I am getting REALLY closed on the tune on the carb. Took her out to "mexico" yesterday for a little flogging. Told my 16 year old to film the steering wheel/dash/shifter (and not my gut..). He tried his best...

Thanks guys!

So obviously, it's never done. I am putting front and rear swaybars on it tomorrow, along with a MP pinion snubber (there isn't one on it right now).

Front and rear swaybars are on. The front was super easy. Hellwig 1 1/8" bar, rear was an addco 3/4" bar. Lining up the rear and drilling/etc was a tedious pain in the ass, but it's done and on. Huge difference in the handling!!

I put my MP pinion snubber on, but had to take it off, at ride height, it's right on the floor at the lowest setting, so I need to find a stock one (mine grew legs..)

Just a little update. I have been enjoying the car, but I ran into a little snag. The old style flanged green bearings failed due to a bent axleshaft. I upgraded to new axleshafts and snapring style bearings from doctor diff, all good now! I was in a parade on July 4th, and had the mayor for the city of Margate, FL in my car! It was a cool experience. The car did great, temp gauge stayed nice and steady, no issues!
