Thanks for the kind words of encouragement everyone. My goal is to have it running & driving under its own power by its 50th birthday which is 11/25/18. I still have to do the suspension, steering, brakes, engine build, wiring, rear springs, new rear gears, & then reassemble, & by my time line that gives me just over 2 years to get that all done.

Today I assembled the steering column as far as I could go, I am waiting on the upper bearing.



I finished cleaning the old undercoating from the l/s inner fender panels, shock tower, frame rail, & fire wall. I also drilled the holes in the shock tower for the Shelby/Arning upper control arm drop.

For the last week I have been trimming & fitting the pieces for the big block r/s shock tower reinforcement, now they just need to be welded in.

Today after work I started removing the old black paint from the firewall.

Today I welded on the l/s center rear shock tower reinforcement, & started welding on the l/s front & rear "L" shaped shock tower to frame reinforcements, & the r/s front & rear "L" shaped shock tower to frame reinforcements.





I also tacked the Boss302 wheel side shock tower to frame reinforcements in place.
