    Lookin good man. That umi rear bar setup looks pretty serious, guess that should help the rear track better.

    Thanks bruh!! When I stepped back to snap the pic I was like damn! Looks "all bizness". This bu will never put any of these mods to the test tho. I really got it for the "looks". The rear girdle, brace kit, ect were all just to wow dudes at the shows. Thanks for checking back in bruh!

    Brought the axles in for a Lil sand blast. Looks good. Gonna lightly paint em and re install. I packed the wheel bearings with the "good stuff" also. Backing plate screws have been swapped and I have the e brake cable brackets in place. Coming together nicely. Ill do a set of Moser axles later on. That cash can be spent elsewhere for now..

    Got the rear all buttoned up. Fluids in and rear cover is on. I also picked up some needed tools, Flotech headers, Stage 8 bolts lock bolts for the headers and collectors and Remflex gaskets...

    You dont realize how much you need a vice until you dont have it handy. Grabbed this for $63 at sears

    A tubing bender kit. imma go ahead an get the Eastwood flare kit later. Didnt wanna spend the cash for al that now when so much other stuff is needed. This kit has everything I need to do the job nicely.

    installed the vise on my work bench and Im ready to get to work..

    [​IMG]

    Practice run. Looks just like the factory flare.. Im re doing the lines with new tubing and ends from eastwood. Just wanted to practice on the factory lines..If I dont get new lines, I'll at least get new threaded ends for the 3/16" factory lines. These ends are so rounded of. No bueno.. :(

    [​IMG]

    cut and reflared the stock line

    [​IMG]

    new line

    [​IMG]

    New headers for a SBC 350..I will break the new motor in with the old headers and then install the Flotech's..

    New STAGE 8 header lock bolts and collector flange locking setup. Ive got the serpentine bracketsall powdercoated up, and picked up a new belt.

    Flange lock setup..

    Also picked up an aluminum upper radiator hose. i had my og hose made 4 years back, and it looks like this setups pretty close to the one in my elco. A lil trimming and an elbo hose end and it will be great..
    Side by side of the new pipe and my og setup in my elco..

    A little trimming job and it will be perfect. im not chopping it all up. It will set in there just like my Elco's pipe sits. Imma wait to trim it down once the radiator is in the Bu. That way its set up based on that car.



    Other parts ordered:
    1 mini starter
    2 Dizzy
    3 valve cover gaskets
    4 fuel pump
    5 90 degree water neck

    Looking good so far. Still chugging along on the wells. They are ready for wet sand now. i have 3 days off this weekend and will get a move on em. Should be ordering the aluminum heads and getting the short block started in a couple weeks. Thanks for checking back....

    Thanks Dave!! Can't find the link but they sell em here...

    Now this isn't a direct fit bruh. It will need to be trimmed. I got a 90 deg elbow for the radiator inlet/outlet. I want mine setup just like my Elco.. Polish it up and it's good to go...

    Preciate' that love bruh! I have some more line I can practice on and get used to using the tool. YouTube has some really good vids on using this style of double flare tool. Won't know how it seals til I drop the rear in tho. Wish me luck!!!

    Thanks fam!!! Trying to get everything together before the block is ready. Then just start dropping stuff in.




    Thanks for checkin back bruh! Like I was saying to Saint...Trying to get everything I can think of, tools to make things easier, oils, assembly grease, break in oils, and every lil thing I can think of while I figure out what lil motor to run (355). Then assemble it all hopefully have and less time going back and forth to the speed shops. Of course I wont remember it all tho. Thanks again bruh! You guys keep me goin!

    Picked up a few other things today.

    Some speed bleeders for the new calipers..
