Nice work! Looks like a lot of hrs in that job! Man if you dropped that thing 4" from where it was in your original pics that thing is sitting on the freakin ground! Are you sticking with the stock wheels or going all big chromie gangsta Chip Foose? :) I'm thinking you are more of a traditionalist based on your truck setup.

Thanks. It's a little hot rod for the car but they'll wind up on the truck eventually.

I've replaced every single brake part... master cylinder, residual valve, hardlines and soft, calipers, rotors, drums, wheel cylinders, shoes, springs and pins.

Every single suspension and steering part.... springs, shocks, swaybars and every bushing, kingpin, tie rods, and steering idler bushing.

Every single fuel part except the carb. New tank, hardlines, pump and filter.

I've rebuilt the transmission linkage from top to bottom. I've adjusted the shifter, clutch and changed the fluid. Change motor mounts and transmission mount.

I replaced the water pump, thermostat, belt, and hoses upper and lower. I have a new radiator if i need it.

New battery, wheels and tires, oil filter and wheel bearings.

I've done a 4 wheel alignment. Pressure washed and painted the entire chassis.

I would like to drive the car out of the neighborhood now. The only thing left on my list is tune the carb, timing, points, valve adjustment and compression check.

Might be time to leave the neighborhood.

Thanks. It's my goal in life.
