I also have the No Limit kit. IMO, yes it was hard to align. I spent the better part of a month screwing with it before I was happy with the alignment. Ended up taking the front fenders off and...

It was awesome. About 7200 registered cars and I'd guess another 2000 unregistered. Weather was good, no rain all week but it was HOT. I got to talk with Dennis Gage from My Classic Car, nice guy. ...

Iam running a '53 FORD panel with a MOPAR engine. So, it's a 53 FOPAR. Sounded better than 53 MOPRD.
