New sway bar showed up. First thing I checked the width. The bar I restored was 39 and half.  The new bar is 41". New bar went right on.

Pulled out the peddle assembles. Need to switch clutch and break peddles over to the cars original peddle support. I believe the clutch peddle assembly I picked up is from tilt wheel car. It has 4 bolt holes for the steering column. My non tilt has 3. Yesterday I got the assembles torn down and sandblasted what I will be using. No work today because of the rain so I got everything painted up.

Very nice work. Looks awesome!
May I ask the kind of equipment (air pressure/media) that you've used for sandblasting?

looks great! Do you have a complete spare disc brake pedal assembly? I might want it if you do.

I'm not sure of the media. I got the harbor freight  sand blast cabinet from SDstang when he was done with his restoration.  It had the black sand blast media in it. I have blasting around 90 psi.

Mike, did you install a new brake prob. valve or did you use your original? If new, where did you get it from and is it identical to the original? Thanks, Ryan

 Ryan, I did replace the proportioning valve with a Scott Drake 67-73 piece from CJ pony parts. I do Not recommend using it. It"s not even close to the original one. It maybe a better fit for the earlier cars but not for the 71-73s.
