      The car has been out of the shop for about a week now, the engine is still in it's break in phase with break in oil for the next 1,000 miles, so no hard driving or any RPM over 3,500 for the next while.

      Nothing has changed with the exterior looks, but I am working on a 1" bolt on lift for it at the moment, more details on that once I have the materials in hand.

      Added some para-cord to the handle on the console, kinda matches the exterior color!


      Hard to believe the car has this many miles! But a freshly built engine means there are plenty of miles ahead! Less than 500 miles on the rebuild, but 200+ on the chassis!


      I'm hoping to get some decent pics with the DSLR once time permits, I'll be sure to post those!

      Happy to see a warm reception since it's been a good while that the car has been off the road and off the forums!

      So I started a small project last night, I purposely saved a shock mount a while back to base a template off of for a 1" lift kit I'm working on.


      I think I saved this film about 5 years ago knowing I would use it one day, have a whole box of it actually. . . used a sheet of it to make a rough outline of the shock mount.


      Knocked the studs out as I'll be needing longer ones, probably actually use grade 8 bolts and weld them in place.


      Now I'm just waiting on a 1" thick piece of high density polyethylene to make the finished product from. Once the fronts are done it will be much easier to make the rears.

      That's rad. I hope to do something similar in the summer. Perhaps I'll find a way to take advantage of the R&D you've already done though

      Love seeing this thing back on the road! Still babying it until the next oil change, but otherwise all is good!
