    The seat was in real bad shape, tracks were craked and there where coils that was completely worn out. The other was nicer!

    Lmc, i don't like leather style so i bought the velour style.
    I used a 2" camping mattress instead of the original padding!

    Looks good for my first seat restoration!

  21. Great project! Could you measure the front shocks for me, at extension and compression? I think they are what I need on my 29AA project I need 18" extended and 14" compressed, or thereabouts.

    Sorry guys for the delay...

    So i scored a brand new in the box rad... The guy bought it for a 55 chevy car but its clearly a truck rad, so is loss my gain!
    The only issue i had was the inlet that is centered so i bought a swivel thermostat housing.

    I had a little problem with the carb gasket, i have late model Q-jet +/- 85 and the intake is a 66-68 so the hot slot was out of the gasket.
    So i found on a corvette forum a combination of 2 felpro + 1 mr gasket to block the hot slot....
