i was messing around last night , getting the body in the right position, , the axle is now in the correct place , from the side ,the hubs are now in the center of the arches, measured the axel against the boby and im going to have to loose anther 4", 2"off each wishbone , this way i will have around 3/4" - 1" clearance between the outside edge of the tyre and the body , ,

also i bought a small fibreglass kit yesterday, im going to glass that boot(trunk) corner piece back in to the body :)

Sorry that you have to pull the wishbones agian, you have come so far already.
Would going to diffrent wheel offset help any or is it more cost effective to just redo wishbone ?
You have done a relly good job .

got some smaller tyres today, , also got the other stock coil spring on the other side , tryed the body on and i will not be cutting the axels again as i put 26 stone on the bike and there was still clearance, no rubbing on the body, the wheels stick out about 3/4 " on each side, but im happy with that , i also started the building work on my new premesis today having to put down a new concrete floor , and roof,

Good job getting the body lined up on your Jag-Trike.
The new rims & tires look good on it & centered in the well.
Maybe a pair of rubber fender flair will help to cover the tires from good old JC Whitney.

http://www.jcwhitney.com/rubber-fender-extensions-fender-flares/p2008750.jcwx?skuId=166131
Extend 2-1/4". 1/4"-thick rubber. Universal mount?use on fender wells that are rusted out or have been cut out to make room for over-sized tires. 58" long. Drilling required. Hardware included. One pair.

Good pictures, Great work.
Call me bout the tail lights.

That's 360 Lbs for us Colonials.
tyres = Tires
Boot = Trunk (no shoes)
Bonnet = Hood (not hat)
