Time for an update...

We finished the engine revisions and got it back in. It sounds totally different that it did but it does run better than before. Due to weather and other factors, we have not been able to drive it much since getting it back together.

A pic of what the engine looks like now. We had to loose the 'vintage Chevrolet script' valve covers due to the roller rockers but it still looks good.

We are now doing the daunting task of body work (not my favorite thing...).
Working on the fenders and front end at this time. Rear fenders are next then to the doors.

Does anyone have an idea if there is a template for the shape if the top portion of the lower grill??? The top of this one is ~1" behind the lower part of the upper grill. We are working on matching them up...

Currently having the windshield frame blues... The one we have appears to be too rusted to salvage and getting it apart in the center is not working out too well either...

We will be tearing it down in the next month or so to get everything sand blasted. Then it will be time for some primer and filler...

You've come a long way. Your hard work is looking good. Way to go.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Nice work Thad.

What rear are you using? Also, what is your steering column from? Did you need to do any modifications to fit it in, like shortening it? I have one from a '93 Blazer I'm thinking about using. I am also using a 700r4, so would be just fine with the column shift.

Thanks, and once again, really nice work!

The steering column is from an 85 chevy van, the rear end and springs are from a 1993 Ford Explorer. We added a 1" adapter to each side to get the width we needed due to wide rear tires (255 70R 15).

Daunting body work task....
Well it has been 9 months of cut, patch, re-patch, weld, ect and it is now almost ready for the epoxy primer... Yea.
No pics to share this time but soon.

Looking at gaskets, seals, weather stripping, ect.
I am looking to get a few things from Steele Rubber Products and the rest from Jim Carter... Are there better sources?

You've dealt with two of the best but there are others. Sometimes it just depends on what the item is your looking for.
Congrats on your hard work. It'll surely be worth it and will last a long time.
