Definitely 1 bad arse class 5 nice job on the build..I read you lengthened the srb front how hard would it be to narrow one up????I got a sweet oval window shell and a ml-04 I was thinking of hacking up and throwing on a srb front end if it could be done to replicate my 1:1 56 rag top..Any advise would be great cause those front ends aren't cheap...

Narrowing a SRB front end should be fairly easy. On the side of the shock towers, there is one screw on each side that is screwed into the center tube of the assembly. Remove the screws from both shock towers, and then slide the towers off of the tubes. Then you can narrow the tubes to achieve the desired width, You may have to pick up a M3 tap to extend the treads on the center tube after you narrow it. Also, if you have to narrow allot, you may have to cut a little off the suspension arm pins as well!! I hope this helps you out! I would do a how to thread, but I really have no need for a narrowed front assembly.

Once you have a SRB front end in your hands, you will see that it is really straight forward what you would need to do!
