I know there have been other discussions out there on the Shelby Drop, but I'd like to start one that anyone can look at and see what's involved straight away. I just did a search for "shelby drop" and did not find a thread dedicated and detailed on the subject.
Seeing as this is a long weekend, I thought I might have a go at doing mine, and I'll take plenty of pics to put in this thread.
I'll go back through looking at the other threads again and edit this post when I find some more details.
Edit: I've also uploaded the template image to my webserver in case it goes missing from the original website.
Edit: Ok, so its easy for people to find in the thread, here is what I did.
First I made up the template in steel sheet using the following dimensions. Note, this is including Kerrys suggested additional 3mm (1/8in) drop at the rear. Please note that this image suits the left side of the car and should be flipped for the opposite side (note the front of car arrow).
I drilled the full size holes in the top so that I could put bolts through, and 3mm holes in the bottom.
After bolting the template to the original holes, I drilled the new holes with a few different sizes from 3mm up to the 13mm final size.
Guys I have a couple of questions regarding the shelby drop.
1. Do I need to run a weld and grind it flat for the nut to seat on, or not worry? (where the arrow in pic is).
2. I've noticed in a few build thread pics that no one seems to weld up the old holes. Is there a reason for this?
