Post 71 BB Convertible restoration

I thought that I would add some pictures of my BB convertible restoration. I installed a 496 for some extra punch but I have my original numbers matching BB on a stand in my garage. I kept the original trans and rear in the car. I have not had time to work on it much but I installed the NOS window sweeps also I just finished the wiper motor and AC box. I am trying to make some time soon to try to finish up.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming: "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

I have to keep reminding myself this isn't a Z16 convertible, Evening Orchid Camaro, or factory 1966 SS427 and get on with it.
