Nice Dart. Keep us posted with the progress. My 66 turned 43 yesterday.
I had a cake made and had a little fun with it. Mike

For now 8 3/4 with bbp axels,all new brakes(shoes,w.cyl.,drums)front brake conv. new LBJ,pads,rotors and calipers.After that work I might just work on gettin the 6 banger with the clifford stuff tuned up to par.The car has some funky gas peddle setup(it,,s chrome one)maybe lokar also like the rest.Also need to work on electrical,I think it,s the starter relay??They had to hot wire it to get it on the trailer.??Investigating while I,m laid-off til Jan.19 gives me lots of time.

Nice Dart Scott. My uncle had one in the early seventies. Red, with Cragars, side pipes, air shocks jacked to the sky..it was really cool at that time. You got the welder? I am having fun with mine. It's a great little outfit. I just got called out plowing.....again!! Have a great night.

Well I ordered my axels from Trevor on this site,he sent them out Wed. and they came today!2 days for delivery?I,m impressed.Just went out and slid them in no problem.Now I can get my new brake hardware on,and set her back down on her own feet(car has been up on stands since X-mas)make a driveshaft and take her for a spin around the block.I,ll keep posted.Maybe next is the mini-tub?Can anybody tell me the biggest 15 inch tire I can squeeze under there without the mini-tub?15x7 bbp rallys.

Toolman,taking the rear and other parts off this car were a breeze.I guess cause no salt,the threads on the ends of the bolts are still brand new.I only seee that working at Ford.it,s also nice to hit something with a hammer and not get crap falling on you.The car is coming along very well,do to the fact it,s all I do being off work.I,ve got 1 week left,then I go back for 2 then off again for 3 weeks.Next I have to find a w.shield.Til later:cheers:
