    That is a very nice ride!! I'm a little jealous of the condition of the floor pan!

    Various barns in N. IL looking for chit.
    Sorry for the delay. It's a spray on. Nice looking finish when done also. I'm pretty much addicted to the stuff for various uses. lol

    Thanks and yes, the condition of the floor pans is very good. This car is very solid. Well worth putting all the work into it. Alot of fun too :)

    I'm gonna give that stuff a try when I get to the interior and underside of the car.

    It's on the list; which seems to be growing every day.

    I'm trying to figure out how heat gets back to that blower; I don't recall seeing any ductwork going back to it.

    IIRC, that has a small heating unit build into it. Nice looking ride BTW. :)

    Thanks!

    I won't be driving this car ever in cold weather so if anyone needs a rear defrost system for their car PM me.

    I thought there was just a blower motor mounted in the center of the rear deck between the speakers for the defrost option and all it did was blow ambient air around.. ...at least that is what I thought on my 78. Now I have to go look when I get home....

    Any more information would be very interesting to hear. If that is a heated unit I may be interested in it......

    Block painted and ready for build

    Ordered all my parts for the cam/head install so decided to prep and paint the block. Turned out pretty good. :)

    Also cut the boss in the valley so I can upgrade to a newer style Ls6 valley cover. Supposed to be a lot cleaner and reduce oil consumption.

    Will hopefully have the motor all together in the next week or so.
