So ready to start reassembling - got 3 of 4 upper and lower A-arms disassembled.  I've sandblasted and painted the uppers.  Taking the lowers apart really sucks.  Just came in from the garage and I'm tired.  Trying to decide whether to start at the front or back first.  Think I'll start on the front just because I'm closer to having some parts ready - still have to purchase new springs for the big block, though.

Been a while - been busy with 2nd daughter's wedding.  But I have had time to get a few small things accomplished.  Been working on the headlight assemblies - but I haven't downloaded any pics yet.  Here's a shot of engine compartment progress.  I have decided (with the help of family) that the new color will be corvette yellow.

Agreed!ApproveSmileThere are certain advantages working on a project that wasn't original - such as completely changing all colors!

 Bob, do you have any pics of the new header install? I bet there's lots of folks here that would like to see, for one, where it is, and two, how it goes in. Lots of these cars have header rivet problems, so it would be kewl if you had some pics to share on yours. Thumbs Up

Worked a little more today.  Trying to decide if I should leave the chrome versus repainting.  Kind of like it, but certainly not original appearing.
