    Just to get this back on my car... lol
    Rear brakes are workable until I find a drum or two, rear suspension is all done. Fuel tank and lines are set. Transmissions been serviced. Moving on to prepping the engine bay for repainting.

    OK - newest pics - Painted engine bay, blacked out grille area. Front end and brakes/lines are done. Transmission, brake lines, and driveshaft assembly is back in. Heater box is back in... Next up is the restored booster and master, and various wire harnesses and misc before the engine goes back in. She's getting there...

    Engine's back in place, getting things buttoned up under the hood (still awaiting a few trinkets), and putting the hood back on - then it's on to the interior and body/paint.

    Latest update... I drove her for the first time Friday! Pretty sure its been at least 40 years since it was on the road, given no inspection stickers of any kind on it. Runs great, shifts well, floats like she should. Next steps are interior, then the body/paint.
