So the last shipment came in, the last one for a while I imagine, and hope.. hehe

Brown mass back floor carpet, pre bent and flared brake lines from The Right Stuff/Getdiscbrakes.com and rubber brake lines aswell, the smaller things are parking brake cables and brake shoes and pads, torq converter cover, timing light, vaacum and pressure gauge, timing needle, belts, plugs, wires, thermostat and a hundred small things... should get this car to feel a little more finished soon!

Stay tuned!

Haven't really been too active, I've been working on my 4x4 a lot and traveling, recently.

today I put in the interior finally, fits good and looks right, got some wrinkles i need to work out though but it will look great after that...

put the fuel tank in and behold, it holds fuel, its a bit rusty inside but I hope it won't cause issues with clogging the strainer or filter..., will have to see about that...

Did I miss something here? Did you paint that car?

nah you missed nothing, I've buffed the paint a little, it looks alright on the photos I assume, but it's nothing to admire. If I like how it turns out this summer and I manage to save some money I'll paint it next winter... I'd do a little better work and keep it black, I like how the black tones with the light brown interior, I'd kill for sweet polished alloy rims or simply chrome, and buff up the chrome on the car, should look stunning.

I won't do any more painting except the undercoating and maybe some touch ups from where seams are visible like where the quarters meet the rocker panels etc... But it being black helps a lot, doesn't show very much :)

Well it looks great in the pictures. I'm shore you'll run across some rims you like for it there's certainly enough of them out there that fit these cars it's just a matter of taste and budget. Keep up the good work and keep us posted
