    Yea, I probably should have left it like that for a little longer, ran 10.80s first time out, probably had so 50's in it, and could drive it anywhere on 93 octane, but nooooo,....ha

    That's how I do body removal/installation by myself on occasion it balances out almost perfect

    Will be starting the minimal bodywork needed this week. Hope to have the floor pan all cleaned and sound deadened this week as well.

    Also plan to put our 71 Stage 1 4speed up on the rotisserie since its now empty

    Good luck on your build, I think it's cool you have had it scents high school. I have had my 72 GS 350 scents high school to,19 years ago.

    The "Important Parts" ha,.. using the guts of a new tach in the original housing and faceplate, had to use the lens bezel out of the reproduction, which surprisingly fit perfect and will all go together really nice

    Emblem will clean up really well, not so much as one pit, dash plaque is pretty clean too

    Rear spoiler had been replaced with the first aftermarket replacement made to the 1970 spoiler dimensions, really rare piece according to Duane, not as good as the original but second best I suppose. It needs some love but nothing I can't handle. Grill is a NOS, RH inner fender is a NOS, and Fan Shroud is a NOS. Wheels are original "7.0's" they are decent but not as nice as I'd like but will do I reckon. I've only had two "WG" wheels in my life and they were drilled for screws and in terrible shape. Getting really antsy but just short on time

    Can't forget the original 71/72 front spoiler, not correct for a 70, but as close as one can get and better than aftermarket IMG_20180322_181044333.jpg

    Don’t forget to apply the factory black out treatment over your intermediate steering shaft & suspension , just in case eagle eye Tumas is judging
