        • I also installed recovered head liner and Grant GT steering wheel. Getting the right clips tracked downed and reinstalled was fun. Don't mind the brown sail panel plastic as its mint but just needs to painted satin black yet.

            • I haven't been keeping this up to date. Here is the short version.

              Fixing valve cover leak last year I found these.


              They came from here.....


              So I decided it was time to move from 1.5 to 1.6 rockers

              • Before finding the needle bearing problem I updated the front brakes to LS1 brakes.

                      • Decided it was time to do sometime about the rearend, stock won't let me play like I wanted. Called up Quick Performance and this showed up.



                        Sent it out and had it powder coated at Magnum. My buddy set up the Strange center section.

                        • With the rear beefed up I sent the SLP rims out to Weldcraft and had them add 3 inches. Got me some 315s. Also upgraded the rear brakes. Bye bye factory bump stops. I modified the koni shocks and added koni bump stops to the stocks.

                          • Wow! Lots o good looking pieces there Tony.

                            What brand of rockers were those original (red) ones? I like that stud girdle.

                            I've acquired many of the parts for the LS brake upgrade. What did you do for a master cylinder / proportioning valve?

                            • Got rid of it and installed an adjustable wilwood proportioning valve. I can get you some pics.
