Other purchases

Well the fuel cell isn't here yet some I'm going to go through the other things I've bought for this project.

First off is a set of UMI rear control arms for my 10 bolt. Those were $90 on summer sale.

Next is a B&M rachet shifter that I actually got used for $50 with a cable included.

Then a Proform 2100 cfm fan for $65 for the radiator, I think I'm going to need a second one of these too.
I got the radiator used for $50

And finally since I'm using a turbo 350 tranny, I had to get this change over kit to mount the torque arm to the trans. That was $95 plus a bushing $10.

Most other things I have gotten locally/used and aren't/neverwere even for sale by retailers anymore.



I also have my short term wish list:
First is this blue metallic paint that will look amazing on this style car. I'll make it a bit darker with black primer.

A new set of cheap air rear shocks for now. Moving to 4 link with coilovers before too long..

The back half frame rails and 4 link suspension mounts from EdQuay.

He did not respond to my email about using his pictures so you'll just have to use the link haha.

And most importantly the 383 stroker rotating assembly, pre balanced from Eagle.

  3. Very interesting read. I've got a little play in my steering in the front with a little bump, I'm thinking its inner tie rods which is a real pain in the ass on my car.
