he wanted to keep his center of gravity low so filling his tires with water/window washer fluid mix this will help on side hills

haha ya unfortunatly, i gotta buy a sewing machine tho...


gonna do all marine vinyl interior (seats, dash, headliner)
dash will be the easiest part, rest... not so much, thinking all tan and 2 tone brown exterior

bit of rust repair but nothing major, just a small hole in the rocker, and some bubbling in the rear behind the wheels, new inners and outers on the front, new passenger door, lots of wiring, and some engine degreaser and new seals

this one has overdrive and a built 350, and the axles should hold up to 33's on the street so im not to worried about it
and if i swap axles... i cant use my fancy blue rally rims

id prefer a set of ramhorns, headers get in teh way of everything, and they always leak:confused0006:

actually ram horns flow better than most cheap headers anyway
plus there much more reliable
so unless he was going to put good headers in, i would run what he has

yah from what i have read ramhorns are pretty cool. even the aftermarket world still makes them, they came stock on ome corvettes did they not?
