Very nice work. Looks awesome!

May I ask the kind of equipment (air pressure/media) that you've used for sandblasting?

 

I'm not sure of the media. I got the harbor freight  sand blast cabinet from SDstang when he was done with his restoration.  It had the black sand blast media in it. I have blasting around 90 psi.

Mike, did you install a new brake prob. valve or did you use your original? If new, where did you get it from and is it identical to the original? Thanks, Ryan

 Ryan, I did replace the proportioning valve with a Scott Drake 67-73 piece from CJ pony parts. I do Not recommend using it. It"s not even close to the original one. It maybe a better fit for the earlier cars but not for the 71-73s.

Finished up the front suspension this weekend. Detailed and stalled the steering linkage. I went with a Wilwood kit even though my car was a disc brake car. The Wilwood kit seems like a good value for what you get. Are they better than the stock discs who knows. The only mod was the spindles had to be drilled and taped for the caliper brackets. 

 

Nine inch and rear suspension is next.

Looks like you are making great progress. With quality attention to detail. Great work. Spent the past several minutes getting myself back up to speed on your posts. Looks great! Something to be proud of for sure.

I have the same kit to install for the front brakes. How big of a PITA was it to drill and tap the spindle while on the car? What are you using there for a guide in the pic of the thread tap?

Hey Jason, It wasn't bad at all. I used a good bit and cutting oil. My biggest concern was drilling it straight. The guide was tab cut off a adapter plate to bolt a 302 to a VW bus trans.

WOW!!!!  This thread is encouraging and motivating.  GREAT JOB!!!!

 

For the black on the skirt is it flat black or gloss?  Are you doing flat black on the hood?

What paint system did you go with?  Brand, primer, etc?

Used Ditzler hot rod black by PPG on the hood and lower body. Just like the sheen of the hot rod black.  Primer, shop line. Paint and clear PPG.

 

Thanks.

Today I headed out back. I pulled the N case 3.50 T loc that I install back in 95 when I first got the car. I'll tell you what I forgot what a heavy Sum Beach it is. After hitting it with the wire wheel I found the pinon carrier is broke.  :-/  The plan is to go threw it and add 3.70s gears.
