Finally had room to get a project in the E-tek shop for a gentleman who had been waiting for quite a while for some progress on his rod. No slouch himself, he did a lot of fab work on it about 10 years back, but due to life's time crunch hasn't been able to make any headway since. About a year ago he contacted me and I liked the way he was going on it - so I juggled some stuff to get it in.
The 5.0L/302 has AC and P/S. The AC pump normally hangs out into the inner fender, so a bracket was fabbed up to locate it higher and to the centre. Another bracket is being made to relocate the tensioner.
Tons of parts to go through!
Owner has already purchased kits for power windows and locks, needs it all installed. Also, I'll be shaving the doors, fabricating a console, and seat brackets, getting the computer sorted out, wiring the interior and lights and everything....FUN!
