    Good eye drkelly. Yes definetly concerned bout that clearance. Gonna finish clip, then modify as necessary; move axle fore of aft, or raise ride height alil bit.

    Thanks for all the comps guys. I am very excited bout getting this to roller status to see whats what.

    Worst case may narrow the shoulder of the fenders to make all work.
