No one has built one of these? Really would like a measurement. Don't want to be off 3/4"

Have you tried contacting John Senior ( The Fiberglass Workshop) himself. He's in Ajax Ontario I think. It's his body kit and he has built at least 2 turnkey versions, a silver customer car and an orange one of his own. He should be able to give you the exact measurements you need.

10 1/2" was for the coreydavis roadster which is the body he copied, I don't know for sure if john changed anything that would alter the 10 1/2' stretch

I would buy the body first and then you can measure it and make sure you do the stretch right.

Right!!!
You have to match your new wheelbase to the wheel wells on the body...period.
That is the prime factor.

Agreed!!

And do not make your arms until you have wheels and brakes! Do not learn the hard way like I did.
