I was going to install the rotors on my front end, and decided to enlarge the wheel studs as I didn't like the puny 7/16-20 that came with them. I had some leftover 1/2-20 from my Firebird and thought that I could use those instead. It took me two weekends to do it, as I didn't have, nor could I locate locally, the right size drill bit for those studs. When it arrived I drilled out the holes and pressed in the studs only to ruin the rotors. I must have pressed the stud in crooked. It was a first for me, but I did this on both rotors, so I'm also wondering about the quality of the rotors themselves. I also worked on locating my steering box and roughed out the linkage for it. I do need add some spacers to get the bar truly level, and I recycled an unused engine mount adapter plate and the original old 1957 chevy truck steering rod by turning some of it into spacers for mounting my box. Right now it's only tacked into place, and I want to get everything hooked up and test it before welding this in place. I'll be adding some frame reinforcing as well. Also, if I raise my steering box much higher then I won't have room for the radiator I have. It's amazing for such a big car that has no inner sheet metal and an engine that's moved back how quickly I'm running out of room inside.
I was finally home this weekend (lots of travel for me still this year) and I threw on the steering arms, a cross rod, and I made some additional supports for my roll bar. I have them angled back for more seat room (still planning on door bars, too)
Today's progress. In the last pic the cleckos still shown will be where bolts are. I need to add material back on the floor pan to make attachment points for the rear of the removable tunnel, and, make the upper removable section still. I did get more done today than I thought I would.
