That was $400.00 Canadian, not super cheap but way nicer than I could have done....

Didn't it though? Couldn't get it to start last night, popping and farting - in the middle of the night the light bulb turned on in my brain(Fords better idea??) - the distributor turns the opposite direction of a Chevy, I had the plug wires on all wrong. Corrected that this morning, bada boom, bada bing, started right up!

Engine is running, all systems working optimally Making 70lbs oil pressure, the only internal mod to it so far was the high volume Melling oil pump. Those glaspacks and 2 1/2" exhaust really bark - I like it!!
Doors are on and the rest of the Dynamat on them and the floor. Rest of the body parts go on tomorrow, windows, and seats, then maybe a test drive....

That looks awesome!

Oil filter brand choice aside, a Napa Gold filter would be black and would blend in to the engine . I don't have much like for FRAM oil filters, though.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
