My 69 update thread.
I can't really call this a build thread since it's more of an update thread. My car has been sitting since about 2010, when I stole the ZZ4 for my 89 step side, and it sat in the back of my barn being neglected ever since. Now, it''s never going to be show quality, and it destined to remain just a driver, but that doesn't mean I can't do some stuff to it to make it more enjoyable to drive. I started half-hardheartedly working on it again about two years ago, but now that someone south of the border is doing what I used to do for a living and I'm between jobs, I have some time to play with it again. I stockpiled a bunch of parts and am finally getting somewhere with it. Most of the following has been done since last winter.
My goal is to build a mild cruiser that can handle well, run all day, and be comfortable and safe. I'm not looking to go drag racing or autocrossing with it, just road trips and maybe the occasional spirited driving on twisty back roads. Most of what I'm doing is just basic stuff you see every day.
