It's been a while since I've written an update on my rolling project. Some quick pics from where I started and where we were most of last year. It was a good starter project. Driver with no real issues other than asthetics and some finishing up here and there. Tore it apart: Put it back together and took it to Roundup. It pretty much stayed like this all year. So this is where we were at. After the Day of the Drags in Temple, Texas I decided I needed more power. So we replaced the '68 307 with a 4 bolt decked blueprinted 350 from my buddy's wrecked 74 Camaro. It won't stay like this. I have another buddy with a Ford 390 I'm about to purchase. This oughta be interesting. Anyway... Our Alliance rocks. Bought some odds and ends here and there from a few folks (valve covers, bolts, license plate bracket, tail lights, etc..) and started a refit. On Income Tax Return Day (should be a holiday) I got ahold of Jerry at Coker who promptly saved me over $100 on my tires and tubes. The service was fantastic. Matt at Lakeheaders.com saved me shipping on my lake headers. $350 finished and let me tell you guys something...if you're considering weld ups or completes from Speedway you oughta get your pipes from Matt instead. These are outstanding. On my wheels...hell. I can't say enough about how cool both Bear Metal Kustoms and Rally America are. Both Jimmy and Jason worked together to get my wheels finished up and to me in no time at all. Now the car is done and going to Roundup again this year. Driven everywhere as always. No all I need is a low profile 2X4. So the new valve covers haven't been put on because I haven't decided on what I'm going to do. They're not drilled for the PCV and I'm leaving them like that. I'll have to install one on whatever intake I decide to use...when i get it. I'm concentrating on the inside of the car next. Gonna get new seats. Hopefully from our own Stitchbitch on the HAMB. Way up there in the great white north somewhere. Need a new steering wheel. I'm thinking 40 Ford style. Wife likes the Bell style four spoke similar to what's there now. (I chopped that '57 GMC column months ago and took pictures. Need to make a tech post.) Oh...I also removed the old aluminium and wood combo floor and put down a steel one. Also moved the battery and cables to behind the seat instead of under the car. w00t! This is tech week so....thanks to an older article I read this week....I have new baffles. Almost. My spreadsheet says I saved $246 dollars total off of everything I purchased aliong with the free shipping I got on a few items. Man you can't beat that kind of discount. Thanks.
