Holy moly. With a lot of help from all of you I am amazed at what my wife and I have accomplished so far this winter. Here's the skinny
Complete new front suspension ✔
Dual outlet stainless header ✔
Custom dual side exit exhaust ✔
Stone gaurd✔
Battery tray✔
Over 500 hrs sanding, grinding every dam part!!!!! Shot with single stage satin black, engine bay. Moving wiring to clean up engine bay and fire wall, chrome valve cover. New sending units for water and oil. Billet shock towers and chrome strut tower brace. Waiting on the DUI distributor ( was going to go duraspark changed mind) new carb from champion (formerly pony carbs) , hotchkis stage II shocks, and harmonic balencer. Getting close to firing her up!!!! So many hours left but loving it all. Thanks again everyone
