    Today I got the door interior black painted and got the door latches all in and adjusted. Latches cleaned up real nice with Evaporust so I just adjusted and lubed them up. New door VIN decal too.

      Today I installed the quarter extensions and rear valance then pushed it outside so I could get some painting done. Too cold outside to paint. All the bumper brackets, k-member, and misc have a coat of semi gloss on them now.

        Rain put a dent in my painting today so I worked on the outside mirrors. The drivers side was loose so I spread the the holders and pulled the cables a bit to tighten them up and crimped them back down. New glass with DMT gaskets and installed. Also got one tail light bezel finished. PITA to mask off.

              Rebuilt the wiper linkage and installed. Mated the engine and trans together and made a makeshift dolly and in they went.

                A little bling to start the day. NOS antenna assembly and Pentastar installed. Looking good underneath.

                  Kinda got side tracked with parts stash of E-Body stuff I picked up a few weeks ago. Finally got back to work on the car this weekend.

                  Front suspension coming together. Only part that's original is the lower control arms. Those are reinforced, QA1 uppers, Hellwig 1-1/4 sway bar, PST 1.03 torsion bars. 11-3/4" caliper adapters. Ordering the Blistens tomorrow now that they are no longer back ordered.

                    I can't wait to hear how the ride is with your new front end components.

                    I am looking forward to it. I did similar mods to my 72 Rallye and it was fun to drive, but this one is a step further.

                          Working on getting the engine compartment stuff done before I install the front bumper. Brackets, pulley's, battery tray, AC compressor, and NOS PS pump.
