Quick update !

Finally had the time to switch up the springs!





Also changed the Sealed Beams for the Raybrig Clear ones. Loves them! Kept them classic, with OE halogen bulbs.



After this, we began to install the new floor carpet replacement. I must admit, I've seen better in the past. The mold is okay, but not WOW. After all, wasn't so bad. A 8,5-9/10. Less than 1hr of job.







Tonight is pretty cool. My buddy Jeremie is painting the inner parts of the doors, fenders, body, etc.

Friday night is the complete respray at the booth. So stoked!

I got a couple questions: with the swift springs, did you have to get those SLL collars from PBM to get the springs to seat property or was it basically a direct replacement? What height, ID, and Spring rate are you running?

Love the build been watching it since your first post

StockInteriors was the one I had a 10/10 review over the years! Unfortunately, I tried another company (www.1aautomotive.com) and like I said, the details aren't as good as SI.com. The 40-50$ I saved wasn't really worthy!

Still keeping a bit of suspense on the color revelation, but you'll see in the next weeks

Full respray went SO WELL! No problem at all, no surprises.





Went back this morning, glasses are already back on.



And we've slowly started mounting back parts! Feels so good!





Another big day tomorrow! I'll throw another update during the night

Love the fenders man!!! Question, Did you roll and pull before the cut or after?
Wondering how big you think the front fenders are now?

That was another thought of mine.

Seeing the single cam cover painted a few pages back, I would really want to see this car come together with a proper engine swap.

Phase 1 didn't include motor/engine bay. I had enough stuff to do with restoration / budget. I also wanted to enjoy the car during the season so I kept the KA stock.

Phase 2 will be next winter, complete engine bay work / swap !

The car looks sick man! Can we get some more pictures of your custom fenders now that they're finished? I was thinking of modding mine in a similar way.
