Haha, sorry. That prolly won't happen. Most of these are old(er) pics. I've just brought you guys up to current. But it is still motivating. I have a few pics of rebuilding the engine I'll post soon too. -Rob

No prob, I'll try to take more pics of some of the repairs. The dash is far from done. I'm gonna try to get some of that front end put back together on Wed night, but we'll see... Here's a couple other photos lounging on my phone though...
 

 
Here's my 69 390/4spd future project... AKA the shelf.

Grin AKA shelf  Grin
My shelf is bigger.....by 12 inches.....It's a 70 Javelin  Grin
I had to lay the hood back on the car so I had more shelf space so I could work the fenders over on a stand in front of it.

It not the size of the shelf... It's how you use it!  Grin Grin Grin
 
Thanks Igor, that means alot coming from you. I've been following your thread for awhile and I'm still super impressed with your quarter panel/fender modification! -Rob

It seems you have the same idea also when building... suddle changes that someone that does not know the car, needs to take a few steps back and take another look to get their " oh wait a minute " moment! Grin Grin
 
Keep up the good work!

Funny, I have a shelf that looks remarkably similar to a gremlin. Grin
I spot a trend here.

Im a little ashamed to say... I also use my 'shelf' as storage cabinet. Wink  
 
Here's some pics of what I got done tonight...  
 
Dad installed the x-member earlier this week, so I was able to get the control arms and precious few other items installed this evening. Unfortunately I won't be able to do any more for a week do to schedule... undecided

Sorry, I haven't posted in awhile. I've had setbacks as far as money/parts/time. Progress has been slow going, but should hopefully pick up soon. I finally got the spindle assemblys back together and on, installed new bushings and ball joints, bead blasted and repainted the rotors, cleaned inspected and repacked the wheel bearings, and started machining down new bushing material to rebuild the lower spring perches. More to come soon.... -Rob

Well tonight was 3 years in the making! I finally set the engine back between the fenders! It feels great, now I get to start adding all the little details to the engine bay. Usually I do all that first, but I had good reasons for putting the engine in a little early. I am excited though! The front suspension is almost complete again too. I hope to have her back on all 4s on Friday.

So HAPPY!Cheesy I finally got her back in all fours today! The new ride height is pretty good ( I removed 1 coil from each spring), but once the tranny goes in, the rest of the engine bay is filled up and the suspension has a chance to settle I'm sure it'll be lower. here's some pics....
