Bought a new carb, distributor, water pump pulley, crank pulley, mini starter, fuel pump, etc.. Also needed to get something on the car to keep it from going downhill until I can get it into the garage. Quick satin job for now.

Dang man! That's sweet!. As many projects as you have roll through your place, you're going to have to start a business before too long!

My buddy wanted new wheels for his C10, so I offered to buy these from him.
4 wheels with new tires. $700 I am happy with them.

Had a productive weekend.



Friday at lunch I scraped the barnacles off the dash and painted it, and installed a new brake booster, master cylinder, got it hooked up to the brake pedal.

Saturday I installed a new steering column, I lucked out and it dropped right in like it was made for it. I measured for all the linkage from the column to the power steering box and got that ordered. I pulled the front coil springs to drop the front of the car a bit, replaced the front rotors, inner & outer wheel bearings, seal, etc. Installed new shocks front and rear.

Sunday I figured out how to mount the radiator using some crap/scrap I had kicking around, not the best looking, but will work. Also cut the transmission tunnel for the shifter, modified the shifter that came with the transmission. Then installed the hydraulic clutch, tucked the clutch master in right beside the brake booster, and made a bracket off the clutch pedal arm to mount the rod to.

Moving right along, it's amazing what a difference a few weeks can make.

Yes, it is a master out of a 1993 Chevy 1500

Yesterday I was able to install the driveshaft (ordered custom from a place in Winston Salem on Tuesday, showed up Monday.. Very impressed!) and installed the steering linkage from the box to the column.
