Crummy fitting, but they said they would send out a replacement.

Sorry to the purists, but I just didn't care to be the same. If you are considering changing to bigger wheels, here is a big shout out to DodgeStang and the list he has put together for fitment options! The feel of the ride is vastly different for the better!

Fitment is clear here:


Shocks were a little at attention here still.

Oops, those pesky chrome moldings on the fender lips kinda got in the way. That and I need to not fly over known places that have dips for drainage.




Easy enough to fix! And are all off now, which again looks better to me.

Then today happened!

FWIW FRPP has discontinued the BOSS Valve covers on the 363 that are black and finned looking with a flat top. I like these too, so no complaints.

When I saw the pic of the cone style air filter I wondered if a pic of an induction forcing tool was on it's way.

Nice!

Will I get to see the car at the Loveland MCA National in July? I am assuming that the Novi propelled motor won't be in it but I would still like to see the car and your progress.

Looks like you are well on ur way! Are you thinking about doing the Shelby/arning drop to the front suspension? Or have you got other plans in store?

trkpny2 I didn't even know about this show, glad you said something! There is nothing about the car that would win currently, paint is a 15+ footer, still awaiting headers... But I'm looking into the options to attend now.

69bosssvt I am waiting on the template to show up in the mail from j persons and it will be done soon. Also rolling the fenders once that tool shows up.

It has el cheapo Monroe shocks, so I need to address all three things before too long as the tires are getting messed up.

Car looks great. Those wheels are sharp, what size are they? The Paxton should be alot of fun.
