I have Excel-G's on the rear of my '66. I have no idea how they would do in "spirited" driving, but the regular ride is really good. I will put them on the front too, but the ones up there now are pretty recent so I'm waiting until I rebuild the front end

I have the kyb high pressure gas a Justus or whatever they're called on all 4 corners. They ride harsh and are very unstable at highway speeds over bridge seams or potholes. The *** end always steps out on me. That being said, they're not bad shocks, they're just cheap. I would go with a set of ride techs or QA1 if you can afford them

Just ordered another part that will get me over my next significant hurdle in my restoration. I am beyond excited for the next few steps. Stay tuned in the next few weeks as the car will finally begin to take shape.

It's crazy that this one kit cost way more than I actually paid for the car haha.

I had a lot of those instances where the parts cost more than the car, but when the car was only 800 it should be that big of a surprise!

Very true. When you boil it all down, it really doesn't take much haha. But I'm pretty pumped about this one lol.

Well, I got tons of work done on the car. Finally got a day to start wrenching again.

Anyway, I installed the Rod and Custom front coil over suspension. Kit is pretty badass. Complete front end kit. Went together almost effortlessly, installing spring coils with no motor was the hardest part. Everything else was just like putting together a puzzle.

4 piston Willwood disc brakes with black drilled and slotted rotors (included) tied the kit together very nicely.

I wish I would have opted for the powder coat finish on the control arms but I had some extra bedliner coating that I needed to use, so I think it still turned out great.

Another option was to upgrade to either 4 piston or 6 piston brakes. I went with the 4 piston with the black finish since the 6 piston was considerably more expensive. Oh well.

Overall, I am completely satisfied with the kit. Love the look of everything installed and the 2" drop spindles should make the car look badass. The next time I am home, I will be able to put the rear end in and FINALLY get the ol' girl off the rotisserie and back on the ground.

Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the install, so you guys will just have to wait a bit longer.

Really. You put all that badass stuff in and no pictures. That's criminal. Lol
Looking forward to pics, I feel like that is about the best mod you can do.

Not even a quick phone picture? I need my fix

I'm interested to see what the kit looks like, and hear how it drives!

I know. I was going. To do a small installation right up, but my phone died as soon as I started and I was in a time crunch so I was rushing as fast as I could.

I mean here is the picture from Rod and Custom. Of course you'll have to use your imagination, but it's the same thing.

And if any of you are thinking about a disc brake upgrade, I will recommend Willwood every day and twice on Sunday. The black calipers and the black rotors and the amazing looking hubs, dear Lord is it eye candy.

I'll try to snag some pics tomorrow. I'll be going to my fiancé's hometown and I'll see if we can take a detour and swing through my hometown.

That's a pretty looking setup you got there.

As promised. Went home for the day and I am excited to say that the old girl is finally off of the rotisserie. I'll let the pics do the talking.

Very cool! That looks like a nice setup, but you might want to rethink your power source - the dog might get tired

Keep the pictures coming!

Someone surely has to know what the dog to horsepower ratio is on here? Anyone?

Haha oh my gosh. Last guy came up with 8 dogs = 1 HP. If I want 400 HP, I'll need 3,199 more dogs with my current setup. What a sight that would be!

Well you asked.....



Some kennels still concentrate solely on pure-bred sled dogs, typically Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes or Canadian or American Inuit Dogs, but the majority of modern sled dogs found in long-distance races are truthfully 'genetic mutts' and the name that is most commonly used to refer to them as a group today is 'Alaskan Huskies'.

Bane, the little monster in the pic, is a German Sheppard/Mastiff mix. He may not qualify as a sled dog, but he can pull me around really well if I'm not ready for him.

Should've mentioned I didn't look at the link. Basing the comment on what you guys said about X dog power equals X horse power.

The real question here is...
What breed of horse did James Watt use to come up with the formula for horsepower, in the late 1700's?

The real question nobody is asking is why aren't we considering pugs here? Sure you'd need way more pugs, but the ridiculous factor goes up by an order of magnitude.

Quick update, I'll be heading back to get some more work on the car tomorrow. Get ready for a few more pics.

Anyway, since the car is back on the ground, I am trying to figure out what to do with the steel square tubing I used for the rotisserie. If anyone wants it or knows someone that could use it, I'll give you guys a good deal.

Let me know!

After thought.....

Does anyone know if the doors can be mounted with the fenders on? I think you can, might be a little tighter, but I still think you should be able to.

I guess it doesn't really matter since I'm sure they will be going on and off a few more times anyway.

I've always seen And been told to do doors first because you have to line those up with the qt panels then hood. Then fenders and split the difference with gaps for the fenders.


But can you do doors after fenders, yes probably be best to take off the hinges, attach to the body, then attack doors

5 months........

Man have I seriously lost track with this project.

Some of you may know that this car is stored at my parents house 150 miles away from where I live. I was able to get up there maybe once a month to put in a few hours which was not ideal by any means but dad had the space and all the tools I'd ever need.

These past few months have been crazy with work, planning a wedding moving into a house, etc., I have had zero time to progress on this project. But now that I have a place of my own and the space to compensate for my car, I can finally get back to the grind!!!

It's been fun watching others join the board and start their own projects, but pretty soon I will be flooding this thread with tons of new photos to update you all on my baby!

I'll be taking a trip up north to get her and will finally have her back on Omaha where she belongs! Seriously can't wait!
