Looks great! I see you got the rubber bumper to replace the stock bump stop. What wheels are you looking at getting?

I really dont know yet, i do like the bg gassers i have on my 67. Im not quiet sure style wise what ill go with, may do some kind of silver wheels as the car will be blue...Or i may do a blue black combo style. I havent even started with the body other then the fastback conversion so i have plenty to do

That's a nice looking suspension and brake project. Look forward to the feed back.

Not today but a while ago, ripped out the PS pump and the rest of the O/E power steering.
The engine bay seems less busy now plus freed up a bit of HP.

Cruised for about 2 hours in the 67.....1 hour each direction but im getting some substancial vibration out of the pass side front i think.......I could feel it shaking the steering wheel and i could hear some noise...Not clue what it couled be.,.,.Just recently alligned it and set the toe in and it tracks great....All the stuff is brand new......Im wondering if it could be the tires or maybe shocks but i doubt it so now i have to try to figure that out

Any tips?

I would revisit the balance of the front tires and wheels by having them "road force balanced". I had a balance issue for years until I heard of this procedure. It's a matter of comparing the balance characteristics of the rim with those of it's mounted tire. Once the OOB (out-of-balance) is determined, the tire is rotated on the rim to achieve the lowest OOB. Each combo is given a score with the lowest number being the least OOB.
Therefore, one combo may receive a score of 10, with the others being, 15, 25, and 30.
In my case, I had one rim from new (20 years old) the worst of the bunch and happened to be mounted up front (left). After having all 4 combinations Road Force balanced, I place the least two (based on lowest out-of-balance score) mounted up front. The remaining two went on the rear with each mounted to counter-balance their diagonal counter-part in front. Using the examples above. 10 and 15 would go up front. #10 on the left and #15 on the right. #30 would be mounted right rear to counter #10 and #25 on the left rear to counter #15. At least, this was my reasoning and it seems to have worked.

This sounds confusing I can imagine, but, once figured it out, the worst of my vibrations went away. If I were buying new rims today, I would have each checked for runout and balance before mounting tires. And we all know tires are not perfect, as well.

Hope my experience works for you. BTW, not all shops are familiar with Road Force balancing, so check around. May cost more, but, I was so grateful.

Finished building the 408w...then dropped it in. The adjustable motor mounts made that job ridiculously easy...

Since I don't have hvac, I decided to make my own cabin filters out of foam and aluminum mesh. Attached them to the cowl openings to keep from getting all the outside dirt and debris from flying into the car. It was happening a lot on my drives recently with all the dusty winds here in the desert.

Went on an almost 5 hour drive in my 65 yesterday - Tucson and back for a doctor's appointment. On the way back home, I stopped in Benson and ate at the Horseshoe Cafe. Parked out front about where the American flag is located on the curb, and got a kick out of folks doing double takes when they saw the car parked there.
