Drove it! First time in several weeks that the weather has been clear. Parked near Daytona Sunrise C7 in the parking garage.
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. Anyway, good day.

I finally got all the rat droppings cleaned out of my '68 bird after i got behind the dash. Waiting for the universal GM 21 circut wire harness to come in and be one step closer to getting this thing back on the road again

Shane, awesome looking bird. I really like the way the wheels fit the fender wells. What diameter and width are those rims?

End of last year, the town was painting new lines in the road. "Someone" didnt know what they were doing and painted a line in the middle of the driving lane. I didn't notice it till too late, and drove over it.


I was not pleased to see the mess of splattered paint inside the pass side wheel wells


This week I removed all the wheels and painted the inner fender areas, with a black undercoat spray.

Nice paint job. I would really like to see the "Before" picture too!

I was so mad at the town, and what I saw when I got home that night, I wanted the problem gone and nothing to remind me of what it looked like.


It was horrible...and that off white splashed painted inside the wheel wells. I should have taken the front inner fender to the town to show them before I cleaned/painted it.

Wired some lights into the t-top holders. My camera only saw the brightest areas of light, the whole trunk well is nicely lit from the white led's. No more struggling to store the tops after dark!

It is an internally smooth air intake elbow for LT1 cars, without the sound baffling "donkey dong" extension at the bottom. Provides slightly better air flow.

Getting close, just need to bolt the brakes up, and off to the rear.
