If I did this stuff right, here's the video. It's just a cell phone video, but it's all I have.

I hope it does. I haven't been able to work on the car much, because of my schedule lately. I'm going to try to take it to have it inspected this week, so I can get my tag. Wish me luck. I spent today working on the hood. I bought a bolt on cowl from harwood. Not exactly what I wanted, but it'll do for now. Maybe later, I can paint the hood, and it'll look better. Brad

Haven't updated in a while, figured I better. The radiator I was going to use was leaking badly, so I ordered a new one, and installed it. I loaded the car on my trailer, took it to work, washed it, and took it to be inspected. It passed!!!! :dance: :D :dance: About a month ago, I took the car to my buddy's shop, removed the seats, carpet, and padding. Then I installed the subframe connectors. I like how they turned out, and they go all the way to the front pads for the suspension. I had to notch the tubes for the tranny mount/jack pads. I went ahead and installed the driveshaft, and proceeded with fabricating the exhaust. 3 inch mandrel to the dumps, then 2 1/2 inch regular bent to the mufflers with turn downs(until I install the new rearend). I also ran the new fuel line, electric fuel pump, and fuel filter. This week, I fit the seat tracks to the new seats, and installed them to check fitment, real tight fit, but works for me. The last couple of days, the brakes are getting redone with new master cylinder, calipers, wheel cylinders, pads, shoes, and rubber hoses. The v8 front springs were also installed at this time to raise the frontend of the car where it belongs. I forgot to order the new shocks when I ordered the brake parts, so I'm hoping they will be in Friday or Saturday. The car is tagged and insured, and almost ready for a test drive, sucks that it is 30 degrees outside. Brad
