Took it around the block yesterday. Had a water and oil leaks. Fixed those, changed my water pump pulley. Put most of the interior back in. Cleaned up a bit and rolled around today. No leaks no issues.

Exept. My rear axle is not located right. The drivers side wheel base is an inch and a quarter shorter than the passenger side. My own screw up. The car was repaired and I second guessed the mounting holes. Anyway I will relocate it and put in my new adjustable lowers, drag bags, and slapper bars today. Might be a little over kill but...oh well.

Need a better exhaust. The pipe from the collector to the muffler is too short and mufflers are hitting the floor.

I wanna put a tilt column in. I have two, just seems like alot of work that something I wanna sell. Again, if I were keeping it, I would cutt the seat posts down. The seats are high from when I put in subframe connectors.

ugghhh its hard to build something that your not gunna keep

Oh its got old sonic turbos... crazy huh?

No Bar...fallin outa love, plus it dont go fast enough to need one.

I have the pinion angle set down a bit so when it turns it rotates up to the right position. Prolly gotta keep messing with it. But Im close.

As soon as I get this thing done Im gunna sell it. The car has faught me the whole way. (Im sure it aint done yet) It needs to go to someone that it likes. Plus, my interests have changed a bit. Wanna work on my 34 and Econoline. Oh, and if I sold it I could use the money for a square crew cab...
