that is after the clear and some coloring sanding. still got to do something about those new rear springs. They aren't settling much. Probably Maiers if the fix.

Assembly is taking much longer than I had planned but slowly working towards complete. Got the roll bar and headliner in so I can proceed with more interior install.

So what are you running for rear springs anyway? I think I hear the wife asking if you have seen her laundry clips! ..... ;>)

she willingly loaned those clips! The rear springs were part of total performance suspension package I got and they are too tall with the 3 inch front drop. What you see are with a 1 inch lowering block. I just swapped to some 2 inch drop and by the time they settle an inch or two it will be a perfect stance.

Finally got some road time tonight. Got a few bugs to work out like the Zbar that is bending due to the center force clutch but small stuff. 2013-07-15_17-58-34_476.jpg 2013-07-15_17-59-25_648.jpg 2013-07-15_17-56-27_808.jpg

Nice! What are you doing inside would be the next pics to share. How 'bout some driveline info?

As another poster stated, "keep 'em coming"!

The car looks great. I would have gone without the eyes or the big yellow decal on the fender. But that's just me.

Does Centerforce make a Long style pressure plate? Your Z bar issues sound like what I used to be plagued with back in the day when I ran a stout Zoom Long style PP. I broke or bent every piece of linkage in the clutch pedal setup over the years when I ran that!

I left all of that behind when I changed to a 11" Centerforce Dual Friction Diaphragm style, have never looked back or regreted it. Pedal effort is so light you have to remove the pedal assist spring under the dash so the pedal does not end up staying on the floor.

P.S. Car looks great, my dearly departed "Cleveland Rocks" '70 HT was Imron Black the second time and black lacquer the first. Lot of work both to put it in black and a lot to keep it looking nice once there, but love a black cat.

For now just some racing seats with the remainder stock stuff. This winter I am having something custom done for the entire interior. Power via 408 stroker with assorted build up goodies, top loader, 9 inch 3:50 N case Detroit locker, JBA headers, 4 wheel disc.

Nice! What are you doing inside would be the next pics to share. How 'bout some driveline info?
