Re: Project update

almost there! congrats!!! My project keeps getting stalled as well, but back at it lately I've learned that it's an endless battle to try and find time to get out there. It's not like you can just spend an hour here and there tinkering. For me, I need blocks of time - a half day or so - to really d...

Re: camshaft specs for your build

Wow, you're really testing me there... I just looked through my photos and this is what I came up with. I could probably find the cam card in my files but, with our plans to move, everything is packed. :ack: Hopefully you can read this.

I need to get the hood remounted so I can work on the hood gap/reveal line between the hood and hood sur...

Re: Removing the front clip

Hey Ken, thanks for checking in. I was wondering if you were still making progress on your car. Similar to Brookster I had just assumed you gave up! Switching jobs and moving will definitely put a damper on your productivity. Glad to hear your back at it and that your making forward progress!

Re: Looking for BB 4 bolt main, even crate

E-bay and craigslist may be a good place to look, or at local car shows and swap meets. Finding something local will definitely help cut down on shipping costs. The other option is to simply order a built crate engine.

Re: Having a lot of trouble aligning fender skirts and radiator

I'm scratching my head as to what would cause of the misalignment. By playing with all of the adjustments you mentioned you should be able to get it aligned properly. I don't know if this is even possible, or if it would even create an issue, but is there any chance you switched the control arms (pu...

Re: Front body panel separation. Suggestions?

It looks like the body panel may have debonded from the bonding strip but, boy, that would be an odd occurrence. It would take a lot of stress to cause that to happen. Regardless, if that's the issue you're options seem to be a bit limited if you want to save your paint job (which I assume you do). ...

Re: Cleaning the firewall

I used a sander to get the worst stuff off, too. For the nooks and crannies I scraped as much as I could out with a putty knife and a flat head screwdriver. I probably didn't get all of it out - did the best I could.
