help on tubbing te cortina

I was wanting to tub my te cortina to fit 275 tyres. I had spoken to my engnieer who has given the ok to do this. The only problem i have is all the chassis shops i have spoken to, have said that i can't retain the back seat to do this. Has anybody out there done a similar mod and retained the back seat?

Re: help on tubbing te cortina

bullshit ask NOS200 and TD302..(errr mysrelf) i've done my TD and Dons TE the TD can fit 255*60-15's on a 8" rim with a little rubbing and the TE can fit 275*50*15's but NOS200 also said he could fit a 275*60*15 with a 8.5" rim which is a bloody huge tyre.... And the trick is........................... NOT TELLING

Would you be able you tell me if the original suspension was used or a new setup made. I have the car striped down to a shell and want to work out the best way to do this before i get the grinder out and start chopping. Any help would be apreshated.

Yes everything stays standard. I only cut the wheel tub in half and move it too the chassis rail weld it back in and use a filler strip to make up the difference. INJECTED 250 in sure you've seen my pics before?
You can't even tell they've been done if you weren't told. Dons NOS200's TE looked better then my TD but mine was the first i'd ever done. The only mod thats needed to fit big tires (245's up) is to mod the std tank or fit a fuel cell as the back edge of the std tank will hit the tyre. I'm going to start the tubs my new TC on the xmas holidays. I'll do this one a little different though, I'll be getting square edge tubs made and will weld them in place as i'm wanting more room to fit 10.5" ET Streets under it.
Cheers Brett

The paint on the last pic was still wet but once it dried you couldn't tell, I also did a flat boot floor to both Don's and mine. I used a 16gal cell and Don had a 8gal

Re: help on tubbing te cortina

Here a pic of my old beasts rear.. They are custom made 8" rims with 255*60*15 (27" tall) has I didn't want to cut the diff down. They only use to rub on the top of the tub as they were so bloody tall and it sat low in the ass
