well after what i hoped would be an easy assembly of the shell i bought i finally got to drive the thing this weekend, my last test drive attempt was a block long since the rear diff was ssscreeeming like a fire truck behind me. the full list was front bushings, ball joints, shocks, caliper rebuild, rack and pinion rebuild, all steel and rubber brake lines, new fuel lines, rewired entire chassis with "new" bulbs and sockets (ground wire sockets) rear shoes, wheel cylinders & hardware, pan rod and link bushings, tires and rims, painted, glass and rubber install, dashboard repair, cluster wiring and repairs, complete interior redo. and i think that about covers it. oh yeah complete rear diff and torque tube rebuild. now i have the 2nd car (parts car) full of stuff and a room full of boxes i am going to post in the parts section if anyone needs some stuff and is close to me.

Looks like you did a great job on your car. looks great. Sounds like a lot of work to get it in the shape she's in now.
