Updated my '69

Haven't posted here in a while, but thought I would post some shots of the updates I did to my '69 RS recently. I usually post on Lateral-g and Pro-touring and here is a link to the L-G thread with more details about the updates: http://www.lateral-g.net/forums/showthread.php4?t=29563

List of mods are as follows:
DSE Mini-tubs
Chris Alston G-link rear suspension
New Moser 12-bolt, 33 spline, Tru-Trac with 3.73's 54.5" width
Fikse Classic FM5 wheels 18x12 rears 5.375" BS 18x8.5 fronts - technipolished
Toyo R888 rubber, 335-30-18 rears & 245-40-18 fronts
Gearbox Stage II T56 rebuild
New Spec Stage 3+ clutch
Solid motor mounts
New poly trans mount

Some highlights are we kept the stock width Ricks stainless tank and ran my rear exit tailpipes without notching the tank. I ran into some issues concerning ride height with the G-link as I wanted the rear end to sit low. The shop ended up using a shorter 200lb spring and moved the shocks up a notch.

Driving impressions are good so far, the car rides very nice, much smoother and less bouncy VS the old leafs. The Toyo rubber sticks like glue, I can go WOT in 1st and get no wheelspin (have tried mainly on hot sunny days) so I may need a future power upgrade on my little 346 Heads/Cam LS1.

Anyways, onto some pics:

Before with the leafs, stock tubs and old TTII's




New wheels and rubber:
18 x 12's




18 x 8.5's

With Toyo R888 Rubber.
245-40-18 fronts

335-30-18 Rears

Once the Tranny was pulled apart it ended up needed new 5th, 6th and reverse gears and sychros.

Pics of the Mini-Tub install:

First decent shots of the car completed, the car in these pics is absolutely filthy.

Re: Updated my '69

Some more recent pictures and that's it. I have a few more mods planned and next major ones are a big cube LS stroker. Possibly a RHS block build in the 450-460 cu in range and a new front subframe either DSE or Speedtech. Also planning to shoot some better pics of the car if I ever find the time :lol:

Re: Updated my '69

Thanks guys, color is a candy red over a silver base. Wheels have already been sold as well as my old rear suspension and OE GM 12bolt. I posted it on here a while ago but people thought my prices were out to lunch and I ended up getting good $$$ selling the stuff locally.

Re: Updated my '69

I've always been a fan of your ride, and I love that you went with non-TT rims!

Looks excellent!

Re: Updated my '69

I know it's not really an update but my buddy just sent me this one today I think it looks pretty good.

Just do not have time outside of work to take some beauty shots with twin 1 year olds at home.
