  1. The car is now at the paint shop. Should be back in a couple of weeks. I'm now getting all the interior items ready to install. Had to buy new door cards and some of the rear quarter panels. The original panels that were not damaged were painted to match the gloss of the new ones. The picture shows the old panel newly painted on the left and the new panel on the right New window seals have been fitted to the door cards and rear trims. Many of the pins on the woodgrain door panels were broken or missing. The panels themselves were still good so I put new pins in the panels. These were cut from mild steel, bent as in the pictures and secured on the back of the panel with fiberglass body filler. The rear fold-down seat sections have also been restored and ready to install.

  2. This is my version of my 71 Sportsroof. Has 460 with C6 and 3.73:1 rear end. 3 1/2 years of work and 99.95% done. This is dedicated to my brother.

  3. I read the reviews on that piece and they arent very good. Most people are saying to buy the repop piece which is metal, and then just do the required cutting to let you use a more modern head unit.

  4. Is it an "M" code 351 (Cleveland) engine, or an actual 351M? Two different engines, but very similar. If it is a 351M do you know how it got in the car? A 351C "M" code came with 4V heads and requires 4V headers.

  5. Got it done- or at least 95% done. The Westach gauges are lightweight, but not everyone’s cup of tea. The aluminum bezels I made aim the gauges more towards the driver. Turned out pretty clean it took some pretty major rotary tool surgery on the console.

  7. Well a few more little updates with the car. Part of things right now has been just enjoying driving it since all of the big stuff is done. So first off I got around to changing the plugs on it. My dad couldnt remember when the plugs were changed last, and they were definately looking a little dark. It got a set of new Accel copper core header plugs and for now I gapped them at .035" and timing is set to 16 degrees. It also made it into the exhaust shop to get the drivers side rear pipe rebent where it goes over the axle. The previous shop(15+ years ago) had dropped the pipe down too quick and it wound up hitting the shock so wanted to get this fixed before I replaced the shock. And I have the new Dayton springs ready to go in it, and just waiting for the KYB shocks to arrive before finally getting to work on the back again. Will be crawling under with some rust convertor paint and a steel brush when i do it to clean things up a little bit. Other than that just enjoyed taking it on its longest cruise yet(still not super far). With the fuel pump problems I had been having I didnt want to go too far in case the pump died again, but it seems to be running great and was a pleasure to take out on the highway. This weekend we may try and tackle the red head steering box, just need a friend to come help me get it in and bolted up. But I think Im going to enjoy more drives like this. Also wanted to mention that work is progressing for the Clock Delete/Holley Sniper EFI mount. A friend is working on making it with his 3D printer. He did his first print but decided to change things up a little bit. Should be a really nice and inconspicuous way of mounting the little screen.
