Wheels & Reveals.

Rear wheel well and wheel

One of the hallmarks of a "traditional" roadster are big wheels in the back. The problem is that those big wheels hide those neat looking reveal lines. We want to have our cake and eat it, too. Therefore we are going to make new reveal lines to match the tires we want.

Randy measures the desired height when finished.

How low can we go?

Rear wheel well. Rear frame rail.

Since we plan to bob the rear of the car, we need to chop off those excess rear rails and kick them up so that the roadster will hug the ground front and back. The Deuce Steel frames already gives the roadster a lower stance in front--now the front and rear will bel level.

Wheel template. Wheel template used to determine reveal radius.

A piece of press board cut to the diameter of the tire we will be using is used as a template for construction of the new rear wheel reveals.
