WB, am I right?
