Nice to see it rolling under it's own power - great progress!

Sounds really good . . . I know it's hard to get a recording to sound the same as real life, but thru my Logitech Z523 speakers - sounds mean!

Yeah I knew it would be close since you are RIGHT there with the engine. The crank has to be DAMN close considering the input shaft of the trans and everything else is right on that line. Looks neat and sounds even cooler. Props on the fab work. Whens the body drop back on it?


Going to start working on the flares soon. My plate is full at the moment.


Temporary brake/parking/turn lights for the rear.




Custom Walbro fittings b/c one of my plastic ones snapped.




Chemical Zinc bath for the fittings




Enjoy life while you can, because you only have one shot. So go BIG or go home.

It will be titled as a jbody.


But seriously do we need to label any car the "KING"?

It is rich.

It is also untuned. We have made small adjustments to get it running and idling good. We will be working on getting it running/ driving good.

Hopefully Dyno numbers in a month or so.

But......Other then that though, the car is looking F&#%ing AWESOME!!! Please let me come work on it

Newest photo with the door jams mounted and the doors installed.


It was running stupid lean after replacing the plugs and switching to a 3-bar MAP sensor, found the ZZP jumper harness terminal lost its seating clip. blah


Welded up my own fittings to make the E-vac system about two inches shorter. Plus coolant pressure tested for a few days solid with only a four psi drop. Im happy with that.



The switches and gauges are finally mounted. Going to give the dash a guy at work to lay a full cargo dash. Sorry for the poor quality.



I did not ground the coolant pipes originally and had electrolysis eat two holes in a couple of the SS pipes. So I added some grounding studs and reinforcement places around all of the leak spots to be safe.


Soldered in the resistors for the LED tail lights and turn signals, as well as soldering in the diodes for them.



And yes "John", it clears speed humps in the road. LOL





The tow bar I'm going to rig up, due to not having the time to build a trailer before the next show on Aug 10th. Trust me, it will be "CLEAN" approved.
