My car is along way from being "restored" because right now I'm just upgrading everything.
Brakes, have rotors where they fit and just took caliper mounting brackets to a friend thats going to let me use his stuff to modify them out the needed distance to put calipers on them. Therefore all liability will be on me. He's a "Pro" so I know that I'm in good hands.
Engine, I have crank and rods torqued in bare block but while manhandling the block on my engine stand, I "pulled" a rib. Going to take a while to heal so can't button engine up yet.
This is disappointing because I've been helping a neighbor set some windows and a patio door and couldn't help with the door this PM. He has a "cherry-picker" engine hoist and is going to let me use it to change my old engine out and install my 496.
Thanks for asking. And you are welcome to drop by anytime. I'm in the phone book (Paul (D.) McConnell), just call and I will give you instructions to get to me or else I will come and get you. I'm only a couple of miles from the Nowel's supermarket that you can see from I-70 on the east side of town. pdq67
