glad you're here. My mom had one of those in nest egg blue, I went over to her house one day only to discover that she basically gave it away in the early 90s. I would've loved to have kept it since it was hers and a V8
Good luck with the build

Parts waiting to be installed. I have some fab work that is being done right now and then powder coat for a few parts.

Test fit of the shock towers and brace. I have to open up the shock tower bolt hole to fit a 3/8 bolt. Everything went on smooth and the brace fits perfect. Just another testament to how good of shape the body and frame is in. no sagging towers or anything underneath out of place. I'm going to be powdercoating the brace in comp yellow that will match the lower control arms and spindle.

Got my spindles back with the brake mounts put on. Overall a good job. A pre mock up showed one of the calipers tilted slightly so that will need to be fixed. One thing that blows my mind is that they cut way too much of the spindle off to get the dust cap to fit. It's actually below the castle nut. Could have been 1/4 in above. Why take off more than you need to in any situation. Haven't asked why yet, just need to learn to do it myself.

Anyway, once its all square they go to powdercoat along with other parts and we start installing. See above for pics of the brake set up. Ready to pound on them. Next up is new brake pedals, cylinders and lines. Fun...

Got a lot of pics coming. I'm not going full restoration at this time but I am cleaning and painting as much as I can. Almost have paint done to get the front suspension on. In the mean time. Here are my brake fittings (waiting on a few). I'm doing full stainless steel for everything. Nuts, blocks, lines, etc...

The close up of the Titan fittings is for my Autometer Pro Comp Brake Pressure Gauge. Titan has some amazing stuff at great prices. No I don't work for them, just really liked their stuff. The others are a Japanese 4 way from GK Brakes for the fronts and pressure gauge and the 3 way is made by AeroFlow from Australia and that will got the rear and a pressure switch for brake lights. Wish Americans used more stainless.
