Thanks I only have a " Haynes " manuel ! I searched in it yesterday for probally 3 hrs . Reread several sections . I have made a tryke out of a 78 wing , color Blue . The rear is the pickup Box or of a 96 Nissan ,color Blue . Perfect Match on the paint . It measures Just under 9 ' Long Wheel base. Like many others Im suffering the dreaded . " Death Wobble , Deadly Viloent Rapid Shudder ". The " Rivited 5 Star Wheel failed ! Thank God for rear brakes !
