Dang Tom. That's some quality work, and after looking over your shop I had to go out and spend some time just cleaning up my shop.

Tom, your car looks great! You did an awsome job on the frame and front suspension. I can't wait to start another project so I can try that rotisserie idea. I just keep learning more and more from you guys.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Thanks Jim, I can't take all the credit. I get a lot of help from friends and my Dad.  I've learned a lot from guys on here and the HAMB.  I have to admit I look at the stuff Ghost does very closely to see if there is anything I can learn.  It's what makes this hobby the best! Get that exhaust done so you can take yours for a ride!

I spent the day bending brake lines and making flares. Also got the fuel line and tank installed.  Once I get the hoses for the rear brake cylinders I can bleed the brakes and get the engine and trans back in.

No Wilwood calipers just 80's GM.  I want to be able to go to NAPA or Advanced Auto if I need replacement parts.

Tom...Did the GM calipers come with the front suspension or did you have to adapt them?

It came with the front end from TCI. You could have the Wilwood calipers for some extra cash.
