    We’ve done the easy part, Gary. We still have to get it back up and in place, bolted up, and everything connected! Lol

    Really nice work on the fuse and relay panels Brian. It’s handy to have the front end fuses and relays close to their loads. Great job.

    Continuing work on the frontend

    Been working on setting and blending the grill and bumper surrounds. I am surprised at how poorly many of the body parts fit on the fiberglass body. I'm not sure if this is unique to this vehicle...

    It's going to be very nice when you're done, Brian. With all the work, you might consider putting an LS or LT motor in it. They idle/run very smooth, have lots of power, don't leak oil, and are...

    Deck Lid Problem Resolved

    We've had a problem that the deck lid rear passenger corner was a 1/4" above the adjacent body panel, and the edge around the corner (about 5") was high, just not as high as the corner. It looked to...
