WIDE-BODY KIT FROM SCRATCH


Recommended Posts

Right on brother. Can’t build a car or complete other projects from a sick bed. But I hate spinning my wheels. I want the straightest path obstacles will come up but under or over I’m still going straight till it’s done. My dad was a 145 pound Sicilian Italian that loved Fords as you all know and I lost him to heart failure. I can’t go down that path.

Thanks for the eye opener guys. I am scratching the fifth floor and even though I have no issues in regards to weight, I can feel the aging of my fingers, shoulder, back and vision. I keep my self active and playing all kind of sports with my son, but my right shoulder has been an issue. The shoulder has been aggravated by the use of rotary tools and doing strength with arms lifted in weird positions. Every time my shoulder starts feeling better I do something under the car that aggravates it. Trust me, shoulder injuries take forever to heal. A big part of taking it too long to heal is skipping the exercise from PT because I stayed working in the car too late and I don't have time. The vision issue is one that I am learning to deal with when assembling small items together. I still need to get used to having reading glasses on when looking at these small items, but then removing them to work on other things. I keep losing them!! Tell me about working under the dash. Now I need glasses to see that close when laying on the carpet.

Amazing. If I’m going on about this too much I apologize but how do we enjoy the cars when these things get in the way. I will say however by doing this simple program I got rid of the inflammation. That way the route of all my problems. No more apnea. Huge because you don’t rest. No more snoring after the third day I’m on it. Back pain gone. Knee pain gone. ...etc. It boils down to the fact that vitamins are not too difficult to gain through food but minerals are. With age comes less and less minerals and then there are problems. Anyway, let’s keep our machine in good order so we can work on our driving machines lol.

LOL. I do. Every day is sand and paint but on entry doors. Not cars.

It's been very interesting watching your journey with your car. It's an amazing accomplishment to do what you have done in a home shop. It must feel really good to be getting to the point where you can get serious about paint color.

 

I noticed that you're closing in on 100,000 views on your thread. There's been a lot of interest in your project.

 

Well done.

Thank you Don. Lots of good people here who are generous with both their compliments and time. I’d love to eventually run into everyone and their builds. Bucket list for sure!

Maybe we need to start an old-farts health thread?

One subject I've studied for many years is natural/alternative health and haven't taken any pharmaceuticals whatsoever for nearly 10 years

In our chemically farmed soils there is very little valuable minerals left so you are correct and would be interesting to know what program you are doing

I had knee problems a few years ago (old-farthritis) so started taking a magnesium supplement and make my own bone broth - knees perfect now

Tony - for your shoulder problem could look into stem cell therapy, Joe Rogan uses this quite a bit and talks about it in some of his podcasts

Good stuff Angelo! Black car, white car...doesn't really matter. Kids want (and need) their fathers and I'm glad to see you put your health as a priority over the car. It will be there when you get to it.

 

ps- I can't wait to see that mutha in white!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! ::thumb::

Good advise buddy. The program I’m on is called a Metabolic Reset. It’s a 6 week thing with outstanding results because once your done you can include foods you love again but with an education on what food does. At the same time you kick your sugar/carb addiction and detox your body. It involves eating proteins vegetables and certain fruits. These people have helped so many thatbtheur in the process of putting up a website. They are called iHEALTHe.  Will be up and running before the month is up. Hope that helps anyone who’s curious. Anyway about the cat I’m looking into getting the Edelbrock tune port injection system and selling my brand new FItech throttlebody that I bought. Looks like a better system to go with.

Something really cool someone did that I just stumbled on. Gave me goosebumps cause I had no idea it was out there and it’s amazing to see the journey like that. I want to send out a huge thank you to the person who did this. I don’t know how to reach them so if anyone does please convey it for me. So cool.

If you go with the TPI injection, which manifold will you use? Do they make a manifold for the Cleveland?

Hey Tony. I believe the kit I’m looking at comes with the intake for small block. I really don’t know if Edelbrock makes it for big blocks. I can’t see why they wouldn’t but I wasn’t looking closely enough to notice when I was searching. Hope so.

Thank you sir. Too me any and all praise from all of you I take with much pleasure. You all are not just gear heads but also have a vested interest in exactly this body style and that’s why getting it right in your eyes means so much. Also why criticism is carefully considered as well. Just as a what’s up., l ’m either going to take my month off during my slow winter holiday season and generate coin to enlist help with the car such as a repaint or go at it with the help of friends like Marco and it gets to where i get. Whatever gets me driving it quicker. At this point I wouldn’t mind handing off the body and paint this time around. Someone seeing the car newly is always going to be fresh energy. Good for moving forward any project

Hi all. I hope it’s ok to put this here but I’m putting both cars up for sale. I’d like to put some more money together to continue on the 71 and possibly pounce on another car I have my eye on. You can pm me if you know of anyone looking. I figure it makes better dollar sense state side with the exchange being what it is for someone looking to buy one of these. Cheers.

When time is a factor to getting something done there is always putting money on it to have someone else take on getting past humps. Lol.

You may have a picture of the inside of the hood somewhere in this thread but I didn't want to go over the 100+ pages. Do you have a picture of how the air extractors look on the inside. I love how they look!

I saw the under hood of the SuperSnake. It’s just the two openings allowing engine bay heat to escape. I think they popped up the center of the hood just so the huge charger can fit. Mine I hope to isolate the intake scoops and drive the cooler air into the filter/throttle body. My air extractors will just remain open to the engine bay.
