Camera card was corrupted and lost all my assembly photos ](*,)

Engine assembled, installed and running. Fitting those tins was a major PITA. :-({|=

Destroyed a perfectly good pair of tires so I can mount porta-walls tomorrow.

On to the front end. Repack bearings, align, etc etc

Right on Jon! Coming together nicely. This build off is totally what a lot of people needed to get on their rides.

Thanks Steve. I would never have thought about getting back on this thing until this friendly little competition came along. There isn't any crazy fab work to get this thing back on the road...but at least I'm getting shit done (slowly) lol.

Got tires mounted today. Turned out pretty decent. Front end aligned...yeah I know...I've got some sophisticated alignment tools lying around my shop!

Tomorrow springplates and rear drums...rear brakes are froze.

Check out the difference between Nankang 135/15 and these Continental 146/65.

Couldn't sleep, got up early this morning and headed out to the garage.

That torque dude tool is a life-saver. Rear hubs came right off. Pads were saturated with brake fluid & crumbling on both sides. I have spare wheel cylinders but had to place an order for pads/hard line..

Pulled off the springplates and notched... =D>

Thanks for posting that pic of the 135s compared to the 145/65s, I am going to do the same thing on a car I have and wasnt sure how they would look. Off the rim the difference looks huge, mounted up its not that bad, but enough to make the change.
Let me drop what Im doing and fix your problem

Thx, like I said earlier, this build-off is an excellent idea, didn't even have it on the calendar to make this car a driver again...I'm stoked to drive it! =D>

Nah, So much hate and ill-will coming out of that site...it's hard to log on anymore :-#

I thought this car drove like ass with those 135's. Any little groove in the road would suck me in and tracked like shit. I guess because of the small contact patch....

This past saturday was nearly 60 degrees here in PA. I got to paint some parts before re-assembly.

I got these sweet socket head cap screws from Totally Stainless for the springplate covers. They're super nice.

Just for fun, I got a vintage stop light for this ride. Brake parts are supposed to be here tomorrow \:D/

EBay, but you got to keep checking the auctions. Some of the auctions and buy it now prices are ridiculously high. I got a sweet deal on this light. Smile
