2 more years would most likely be reality. Hopefully sooner.

Nine inch and rear suspension is next.

I have the same kit to install for the front brakes. How big of a PITA was it to drill and tap the spindle while on the car? What are you using there for a guide in the pic of the thread tap?

Hey Jason, It wasn't bad at all. I used a good bit and cutting oil. My biggest concern was drilling it straight. The guide was tab cut off a adapter plate to bolt a 302 to a VW bus trans.

WOW!!!!  This thread is encouraging and motivating.  GREAT JOB!!!!

For the black on the skirt is it flat black or gloss?  Are you doing flat black on the hood?
What paint system did you go with?  Brand, primer, etc?

Used Ditzler hot rod black by PPG on the hood and lower body. Just like the sheen of the hot rod black.  Primer, shop line. Paint and clear PPG.

Thanks.

Today I headed out back. I pulled the N case 3.50 T loc that I install back in 95 when I first got the car. I'll tell you what I forgot what a heavy Sum Beach it is. After hitting it with the wire wheel I found the pinon carrier is broke.  Undecided  The plan is to go threw it and add 3.70s gears.
