I was sorting pictures the other night and came across these jewels.  I took pics of the process when I did restoration on the K member.  I failed to show this detail because of the rush to get the car to the Saleen Nationals and its one that can't be seen now.  I...

Dyno Session and Rear End Rebuild

Clean Parts

It's like Christmas when you get parts back from the machine shop.  it's also a reality check on how good the parts are that you have. The timing cover has some corrosion from being on the car for so long and it looks like someone got aggressive with it when removing...

The Best Laid Plans…

The Best Laid Plans…

Back in February, the time of my last post, we were moving pretty swift.  Things were coming together and I was working diligently towards a deadline.  Then shortly after the last post things started to go awry.  Don't worry, it wasn't anything to do with the build of...

Boxes Jumping off Shelves

Boxes Jumping off Shelves

It's like Christmas all over again opening boxes of parts.  This past week I was able to get the short block painted back to the cast iron grey and then assemble the long block.  In that process a few boxes left the shelves they've been sitting on for years.  So the...
