I did, I didn't think the drop would lower it enough, so I went ahead and cut a 1/4 coil while I had it out. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

Swapped in some new reproduction vent window frames with new vent window handles, guides, and all new rubber pieces. I also repainted my dash with good old 1613 semi flat black yesterday.

I was surfing around the net, and came upon this link that talked about the need to occasionally ad grease to the steering box: http://www.stangerssite.com/lubrication.html
Seemed easy enough, and I had the right grease in my garage, so I gave it a go...

Took all of 15 minutes, and wow what a difference (my steering box accepted over 3oz. of grease, so I'm guessing it was nearly dry)! Steering has noticeably less "play," and is much smoother.

If you have 15 minutes to spare, definitely recommend this maintenance!

Car on jack stands. Complete front end, front window forward, stripped to frame/inner fenders. Next step is start drilling out spot welds and replace front frame rails and floors.

Sad thing is it looks like I have done nothing! I have welded a lot and made everything stronger and smoothed out the firewall a little. Last I made everything ready for my new front to come.

Today Ernie received a new Moser 9" with disc brakes. For the front we did a disc brake conversion with '67 discs (a bit stronger than the '65 discs).

Last month - TCP subframe connectors & 2.5" exhaust, x-pipe, & Flowmaster 50 series. Big improvements - love it.

Designed and built a sheet metal shield for my tri-y's on the 428 FE to supply warm air to the air cleaner for faster warm-ups. Bruce

I got my 2.5 inch Flowmaster exhaust hooked up last week. Love it so far its loud with 40s. Fit really good. Hooking it to my FPA headers. Pipe got mashed some trying to line up to H. But it still has a more power than the old 2 inch I had that was smashed over the axle.
