Re: Let me start!!!!!!!!

Mike, The rear seat area That is cool, I am leaving my rear seat out but it will probably look like a cheap version of Jim's (A/FX) Cyclone :roll: I intend to put removable panels held in place with Dzus fasteners and would like to use aluminum plates as a firewall if I can find some cheap plate, g...

Re: 61 sedean wheel well coating? Paint

Re: Wiring ideas for your car

Re: Lavron's '64 Build Thread

Cooling system filled and no leaks so far, not sure when it gets some pressure but will wait and see, I always like to make it hard checking for leaks by spilling whatever I am filling with all over the place :roll: https://cometcentral.com/photos/images/2020/08/06/526addb8cc67a3e0b889d5773a1532c1.j...

Probably the same people that decided the engine was just a component to change out never rebuild :roll: they want you to buy new and not fix. Loman we are now old enough t...

we didn't win but had a whale of a time
I think that is all that matters, winning is nice but having a good time speaks for itself.
