well the painter is coming monday to paint the firewall with his gun and some left over paint he's got. working on that and coating the a-arm with the por-15 stuff getting them ready for paint too. still waiting on the frame, most likely i will get it back this week. then its time to start putting it together and see if i can find the piece's for everything because i have them all over the place.

well, went and picked the frame up today at noon and could not wait to get home to put it together. going to start coming together fast now. i left the coil springs out, and for some reason i thought the shock would hold the car up a lil. WRONG it went all the way down were i can just stick some fingers between the ground and the frame. looks cool as h#$L... SITTING THAT LOW. the front of my car will sit low now for sure, after seeing this. the coil springs and the front core support is the last of the powder coating. here is some pic's

getting there. I cut some PVC tubes 3/4" about 4-5 inhces long and ran the shokcs through them to keep the car up in the air. You more then likely won't be able to get the springs in until you have most of the weight in the front of the car.

I am doing a similar swap, well 2 of them. I have a 66 sedan thats getting a Checkered Racing front clip and 4-link. It is getting a 402 LS1 with a T88 on it and a 6-speed. The other is a 67 wagon that is getting a 434 LSX with a nice shot of juice. It will also get a Checkered Racing front end and already has a completely redone stock rear. Good luck with the build and keep us posted. I have also been watching on Steve's Nova Site, but I can't post there yet.
