  2. Thanks Coupe, Been working a ton of overtime so havenot had the chance to put a lot of time in it. I do see the light at the end of the tunnel now. I painted it once already Coupe in the garage, had lil bugs decide they like the smell of the alcohol in the paint that is why it is back wet sanded downwaiting to go to the booth.

    The hour of fresh paint before bugs got in it and sporting 4 Lugs

  8. looking good.. great color.. wheels look great on it..

    what lowwering kit is that? perfect stance. would like to get mine sitting like that..

    what did you do with the pony wheels?
  9. Thanks guys! Wheels are tucked away along with about 4 other sets of 4 lug wheels. The lowering kit is SVE from Late Model Restoration. It said not recommended for Converts but boy it made it squat nice. I have nice clearance in the wheel wells. The spring kit sells for $89.00. Looking forward to putting her back together and getting some street time with the new motor. I need to tune the cpu.... researching that process.
