    ive been slacking on updating. So far ive painted the bottom with bed liners, fabbed up brackets and fitted a 72 bumper, painted the bumpers and valance with bed liner, and today i sprayed the hood, trunk, and mirrors Satin Black. Granted it was try #2 after messing up my gun settings

    I’ve been slacking on the updates. Still working on the 73. Installed 5 leaf springs that came with my 65 on the 73 as well as the new shocks. It was a pain and took me 2 days. Everything was so rusted I broke a bolt off the shock and had to cut the rear shack bolts off.

    Also pulled off the pass fender which was another pain as the cage nuts broke under it. Had to adjust the door, gaps, and striker to get it all straight. Also installed the modified bumper and front valance.

    Hood and trunk are installed. Intake and carb are installed. I need to hook all the wires up and fill her up with gas before I see how she runs. Once it’s running I’ll start installing the pertronix.
