            Finally changed out the 1982 asbestos front brake shoes and repacked the bearings. Also fixed a leak in the rear brake lines that I never could find. I love my new Forward Lift!

                She already has a 360 in her. Ready to build a 360 that looks like a pre ‘68 273. Gonna call it a 360 Commando! This is a factory V8 console car so it is cool out of the gate.

                  We embark on a 500 mile round trip to a weekend and a show in the mountains in the morning. Coronet, Duster, Dart, 66 Hemi Satellite and a CRV heading out at 5:30 am! Wish us good fortune!

                    The 66 Valiant is going back together. Long journey.

                      Looking really good. Think most guy's get to the point on the restore process and give up. It takes a special person to stick with it. When finished you can look back at all the pic's and say what a job. It is a part of history you are restoring. Good luck and keep us posted on the progress. Good job. :thumbsup:

                        Yup! I agree with blue69runner. I’ve been lurking on the SPI forum and following your build. It’s going to be another nice one!
