Thanks guys!

I guess I am just used to fender arches matching how they sit on the tires front to rear, but its hard with the 65 as the front wheel arch is a few inches higher than the rear. It makes these cars look nose high even when they are not.

The last car I built sat low....

I think it's currently just about perfect.

According to (scroll down to 'dimensions):

The ground to center of head light (dimension H125) is 26.5" in stock form. Just a reference for your info.

Attached is my '63; the ground to center of head light is 27" which is dead on for a '63.
