    My current 7.5" has 2.79:1! I do plan on swapping in 3.50:1 as soon as I can afford them. :nice:

    You wish it had a 7-1/2"! Those old 6 banger rears were 7-1/4"! I actually blew the spiders gears up on one of those in a 1970 Maverick with a 170 6 cylinder 3 speed!!!

    Are you sure about that? Everything I've seen on the I6's indicates that its a 7.5" integral rear carrier type.....:shrug:

    Hey Pak!

    I remember stripping Chepie down that far twice! Remember what happened last time I started a thread about topless cars........


    I finished the Dash in COBRASK8, including the two body color stripes.

    I didnt do anything real exciting, just opened up the 289 that came(separately) with my '68. I found out its .060 over, rusted bores, oil pan full of water, bent pump shaft, clogged pickup, uselessly corroded timing cover, ground-down rod cap pads, and a C9 block......its actually a 302. Almost the entire thing so far is garbage. One thing that did come out well was my repainting of the ash tray door with satin black laquer and stripping/painting the engine pullies gloss black.

    Sweet, looks alot like your original vision except you added some white to it. So how did you apply it?

    BTW, what do you guys think about this BMW color? It's got that blue steel gunmetal quality I have been searching for.

    For me, the color seems a bit too grey, though an argent hood with dark blue egding would be quite a color scheme..

    The other stripe is grey, which will match the "Gurney Stripes" i plan to put on the nose of the car, along with grey meatballs for numbers. No Le Mans stripes. I also plan on having the same stripe in the carpeting in front of the seats. Having a theme, as well as the brake calipers are already painted dark orange!
