New progress on the beast.

Been working on the suspension and brakes, lots of grinding to make the GT front brakes fit the Foose 17x8 wheels in front but it is getting there. No problems in the rear with the 17x9'shttp://i67.tinypic.com/ht6vpe.jpg

Re: New progress on the beast.

Looking good. Ya can't beat progress. Is that a new door or did you recondition it? I'm thinking about reprinting my car mostly because my drivers door is just about shot. I've heard the repos aren't that great.

Re: New progress on the beast.

Thanks Billy. The fenders and doors are repops, the fender to door gap is good but the door to quarter is going to need some work, it's 3/8" at top 0" center and 3/16" bottom.

Re: New progress on the beast.

I am guessing that since I went wide 17x8 in front that it was an issue for fitment with the wheels I chose, but some time and a belt sander gave me the clearance I needed. Time to repaint and lesson learned. FIT FIRST then finish.http://i63.tinypic.com/b7ns3p.jpg

It may not look like I have done much from the last post but I have since then modified both front calipers to fit my wheels and done some media blasting on other parts, sorted through boxes of parts deciding what to toss out, and just a general clean-up of the garage. I had also found Headlight assembly's on Ebay and ordered them just to get another bad part but they are taking care of it and sending a replacement.

​Thanks jgmartin it is planned to go to work this weekend so I can media blast the areas that need attention and to spray the underside...... It is supposed to rain Saturday but I am hoping to get the blasting done and try to seal the beast up before I put it back in the garage.

That's not a run, it's a racing stripe.

​Found a spot for the new fuse block, the glove box was pretty much useless anyway.

My DUAL SYNC Distributor finally showed up after a multi month backorder. I think that Holley had to manufacture it because I could not find a single vendor that had it in stock.

All progress has been into the negative...It is coming apart to plumb brake lines and the rest of the fuel system then some paint in the engine bay.
