Just to make sure that my estimates were somewhere near I stuffed all the interesting bits into the van. This gives a pretty good idea of how it will all go together, although in the final build there will (probably) not be so much wood !
With a spare tyre underneath as a 'ground clearance gauge', the top of the rocker covers sit level with the top of the wheel arches!! Mmmm, nice & low :-)
As the box is not too tall, the rear floor will cover it up nicely as far as the mounts for the coilovers which will be close to the back of the bellhousing
The new swing arms allow room for cast SD1 manifolds, with the pipes probably running underneath the driveshafts to allow for a nice gentle bend.
At the front, it looks like the bulkhead will follow the existing line of the load bed, but with the supercharger at ear level it may be a bit noisy !!!
