    Well got the floor taken care of with the aluminum sound dampener put the carpet in from ACC. Took the car for a drive around the neighborhood was really quiet I like it I think I’m going to have to change my exhaust now from 2 1/2 to maybe open because it’s so quiet. Just joking

                Just messing with the alternator mounting because of the aluminum heads! Wasn't any big deal at all! I will need longer belts though!

                    Got in to a dilemma the other night. I put the 11/16" tie rods and adjusting sleeves together , bolted the pitman arm on the steering box and installed the idler arm. Put the tie rod assemblies and center link on and the passenger side hits the torsion bar. Looks like the idler arm and center link need upgraded to 73 and up style? I already have a center link located and ordered the idler arm.

                      @RON REAGLE
                      I believe your center link is on backwards. Tie rods should be forward, not rearward.

                          The drivers side end of the center link is a slightly longer "flat" (where the pitman attaches) than the passenger side.

                                      I got pretty far without do it wrong yet. It's still a work in progress though.

                                        Still putting my Engine together. My OCD thought those freeze plugs needed to be polished. :)

                                          Got my instrument panel finished!
                                          Now I just have to install the new sensors, and wire in the car side of the plug.
