It's been a while since I've updated this, Let's see.......
Passangers side B piller is done and so is the door window surround. Had to add a few filler pieces [rolleyes]
Went shopping at my local Pull-a-part and grabed a 3.05:1 8.2" 10 bolt from a 75 coupdevill. Pulled a favor here at work and used the knee mill to drill the correct 5 on 4.75" wheel bolt pattern. (note to self: remeasure EVERYTHING before pulling parts)
The width worked out exactly right using 6" wide S-10 steel wheels.
I think I'll do a mini notch in the frame, make mounts for the stock links and use springs for now.
Basement is DONE!
Folks are all moved in!
The car is unburied, and sparks are flying!
Dad and I hot wired the engine over turkey weekend. NOTHING like open headers to put a grin on old dad's face! Sounds like it's hitting on all 8 and it didn't fill the garage up with smoke, so it's good to go!
Oh it's a 75ish poncho 350, early '70s 400 heads, and torker intake.
Spaced the motor up 1 1/2" to keep the collectors from draging
Working on the pass B piller now, and got a plan for a rear axle.
Just awaiting warm weather to go "shopping"
My Mom has cancer and the chemo forced her to retire early.
So, for the past 6 months I've been finishing my basement so my folks can move in with me. Dad and I are really looking forward to playing cars together again!
Anyhow, I'm drywalling this weekend, so I'm on the home stretch now.
