    There is lots that has happened up to this point, I tore the car down to the shell, spent a month and a half cleaning/painting the undercarriage, had the subframe/inner fenders powdercoated, and then the car went to the restoration shop for about 8 months for paint/bodywork. Installed ZZ4 350, Tremec TKO600 5speed trans, Moser 12bolt w/ Eaton 3:73 posi-33 spline axles-1350 yoke-clips eliminated, Wilwood 4 wheel 12.19" disc brakes/Master Cylinder/Proportioning valve, Global West upper/lower control arms, AGR 12:1 steering box, replaced all steering componants with new Moog parts, Goodmark 2" steel Cowl Induction hood, all new fuel and brake lines from Inlinetube, all new chassis/under hood hardware from AMK Products.

    Just posted my gas tank sending unit and gas tank install (Body Section), so I'll spare the repeat of those pics. I will post some new pics soon, of the engine compartment and interior progress. ;)

    Wow, im loving the black detailing like the trim around the windows.

    Planning on blacking out anything else? bumpers, light trim rings, etc?

    Man, what a rats nest. You are going to trip over the handle of that rubber mallet, then fall face first into that brake rotor, then try and sit up and smack your sport mirror off with your head. Not to mention poke yourself in the eye with those needle nosed pliers. What's with all those miscellaneous tools laying around like a child has been running a muck.

    Looks just like my shop!!! Keep on keepin on Leon!
