Some sanding to make naked the '78 quarter panel !!! ... Would have been cool if they stamped some body lines into these skins



It's a long story as to why the '78 has to be a serpentine belt drive ... But it's 85% complete now for ~165$



Engine side mounts powder coated ... I need to start making big batches or actually measuring these custom colors or I feel some mismatch is in the future



My SEMA thrash begins LOL ! "LT-1" installed ! ... (chrome and carb are temporary)



Got the clutch, newly painted bell housing (was orange), T5 Transmission, and driveshaft installed ! Operating angles above (thanks TREMEC app!)

Ugh still slow going but converted a MSD 8361 to fully locked up, mechanical and vacuum advances removed, so the FI computer can control timing ...



Also got the Custom Works Performance shocks painted and mounted front and rear, also rear brake lines almost completed ...

Its looking really good and really starting to come together. Looks like yours was originally the same factory yellow that came on my 78.
