Thanks. I am going to do my very best on this car to only have white and black, everything. The color in the emblems is the only exception. That will be almost impossible but I am going to give it a shot.

Well, white, black, and some aluminum.

Finally got started on the short block. My machine shop had a Scat forged 496 kit that the guy never paid for kinda story. I have to buy new pistons, but the machining of the block has started. I now have to get serious about collecting all of my engine parts now. I might have found a new T56, in my garage. I had it for my 1970 Camaro but that car is going to take years to get all welded back together. So I might have a 496 big block 6 speed Laguna soon.

Nice work! Is the speaker box made of MDF? It looks sturdy, but I bet it's heavy. You're going to need those cubes to haul it around. Smile

Hey.  That box is more like a structure than a speaker box.  It's all #3/4" MDF.  It takes almost two sheets of MDF to make one like that.  Supports and braces everywhere.  It is a little heavy, but custom made for my Chevy.  (Now that was corny)  I think by the time I am finished with this car it will weight 4500 pounds.  It's as fat as a new Challenger.

I like that front bumper. Did you do that to the back as well? I am "fixing" the big bumper mistake that gives these cars a bad name. More pics would be cool.

Left the rear alone it's really not that bad on the 73. I need to build a cross member to connect the front frame horns together because the factory crash bumper actually also adds rigidity to the frame to keep it from twisting
