    i'd like to know what was the overall time span? if you don't mind.

    my dad just bought an 87 SS and i'm going to be revamping my 79 since its getting a little warmer and i have a garage now. you've given me a pretty good boost in the motivation department and some great ideas.

    Warren,

    Thanks for including UMI on your project car. You have some very detailed pictures and nice looking bracketry.

    We got those aluminum mounts out for you. Sorry about the mix up.

    Good luck on the build :)

    Preciate' the love fellas!! Really keeps me goin. UMI Ryan--Thank you VERY much for looking into that, and taking care of it for me.

    My Elco project is on hold while I research spots to do a powered moonroof. Then paint and installation of suspension parts on that project. In the mean time I got started on the Bu. Time wise... I got the car around August/November I think. I only get to do things to the actual car maybe once every other month-I'm in Cali and the car is in Arizona. The wells took actually about 3 days, the rear end took about then same. Main thing was waiting on packages. The brakes were done a while back. I was waiting to find a Bu while working on my El and SS, and started stacking parts and cleaning em up as I went along. The car itself has a loooooooong ways to go. Interior painting, dash swap, gauge install, paint, headliner ect ect.. Once I get the 355 next month and paint, things will go by quickly. Gotta have this ready by may cuz I gotta get back on my Elco for the Elco Thang Vegas run in October. With 90% of the parts purchased, I should be able to get it finished. My pace is nice and steady. My problem (not really a prob) is that I pass a lot of the finished work on to my club members projects. That's just me. But imma focus and get this bu done and start in on the El. I've already filled the holes in the wells and started the first phase of block sanding em. Should be ready to paint by Friday...

    Thanks for checking back!!
