Thanks for the kind words.  g3chevy and myself where talking after the dust settled about how much fun it would be just to build these cars all day.  Of course we would go broke, but I think eating and having a roof over your head is overrated.  I did have a couple of hours today and worked on something a little easier.  I bolted the shocks to the frame and started fitting the modified bumper on.  I am using the brackets from our Canadian member and they are awesome.  I still have some fitting to do so it's not perfect, nor will it ever be.  This car is being built as a Road Warrior, not a show car.  Just like they did back in the Daytona days.  It might turn out looking like someone bump drafted me.

A little more work.  Working on the trans tunnel trying to get the T56 to fit.  I also started the wiring job.  If I could just figure out where the red wire goes.

Getting started.  This trans is HUGE


Getting closer


Install of new fuse box.  Much better than my old rusted one.

I had a chance to bring it home today.  Now I can work on it at night when I get a chance.  

Loaded up and leaving the country.  


Finally back at home

That has to be a very good feeling. At this pace you'll have that beast on the road this spring.

Distributor in and wires on.  I really like these new cross fire caps.

I think you used the wrong wires Kevin. I believe those are typically used on overhead high voltage power lines like the ones behind my house.

Thanks. I have used them on several projects and have always been happy. My 86 C10 has one now. I need to get it the cross fire cap like this one. Looks so much better than the wires crossing each other. I like how they make them just for your combo.

As for you g3chevy, I just ate another steak for lunch. As for the power lines, in the manual it says, and I quote:
"This distributor puts out a spark compared to a Nuclear Power Plant with a run away core reaction"

I would appreciate it if you can let me know where you get it. Besides looking better, it's much less of a pain to hook up. When I did mine originally, I was only able to find one company making a crossfire cap for GM HEI, and every single distributor I contacted (Jegs, Summit, Pace, etc) were unable to actually get it. I eventually gave up on it and resigned myself to the PITA stock terminal arrangement.

Mine came with the Pro Series Street/Strip kit that DUI made for me. I think ACCEL has one for their distributors but I don't know of any for the stock HEI. Don't the caps interchange? I need to look into this for you.

Well, I just looked while I was typing and found this:

The ACCEL cap is the one I was trying to track down back then (12+ years ago), and that's the one you couldn't get your hands on.  At the time I figured there were problems with it and they discontinued it so I was stuck. DUI only offered the stock-configuration cap at the time.

The Crossfire looks like it would work nicely, thank you!  Based on the WHOIS info for that domain, looks like they started in 2010, which would have been a couple years after I gave up. Rolling Eyes

That steak last night was amazing! Wish I would have brought some home to snack on today like you did!
