I can't believe it's been over a month since I have posted on here but I have been doing some work on the car. I put the body back on the chassis for the last time. It's squared and everything is torqued down. I also finished all of the fab work on the dash for the VA vents and controls. I am in a holding pattern now waiting for the car to go to paint. I really hope to be posting body work pictures by Christmas but we will see if that happens..
I took this down time as a sign that we needed another project in our household
My son and I drove over to a buddy's house in Indy this last weekend and picked up the newest member of our car family. My son couldn't be happier because this one is his.
He has big plans for it and a small wallet so I will probably end up using some Chevelle money for it but as long as he is in the shop with me and we are spending time together, I could care less if the Chevelle gets pushed back a little. His wish list right now is pretty simple according to him. He wants the stance very low, he wants as much tire as he can fit under it and he wants a lumpy cam.
I mentioned modern suspension and brakes and he shrugged at me
The truck is going to have the same theme as the Chevelle since he has shown interest in auto crossing the truck once he has his license.
I really want to start on the truck asap and keep his interest peaked where its at right now. Before we can start though I want to get to some updates to mommas Impala that I put off all Summer. I have a 700r4 for it, big brakes from Kore 3 and a mandrel bent exhaust. I cut out the 2" crimp bent, power robbing mess that was in it today.
I started getting everything ready to pull the power glide out today when my trans jack died and put a halt to everything.
I would love to document the truck build here since it will be a very pro-touring oriented build but I'm sure that would be frowned upon since it's not an A body. I will sneak some pictures in here and there though.
Sorry for the long winded explanation but I haven't been here in a while and I missed this place a little
