any progress?
Hey man..... I am stuck.... since covid works been hard cause there is only 2 of us. Now we finally have a extra person but my wife and I had a baby girl in Dec! Our son is turning 18, n our middle child is now 11.... we started all the way back over.
So happy to be a father again even this late in the game.
But the cutlass is still sitting. I did get my tubular radiator support in for mock up. My drive train is pretty much all done. Except my grand national 8.5 rear needs built....
Hows everything with u been? Funny how things work I was literally just thinking about u.

So it's been awhile,
Life has other plans sometimes.
But I just spent ALOT. waiting on the holley billet pump which should be here Friday. I still need lines and fittings but I am on my way. I almost have everything to get the cutlass where I want it to be. I will post more pictures this weekend.

Just wanted the world to know I haven't given up!!!

Thanks guys.
My son turns 18 in a few weeks. My other daughter is 11 and we decided instead of being bored in our older yrs to start over lol.. I am glad we did.
This car wasn't supposed to turn into this... it was just a daily driver....never got to even do that before I tore into it.
I have other hobbies like offloading and guns so my money gets spread thin. I can tell u the stimulus money we got that we didn't need went to my car.

My wife regularly reminds me that I bought and drove a fully-functional car home and then took it apart. Seven years ago.

Seems I had the same conversation not long ago... along with the statement that I can never die because I have so many projects.. but my wife n I agreed I could finish the car..b4 I buy anymore..

So new problem but something I can easily overcome.

Holley fuel line
Holley carb
Holley billet bracket

And they don't fit (play well with each other)
Wtf!!
So I will simply make my own bracket and see about sending this one back to summit.
Also glad I am I am mocking everything up before I install it in the car.

Do the pieces fit individually? What about changing up the order of assembly?
