That is a hell of a project.

Rear gear ratio should be 3.21 in a 9-1/4.
 
Yeah But I am looking forward to it. Here is the 2 doors I got for it.

Yesterday, with my son help he pulled the old spark plugs and put new ones in for me since I have been sick over the weekend.

Today he pulled the gas tank out took a few pictures and said it wasn't too bad no holes or anything except for rust. After we clean the inside out and looks like it will need to be sealed. He plan on using my drill and wire wheels to clean the outside. Then prime and paint it.

Well got a little more done today. The floor boards are in really good shape except for the rear passenger foot wells, I will have to replace them along with the rockers panels here is some new pictures.

So far this is a great father and son project, he is having more fun than I am.
