Thanks chichirone. I'm coming down the home stretch.

Got off work early today, so I got a few things done. Finally got the rear seat done. That was a fun chore to get them covered and installed, but they look good. Not a big empty spot anymore. Got the dash panel installed with the trim rings too. Looks awesome. Thanks Rcombs. Also spent most of the afternoon getting the left front spring swapped out. Tomorrow I'll be getting the other side done. Got the trans installed last weekend. I'll probably be ordering the rims sometime next week. Might even have electrical about done too, but that is the most dreaded part of a restoration.

Finally back on the ground and ended up sitting perfect. Wheel gaps are great. The rims really stand out on the car. 17x9.5's. with 275/40/17 all the way around.

Hey yall. I know it's been a very long time for me to update my car. I got the exhaust done on the car. Very similar to the optional 69 Z/28 exhaust system. Sounds really good and dirty. Might put a pair of resonator's on it to tone it down from the drone that it has. Here's some pics of the system.

I have been driving the car around town and enjoying the car. Converted the car to EFI with FiTech. Was working on tuning the timing control before I deployed. Converted the HEI to be able to be controlled by the FiTech. Works really good. I think I advance the timing a little much, so when I get back I'll be starting back at 0 on the timing.

nice work. I'm glad you've been able to put some miles on the car.
