New Guy post
Like the forum. Looking forward to participating and getting some helpful info for my project. I'm building the family hot rod - a '72 Chevelle wagon. The 2" drop spindles have improved the stance, updated disk brakes have helped it stop a bit better, and the new steel has helped it cast more of a shadow. She is stripped down and getting ready for paint. This will be my first paint job but I've got an expert working with me so I'm hoping for something passable. When she goes back together I'll be freshening up the SBC - so I'm checking the threads here for advice - and putting a freshly rebuilt 200r4 out of a Buick Grand National behind it. Suspension is updated all around, but if the budget permits I may put in the tubular control arms/taller spindles up front, and some lift bags inside the rear coils to help it corner a bit better. This should get the wife, kid, and two dogs around town and to the grocery store.
