The car looks great! Glad to hear they were able to get the rear end centered without having to cut on things or take more drastic measures.

That came out real nice. Have you sent pictures to the guy you originally bought it from yet?

Done about 2 months ago. Wilwood rear disc conversion, 12" slotted rotors, Wilwood master, new booster and all new lines from front to back

Heads up, the Wilwood master and prop valve combo on my truck blew the guts out of the brake light switch, bathing my engine bay in brake fluid.
I caught it before any damages occurred but you may want to keep an eye on yours.
I just replaced mine with a plug as I wasn't using it. Just 1/8 npt.

No shit, I actually have that exact same combo. Will definitely keep my eyes open.
Have you seen or heard of anyone else having that same issue?

I have not but I haven't looked into it any further. I can't be alone in the issue though.

My Tiara grill finally damage free and installed. What a fucking pain in the dick. Something that should have took a hour, took me 3.5 hours. Wound up having to modify the supplied mounting brackets. Grill was sitting about 1/4”-3/8” too low. Not only did it look horrible, the bumper wouldn’t go back on. You can see the gap in pic without the bumper on. Center emblem lights up white so it will match the headlights. I’ll run that wiring tomorrow.

When doing big wheels you have to do the matching steering wheel on old schools. If not its like having aftermarket rims on a Wrangler and cheaping out on the 5th wheel.
Looks great, car must get a lot of attention when you are driving around.
It actually does. It amazes me how many old timers actually give me a thumbs up considering the big wheels.

Most true gearheads get it. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but most can appreciate a clean car that's well done.

Any other ghetto you'd see this with a factory 289 carb that burns more oil than it drinks gas
