The 351c is about to be pulled from the bay, as well as the FMX. Got the complete new fuel system that will be routed from the tank along the passenger side using 1/2" tubing. Then going to install the new line lock system since there will be tons of room with the engine and trans out. Just received the Powermaster Mini high torque starter, Holley 4150HP 1000cfm carb, driving to Fresno tomorrow to pick up my newly ceramic coated headers.

Well spent the entire Friday pulling the 315C and FMX. Then we removed a ton of now useless wires, tubing, and hoses. Started fabing up cover plates for the shifter hole, and brake booster hole in the firewall to get ready for the new Hurst shifter and Wilwood non-power master cylinder with added line lock system.

 

Today finishing up the firewall brake hole cover, installing new carpet kit, degreasing engine bay and removing old nasty rusted battery tray.

Three nights in a row working till midnight out in the garage in the freezing cold here in Central Cali. Didn't get my Christmas wish of getting to start this beast up, but the 521 is all bolted in between the fenders and the new TCI C-6 is bolted up and mounted. Now its just all the small stuff and getting a driveline made. Also got all brand new suspension and steering put on the front end.

I just now come acrossed this thread. You have a great looking car. What size of tires and wheels do your have? On your suspension, is the frt or rear lowered? Is has a very nice stance.

Regarding the suspension, as far as I can tell it has all stock components, I just put all new suspension and steering components in since I am putting that BBF 521 engine and C6 in. When I removed the stock 351C suspension it looked as though someone at some time had cut the coils to lower the front a little.

 

The rims as I have mentioned were custom ordered from American Racing, the rear are 18x10 and the front are 17x7. For tires I will have to check the size when I get home from work today but I know that they are Nitto and the rear are drag radials. Ill update this post when I get the actual tire size numbers.
