Looks nice, you should post up a daylight photo so we can get the full effect when you have a chance.

We got a lot of snow last night. So I went drifting around the streets all morning then went to a self serve car wash and got her all icy

Pulled the heads. Have a rocker stud pulling out of the head. Crappy pressed in studs. So Monday it's off to the machine shop for screw in studs and then put it all back together. Yeah

Got my u joints onto the driveshaft, and my exhaust back on the car. It is so unfortunate that that crappy rusty exhaust has to go in my nicely undercoated car. New exhaust is on the todo list though.

Nice! My driveshaft is next to go on mine, but I'll have to wait a while for e brake cables to arrive before I proceed with the rear brake reassembly.

Moving her closer to being ready for spring:
-Got the driveshaft back in the trans with new seal
-Got the new leaf springs on, greased up the front bolt to hopefully never have to deal with it rusting in the sleeve again
-Got the refurbished axle housing back on the leafs.
-Got the new shocks on the rear (the wife even helped out with that one - I held the upper part of the shock tube under the car while she tightened the nuts inside the cabin).
-And finally got my collectors car registration and plates, and got her insured.

Next up is putting on the new parking brake cables, assembling the rear brakes, then front shocks and brake lines. Then lots of fluids (gotta get some F-Type trans fluid) and grease and it will be time to drive! I'm getting excited!

Not sure, got it from NPD. It was the more expensive prefit ones. Made in China I'm sure, but fit great. No cutting or massaging to get it to fit.

All I wanted to do was listen to her idle in the garage but I ended up flooring it on the main road. Brings me joy!

So I've had a busy weekend so far. It's amazing the progress I make when the wife is gone. Friday and Saturday I have:

-Greased up u joints and reinstalled the driveshaft
-completed my first drum brake rebuild (only launching one spring across the room)
-reinstalled the rear brakes, drums and axles
-put oil in the differential
-replaced the front brake hoses with braided ones
-replaced the front shocksClick image for larger version

-replaced parking brake cables and adjusted
-installed a fuel filter (can you believe there wasn't one installed!?)

Ummm, I think that's it. Today I bleed the brakes. Then I think it's just an oil changes left before I drop her to the ground again!
