  1. Roll Bar, Seat Pans & Shock Tower Hole

    Installed the roll bar, seat pans and cut a hole for the shock tower conduit.

    Roll bar.. (bad picture quality)

    Shock tower conduit for A/C lines, one heater hose and the battery cable.

    Got too tired. Will finish it tomorrow.
     
  2. Awsome progress, I have a couple pics of 315 35 17's mocked up if you care to see them.
     
  3. Shock Tower Conduit

    Finished the Shock Tower Conduit!

  4. So what are you doing for front suspension? You've left the shock towers installed, but have made them unserviceable. Haven't seen that before. Oh, and your work looks great!
     

  5. Unique Performance Coilover for the front. The upper shock mount point is very small. Will fit in nice and tight beside the tube. See picture of a finished car.

    And thanks, got a lot to do!

  6. Clutch Pedal Bearing Assembly

    I installed the clutch/brake pedal roller bearing assembly. I thought this was going to be difficult. However with the assembly out of the car, it was a 15 min job.

  7. :jaw: Good Lord Man!
    You are doing everything that I want to do to my 67 Fastback and then some. You are certainly going about it better and faster than I am. I'm in Wichita Falls, so if I'm ever in your area I'd be glad to take a look at her. Great Job!! :nice:
     
  8. TY. You are more than welcome to come take a look. Leave me an E-Mail.
     
  9. Brake/Clutch Pedal Backing Plate

    I fitted the Brake/Clutch pedal backing plate. Good thing I test fitted the Brake/Clutch assembly. 3 hole were cross threaded. And the backing plate holes did not align correctly. I used a die grinder to enlarge the holes to fit.

    Also welded the hydraulic clutch backing plate. No hole in the firewall would align. So I welded up the non used ones, and used the die grinder to add the ones I needed.

  10. Car is lookin great!! Im just happy you didnt let the morons at Unique build the car..I have seen first hand their work quality and its sub par in my opinion. Their old paint jobs used to look like someone did it with a roller.
     
  11. Unique Performance

    I must admit though, they did come up with some good ideas. I have not seen anything from them that I would consider "sub par" :shrug:. Doesn't mean that it isn't so.

    However, I THINK that my car has a better builder :D :SNSign:

    BTW, TY :nice: :nice:
     
  12. They do have some good ideas, but I feel their work is terrible. May have gotten better over the last while but I have known people that worked there and seen the stuff first hand and its not great for a $200k car. Id expect a lot more from their end.
     
  13. Shelby Pedals

    I also installed the Shelby Pedals.

  14. I may have missed this info, but what kind of set up are you using for the rear suspension? I was thinking of using the Airbar set up from Air Ride Technologies in my 67. I posted this question on the forum earlier tonight, so far I got one input from xoxbxfx.
     
  15. I am going to use the coil over suspension from UP. Some people believe that it causes a binding situation. Not sure what "binding" means, but I think it is better than the leaf spring/air bag setup for MY needs.

    However, air bag is not at all bad. Hope I didn't misunderstand your question. Just Googled the Airbag system from Air Ride and it looks nice. May be better than what I am contemplating!
     
  16. Tail Panel Welding

    Welded up the original tail panel gas cap hole:

  17. Fiberglass Tail Panel

    Mocked up the fiberglass tail panel from UP:

  18. Lenses in the panel

    I installed the lenses in the panel.

    Only to find out I committed a faux paux:

    [​IMG]

    I will try to fix it. Hope I didn't trash the whole panel.
     
  19. I installed the 22 gal fuel cell, trunk hinges, trunk lock, bumper and rear valance.

    [​IMG]

    Still looking for 68 hinges:

    You can just barely see the tank below the valance:
