I got them in securely, but the rear discs do not fit properly. they hit the shoulder on the wheel studs that protrudes from the axle shaft flange about 1/8" ugh.. It's always something..

Finally got the rotors drilled out correctly, and was able to button up the brakes Friday (sorry for the iphone pics..)

No pics yet, but I loosely installed my Pypes exhaust (X pipe system). Very nice system, but the pipes between the header collector and the X pipe don't match up to the header collector (bad angle). I'm going to have to get a local exhaust shop bend me a new pair of those at the right angle so I can button it up.

I don't have any exhaust tips for now, I'll worry about that after it's able to run and drive.

Slowly but surely, but it's always something.

So I put in the "pypes" brand exhaust to check fitment, and sure enough.. it ain't right!

It's actually fitting well, except the angle to the header collector. So I'm going to have a local exhaust shop make me new collector extensions to work for it..

So I lost my storage at work (stupid HR got on our case about employee cars at work). So it's now home in my newly set up garage. Boy did I have to get creative with everything, but it all fits!

You should invest in some car skates, that way you can move the car around easily.

Still looking good BTW!

I have a set, but the car is centered in the garage where I want it, and if I need space I can push it out and put it back in. And it's all nice and covered up now, with some moving blankets ontop of the car cover in strategic spots to protect it from children...

So I finally took the heater box apart today... Good lord was it nasty!! I cleaned the case good, and the metal parts, well, I need to sandblast them. Gotta get some time here soon to get to my buddy's to use his blast cabinet.. nasty!

Does anyone make a heater box resto kit with new screws and seals??

Detroit Muscle Technologies make a great resto kit. Not sure if he has the screws. He is a member here and also sells the kits on Ebay. If you do an EBay search for "DMT heater box" you will find his stuff. Good luck!

As I wait for the heater box parts (and the fact that I need to visit my buddy next week and use his blast cabinet to clean up the metal parts from the heater box), I decided to look at putting together my vent window frames (I dismantled them to have them rechromed).

I need to pick up the epoxy today and some clamps and get to reassembling! I polished the brightwork that's for the vertical window channel and laid it all out ready to assemble..

Feels good to get some sheeet done!

So I'm all over the place with little parts and bits I'm working on right now.

I got a wild hair up my rear last night and cleaned my heater box shell further and I shot it with some satin black paint (It's actually VTH brand black brake caliper paint, tough stuff!!!). It came out looking brand new!!

I can't wait to put it back together when I get my seals, and if I can find my new heater core! DOH!

I'm jealous if your really in Florida, cause you'll be able to take that bad boy out all year round!

Making good progress, stay hungry

Did you ever check the topside of your convertible top header for rust???

Yes, I really am in Florida (Southeast FL).

The heater box stuff showed up today!

And no, I haven't checked mine yet.. I'm scared to!
