    So the deadline is my winter ball dance. Not to finish it just to jet it drivable. I wanna take my girlfriend to. The dance in it. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1422301916.692188.jpg

    I always thought it was yellow and looked nice just something different.

    ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424359950.594197.jpg we got the wing windows in and all the window tracks in. Now the to do list before winter ball is figure out the alternator issues, put the interior back together some what (just put the front seat in) register it, and drive it!

    Painting the dash today. Going with the color of the wheels just because it's what I have. Eventually I'll change the color ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1424655303.779665.jpg

    What a nightmare.. So we took it to the dmv to register and the vin on the car doesn't match the tittle. We have to take it to the state police today. Guess I won't be taking my girlfriend to the dance tonight

    New shocks lowered it about 1.5 inches in the front. Also were starting the headliner tonight.

    This damn car is pissing me off! I've bled the crap out of the brakes, and there's no air in the lines, and I've adjusted all the brakes and the Pedal still takes 3 pumps to get any kind of brakes! Anyone have ideas?

    Hey, this has turned out brilliant, you should be so proud, im gonna go back and read through what you have done again, my initial thoughts on brakes, are they standard with the master under the floor, i havent looked if you have installed discs up front but you may have to install those pressure valves that keep a bit of pressure in the system, but thats my first thought lol. I havent been on here for ages so ill update my thread a bit later after looking through yours, im a way behind you but hopefully have mine driveable this year....fingers crossed.

    you could try fitting those residual valves they sorted out the brakes on my mates mustang, because you masters lower than your cylinders (if its mounted below floor still) you might be getting fluid drain back. I think you use 10psi ones for drums.

    I used the MP (Master Power) Kit for the caliper conversion first. Picked it up at a swap meet for a good price. Then added the Walton's firewall kit without the booster. Maybe a couple of hundred miles on it and no problems.
