Coil overs are installed. Ride height is spot on.

Thanks.
Yes, we’ve both picked a good color. To me, there’s something about orange and chrome that looks so clean.

Can’t believe the difference this made in the detail of the engine compartment.

Tracy,
I went back and read you're first post. I was amazed at the clarity you had and direction. You're Vega is made of Hero stuff. In these 25 pages you have documented the car so well. A Hot Rod Long Roof from the 70's. The use of period parts, you're attention to detail is exceptional. The engineering aspect is beyond reproach. I could go on but let's talk about the car. Let's remind everyone about the Vega and The 70's. It was the quintessential shade tree Hot Rod. It seemed V8 Vegas appeared everywhere at once. In neighborhoods, at the Drag Strip and street racing like wild fire and you're Motion Clone theme points directly at the performance legacy of that platform. I thank you for that.

Got the car running and have been moving it around a little. Got some bugs to work out before it hits the road.

Are you planning on running a hood, and if yes, with or without a scoop? Looking pretty nice right there I have to say! :thumb: You must be pretty eager to get out and :burn: :burnout: ! And overall feeling :woohoo: Thanx for taking us along for the ride! Harry

I have a hood, but it’s not painted yet. Still not sure if I’ll install it or not. Haven’t decided on a scoop or not.
