Kinda funny. The guy who bought it said he has a similar Camaro coupe project going, but always wanted a convertible. He's planning on turning his, and finishing this one!

There's the key, the right spring rate. Mine sits low now and handles good. Just need to soften the rear some........

1971BB427 Well the '68 Camaro I've been helping my neighbor with, went away today. He decided not to finish the interior and paint, and put it up for sale. Somebody got a lot of car, for a very cheap price!

tech69 working on a custom frame while the 39 I buffed is being put together. Might be done tomorrow. I'll take pics. Total pile. The Cougar should be a notch above that though.

The good thing is, tomorrow is Friday and I'm ready to go get my HF brake w/ coupon. Do I need it? Not really but I might one day and metal shaping is my hobby. Hopefully I could put casters on it too.

MARTINSR I got the hub sand blasted and painted.
