Back at it.... finished cleaning the fire wall and 1 coat of por down, waiting on the correct color for the door jams and upper cowl. I'll tone down the shine with a few coats of satin.


We planned on notching the cross member for oil pan removal. I really like how Tim had his done for the 67 so I had my guy copy it with added Jack point and tow hook.Came out great!!!! Hope to have it mounted later this week.

Subframe installed with Speed Tech solid bushings.


Started getting the front suspension together..... Afco solid bushings top and bottom, Global West offset cross shafts and Afco low friction ball joints should keep the front loose. Santhuff shocks and landrum springs to handle the wheel stands.

It's been a long battle but the steering is finally coming together.

The first problem I had was with the tie rods.... I planned on using the Baer tracker kit but had a problem with the inner tie rods being to long. After a lot if back and forth I decided to build inners. I'm happy how they came out.


I also ran into a issue with the column being compressed leaving a 1/2" gap between the rag joint and flange. We couldn't figure out why since there was no evidence of a front end collision. I think this happened from the body bushings being so bad.

I put a strap around the flange and tried to pull it out with no luck. I was able to slide the column down and everything fits great with no bind.


Gonna tackle the headliner this weekend then she's ready for the chassis shop.

I may be too late and I'm sure you know better than me, but do you want a headliner in the car while it's at the chassis shop?

Looking good, by the way.

Thanks!!!!!

Initial thinking was it would be easier to install without the cage. Since I'm doing it myself worse case it's $70 if it gets damaged....I really don't want to pull the rear glass and plan on running a 12 point so the extra bars will make the back tough. I'll cover it with cardboard and the guy doing the cage said he will use a welding blanket.

I thought about all of that, too. The one car I was involved with, my partner did the headliner after the roll bar. I have a car currently that I'd like to leave the headliner in for reasons you state. I'll be doing that rollbar, so I'll only have myself to blame if I burn it down!
