Since i could'nt make up my mind what colors i want, im gonna go with the stock black with red guts. right now all im doin is gatherin parts an tryin to get it drivable to get the title transfered into my name an get my plates an registration. just put in an hei distributor an new plugs last night, just gotta rewire the distrubtor. Wana get it all in my name before i completely tear it down. The floors an rockers are super solid, but the trunk an rear quarters are fucked. i got a canadian frame from a friend of mine before i even got the car. Was gonna start wrappin the frame, just never got around to starting it. Was a waste of money since my car came with a canadian frame. its a standard on the column, so gettin rid of that too!

Got the old points distributor out and a hei put in last night. got it wired up an tried to start it, it popped a couple of times up through the carb so thats where i stopped for the night. Gonna pull it back out, an reset the timming when i get off work. With that an a little luck we'll see if this old 283cu will run!

all that shit is to be expected, i put a new fuel pump and alternator, and plugs already. didn't have to mess with the distributor, cause i had one left over from my monte carlo. put a new motor in it, an threw in a billet one

Think im gonna loose my patience with at certain auto supply store in crowley, theyve always give me the right shit before so this better be a on time thing. Went an got a new master cylinder an when i turned in my core, they didn't give me a box. So when i get home I noticed there was no gasket that goes in between the master cylinder an the fire wall. That was saturday, an i keep gettin told "it will be here tommorow morning" shits gettin old! :mad:

Just wonderin how important is that gasket? Is it just to keep the master cylinder from scratchin the firewall? If that shit aint there in the morning, guess i will just have to make one.
