Project - Attitude Adjustment begins

Post by Zaptiah on Sun Jul 22, 2018 12:18 pm

I have officially started my laguna build this week, and for once I am actually taking pictures lol.

I did a tasteful steering wheel upgrade


And have started on the back window repair. This is the only spot of rust i can find on the entire car.


I also dropped the original 350 off at the machinists and in a few weeks will have a new 400hp small block to install.

I have a new set of plastics for the interior that i am going to respray in SEM coatings OE-3 so the old plastics will match the new dash pad i have




Most of the plastics are a close match of the red color already but will be all matching when done.

This should get you close. I ordered it from NXT Parts as a complete kit from their eBay store.

this is the link to the eBay store

https://www.ebay.com/str/NXT-PARTS?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

And here is the link to their website which has more options.

https://www.nxtparts.com/Chevelle-Steering-Wheel-Components-Volante-s/178.htm

You will have to email them to get the same brass riveted wheel like I have as I don't think they have it in a kit right now. They carry the Volante wheels and autopro parts kits. The wheel, adapter and horn button were awesome. the horn button parts kits was OK and got the job done, but I would have liked something a little nicer. I will probably revisit that when I finish the big stuff, its fine for now and I'm the only one who notices it since its out of sight.

Great. I really like the billet adapter hub and the wheel itself. It feels really really nice in the hand. Glad i could help 👍

So a quick update that will serve as a nice snap shot of what it was like before i got crazy. Here is a link to it running with the current crate motor.

Its really just the most basic of hot rodding builds really. Having the block, rods, and crank redone since those can be saved. New Liberty alum heads and rpm alum dual plane intake. More cam (around here we race the "corvette" cams. I can get the specs if needed) and a point of compression. Along with my fresh edlebrock and a good set of mid length headers I shouldn't have any problem hitting that number. Motortrend engine masters did a build like this on a stock crate motor and got over 400 with iron Vortec heads. That was kind of the inspiration. My thought is with a few slightly better components I will be good to go.

That is one sharp wheel. Really matches the interior nicely.

Not to much to update. Waiting on the new motor to be finished amd a few more parts to arrive. If my crate motor and trans sells in time then im going to pull the trigger on a t56 magnum swap. Unfortunately the better half wont let me do it before then lol.

Did receive new goodies .... New a6 compressor in that box amd new posts and clips for the rear window.
