Progress made on the 12th

I continue to install engine bay components. I did vary from original as I converted to front discs (I want this car to stop!) I have restored the original drums and components in the event I ever sell this car. Got the dash in today as well as the steering column. Still awaiting the carb line from inline tube as well as some wiper motor grommets. Hope to have the car running by the end of next week. Gas tank and exhaust goes in next week.

Does anyone know where I can get an OEM oil filler cap? And a shifter ball that will fit the muncie? Of all the parts to have problems finding!

Comments and suggestions are certainly welcome.

Thanks!

Progress for the week

Well, made some progress on the engine bay, just need some dust shields. Installed the gas tank, had to modify and the exhaust, again, had to modify. Finished up the brakes and fuel lines, finally got the correct carb line. Going to try to start the car on Tuesday.

Rocketguy is an unknown quantity at this point
The car looks fantastic!

Really nice work.

Have you tried to post the pictures full size lately?

I'm so glad you put disc brakes on it.

Posting full sized pics?

I'm not sure how, do I need to go through photo bucket or just post them from my files?
